This Sunday’s (05 July) online poker action is going to be very exciting for PokerStars‘ players who are in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The online poker giant is marking the start of July with a brand-new promotion called “Half-Price Sundays“.
Both PokerStars PA and PokerStars NJ will reduce buy-ins by 50% on some of their Sunday tournaments, and the coolest thing about this is that the guarantees will remain the same, giving players a great chance to win big for just a portion of the actual price!
Players at PokerStars PA will get the opportunity to compete in six Sunday tournaments, with entry fees cut by half. They include the Sunday Warm Up, which now comes with a buy-in of just $15, with the guaranteed prize pool remaining at $10,000; the Sunday Storm now with a more affordable buy-in of only $5 ($3,500 guaranteed), and the $50 buy-in Sunday Special ($85,000 guaranteed).
Both the Sunday High Roller and Sunday Supersonic are also included in the promo, with buy-ins being reduced to $125 and $25 respectively.
To take part in the promo, click on the “Tourney” in the PokerStars PA lobby and then select “Half Price“. You can also get in via satellites, but take note though that previously won tickets for Sunday tournaments don’t apply for this new promotion.
Half Price Sunday in NJ
PokerStars NJ is also running the promo across a similar line up of six Sunday tournaments taking place on July 5. They are the $25 buy-in, $10K GTD Sunday Warm Up; $5 buy-in, $5K GTD Sunday Storm; $100 buy-in, $40K GTD Sunday Special; $250 buy-in, $8K GTD Sunday High Roller; and the $37.50 buy-in, $5K GTD Sunday Supersonic.
Just like in PA, regular tickets aren’t valid for use in this special promo. The guarantees stay as they are despite the reduced buy-ins.
The Half Price Sunday promo comes following the massive success of the Summer Series which ran on both PokerStars PA and PokerStars NJ last month. In Pennsylvania, more than $1.2 million in prize money was awarded to the winners, smashing its initial guarantee of $750,000. The Main Event also attracted a huge turnout, generating $242,300 in total prize pool.
Over in New Jersey, the Summer Series also surpassed its $500K initial guarantee after paying out $640,000 in total prizes, $97,400 of that went to the Main Event. PokerStars also recently brought its fast-fold poker variant “Zoom” to its NJ market. It could be introduced in PA anytime soon.
