Online poker players in Michigan and New Jersey now have even more to play for at PokerStars. After the launch of the shared market between the two states, the platform announced a complete tournament lineup on Friday that sees players battling for a share of $1 million in guarantees every week.
The new lineup includes a packed schedule of daily and nightly tournaments. Bigger guarantees are also coming to the Pennsylvania PokerStars platform.
“We are excited to announce that we will be guaranteeing $1 million per week across our tournaments for our shared Michigan and New Jersey pool,” PokerStars USA managing director Severin Rasset said in a news release.
“The combined liquidity of New Jersey and Michigan enables us to reinforce our weekly schedule with more tournaments available every day, a wider variety of buy-ins, bigger guarantees,I and giving our players the best available in the market.”
