New Jersey’s May Promotions Offer Something For Everyone

May 12, 2016 New Jersey’s May Promotions Offer Something For Everyone

The summer isn’t quite upon us, but that hasn’t stopped WSOP New Jersey from turning up the heat when it comes to its promotions.

Throughout the month of May, is offering players a veritable smorgasbord of promotions, ranging from prize packages to the upcoming World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, to Happy Hours and a low-limit tournament series for players who prefer to stay home and grind online from the Jersey Shore.

Here’s a look at the promotions currently available at New Jersey.

Win your way to Las Vegas for a colossal event

This weekend, New Jersey will be hosting a satellite tournament that will send at least 10 New Jersey online poker players to Nevada to compete in the Colossus II tournament.

In just its second year, the Colossus tournament is proving to be one of the highlights of the WSOP schedule, and could very well be the most fashionable event to play outside of the Main Event.

The number of entries in last year’s Colossus was over 22,000, and this time around the WSOP is has slapped a $7 million guarantee on the tournament, with the winner walking away with at least $1 million. I’m not a betting man, but I’d wager a lot of money the Colossus II will obliterate these guarantees.

The upcoming Colossus satellite tournament, dubbed Colossal X, takes place Sunday, May 15, at 3 p.m. on NJ.

In addition to the $565 buy-in, satellite winners will also receive $600 to help cover their travel expenses.
