Bonuses and Promotions for New Jersey Poker Players

Bonuses and Promotions are popping up all over due to the multiple poker sites available to play in New Jersey. Keeping up date on the newest bonuses and promotions could get exhausting. Don’t worry. Now we have a this section of NJ Poker to share the latest bonuses and promotions with you.

What type of bonuses and promotions are out there?

There are various types:

  1. Deposit Bonus. There’s no surprise that the poker sites want players to deposit on their site. So they start promoting deposit bonuses, where they will match up to 100%  of your deposit. The catch? Usually there’s a limit to the match (example $600) and you have to clear the bonus in increments by playing. You earn reward points per dollar spent. So in most cases don’t expect to see the bonus instantly. The good news is if you are planning on playing poker for the long haul you can benefit from this.
  2. Free rolls. There are a ton of free rolls running around the clock. As a long time poker player I can’t tell you how many people ask me “how do I start playing?” I always answer the same way. “How much time and money are you willing to invest?” Of course the answers vary but, one thing is stays a constant. “Well I’m not looking to spend a lot of money.” Ok. Great. There are plenty of free rolls that you can play for free. “Yea, but I can’t win that much playing free rolls? Can I?” Yes. You can. I took this dialog from a recent conversation that proved this possible. He played free rolls for a month and satellited into a Sunday major where he won over $7,000. He started with nothing and now has an awesome ROI with a healthy bankroll.
  3. Free credit. When the New Jersey poker sites first opened back in Nov. 2013 most were offering a free $10-$25 credit. The credit usually had to be played across multiple game types. Meaning, out of a $25 free credit, five dollars was allowed for cash games, ten dollars for MTT’s, and five dollars for casino. Some sites are still offering this. However this is for players who have never signed up to the sites.
  4. Monthly Events. All the sites run a couple of special events online per year. Usually involving a Mtt series of some sort. Where the sites run bigger tournaments with bigger prize pools. When the poker sites run these online events it is usually accompanied with a combination of the mention above(1,2,3).
