Poker in New Jersey is booming and you don’t have to look any further than the poker room at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for proof. In addition to the lucrative cash games, daily tournaments (including $3,000 Guaranteed Mondays, $10,000 Guaranteed Wednesdays & Fridays, and the 24/7 Sit & Go tourneys) continue to attract players from all over New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and other neighboring states.
But that’s just the tip of the chip stack. Borgata is known for its mega land-based tournament series throughout the year. Just a few months after wrapping up the Borgata Winter Poker Open, Atlantic City’s premier poker destination is putting millions in guaranteed prize money on the table once again in the Borgata Spring Poker Open.
The tournament series runs from April 12th through 29th and features a $1 million guaranteed kickoff tournament, a $1 million guaranteed championship event, and over a dozen other tournaments, many of which come with 6-figure guarantees.
Borgata’s Spring Poker Open series continues to attract players not just from the east coast, but from around the country. It’s arguably one of the most respected poker tournament series in the United States and one that continues to offer guarantee-busting prize pools over and over again. And while players flock to Borgata from all over the country, those in New Jersey have a bit of an upper hand thanks to BorgataPoker.com, the casino’s online poker site.
BorgataPoker.com continues to run satellites for its famous land-based tournament series and in the past, players have found great success steamrolling a few bucks into a seat in a major land-based event. In the most recent Borgata Winter Poker Open, Vinny Pahuja won two online poker satellites that paid out land-based seats — one in the $3,500 buy-in Championship and one in the kickoff tournament. And don’t forget, Asher Conniff made history by turning online satellite wins into over $1 million during the 2015 Borgata Spring Poker Open.
Online poker players who want to follow in Asher’s and Vinny’s footsteps have no shortage of chances. Beginning Sunday, March 27th, BorgataPoker.com is hosting daily online satellites that feed into some of the signature tournaments in the Borgata Spring Poker Open.
Players at BorgataPoker.com can enter a $5 buy-in tournament and compete online for a one in 10 shot at a $45 entry ticket. The ticket can be used to enter the $45 satellite for Event #1 ($1 Million Guaranteed) or Event #11 ($500,000 Guaranteed).
Also on the schedule are $45 qualifiers for the Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship Super Satellite. The online qualifier pays out a $400 online Super Satellite entry to one in every 10 players. In the $400 Super Satellite, one in every 10 players will win a $3,000 package that includes the $2,700 buy-in for the land-based Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship ($1 Million Guaranteed) and $300 for accommodations.
The abundance of opportunity has brought a lot of people from neighboring states to the Garden State. While you have to be physically present in New Jersey to play for real money at BorgataPoker.com, you don’t need to live in New Jersey. That means players 21 and over from anywhere in the United States can create a free account and win their spot in a multi-million dollar poker tournament for a handful of dollars.
If you’re new to online poker, choosing BorgataPoker.com over the competition is a no-brainer. Based in Atlantic City and with a commitment to both live and land-based poker, BorgataPoker.com understands what live and online players want. That, and it’s one of the only places to qualify for the Borgata Spring Poker Open.
New players looking to be a part of the Borgata Spring Poker Open experience can sign up and get $20 free to play with off the bat, plus a 100% match bonus up to $600 on their first deposit. With free money off the bat, those Borgata Spring Poker Open seats could end up costing you nothing.
