The Unveiling of Borgata Poker’s Promo in New Jersey: 30 Millionth Hand
New Jersey has been doing online poker for more than three months now. Today until the start of Spring, the biggest poker network of the said state celebrates its 15 key milestone hands. With this, BorgataPoker.com announces this week its Countdown to 30 million Hands promotion. In this promo, players participating in the milestone will be rewarded with cash prizes.
This promo starts with the 25 millionth hand. It’s actually very simple. Whoever wins that hand will get $1,000. Then the rest of the players who got dealt with cards will each receive $100. There will be no other difficult calculations and multipliers. The winner gets $1000 and everybody else gets $100 each. It’s as simple as that.
Similar prize will be given to the next 4M-hand marks. After the 29 millionth hand, the milestone hands would be in 100K hand increments (like 29,100,000, 29,200,000 and so on and so forth). Then whoever wins the 30 millionth hand will be awarded with a hefty cash prize of $10,000. The rest of the players who got dealt into the hand will each get $1,000.
Furthermore, BorgataPoker will be counting all kinds of real-money hands like SnGs and multi-table tournaments, not just cash game tables. So unlike PokerStars, this kind of promotion is really suitable for everyone.
For multiple pots, the main pot winner will also become the top prize winner. In the event that the main pot is divided, Borgata Poker will also divide the prize of the winner as well as the prize of the other players among the hands that have won.
This milestone hand promotion is just the second held by a licensed U.S. online poker room. The first regulated U.S. online poker room who did this was Ultimate Poker which was also the first legal poker room that went live in the state of Nevada. It was last July when Ultimate Poker gave out $5,000 to the winner of the 10 millionth hand and $500 to each of the other players who got dealt into the hand. Then the prized got doubled when the stakes reached a particular level.
