The partypoker US Network is adding end game bonuses along with big prize pools in November for players in New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Each state hosts its own independent Online Series monthly. Those have been converted this month into the End Boss Poker Series.
The move is in conjunction with four-time World Poker Tour champion Darren “End Boss” Elias becoming a site ambassador. He helped develop the series with a wide range of players in mind.
“We’re thrilled to introduce the End Boss Poker Series to our players, BetMGM director of poker Luke Staudenmaier said in a news release. “During the development process, we worked closely with Darren, a poker legend, to ensure that the series was accessible to those celebrating the holiday weekend and created with the entire partypoker US Network in mind, from our recreational players to our most competitive players.”
Here’s a look at the partypoker online poker skins in each state hosting events:
- New Jersey – partypoker, BetMGM, Borgata Poker
- Pennsylvania – BetMGM, Borgata Poker
- Michigan – BetMGM
All three markets are “ringed-in” environments, meaning players only compete with others within that state. The End Boss Series runs concurrently in each state.
End Boss invades New Jersey
New Jersey online poker players will have the chance to grab up to $315,000 in guaranteed prize pools. The End Boss Series runs Nov. 23-28 with seven events and buy-ins ranging from $215 to $1,060. Elaias will be playing in all events throughout the series.
“Want a chance to face Darren Elias at the poker table?” partypoker US Network notes. “Play in any of our End Boss November Online Series tournaments for the chance to face the poker legend on the online felt in New Jersey.”
The player knocking out Elias in the $1,060 Main Event earns a free two-night stay at the Borgata in Atlantic City. The lucky player then squares off against Elias.
