The online poker market in New Jersey has been a highly competitive one over the last 11 months of its burgeoning operation. Leading the pack are two major poker networks, Party Borgata in first, and WSOP NJ mere 10 player average behind. With these operators so close in contention, it was time to pull out the big guns. That’s exactly what WSOP NJ’s marketing team had in mind when they decided to encourage new players to make a first deposit for a chance to win a free trip to Las Vegas.
From now until October 31st, all New Jersey customers who make their very first purchase at WSOP.com will be entered to win a 2-night stay in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood. The promotion is only available to new customers who have never made a deposit on WSOP NJ, which greatly narrows the field of eligible winners. As such, New Jersey’s other online poker networks could find many of their devoted players making the transition to WSOP for a chance at the valuable prize.
In order to qualify, a player’s first purchase must be a minimum of $25, and must be made before 11:59 pm ET on October 31st, 2014. Participants have to be at least 21 years of age and physically located in New Jersey when depositing and playing on the site. During the deposit phase, the promo code “VEGASTRIP” must be entered. In addition to the Las Vegas prize package entry, players will receive a generous 100% up to $400 deposit bonus.
To further increase a player’s chances of winning, the online poker room is offering additional entries for every 10 Action Player Points (APP) generated before the 11:59pm, October 31st deadline. Players will accumulate APP every time they play real money online poker games, either at cash tables or tournaments, and they can rack up rather quickly. Every $1 contributed to rake at cash games is worth 2 APP, and every $1 paid in tournament fees is worth another 2 APP.
According to the fine print of the drawing’s terms and conditions – yes, it’s good to read the fine print – players can earn even more entries by simply sending an email to WSOPpromotions@caesars.com. Players can receive one additional entry per day, one for each email sent, up until October 31st. The email must contain the following: “your name, address, phone number, WSOP.com user name, email address, age, and the title of this promotion”.
The online poker site will hold the drawing on November 3rd at approximately 3:00pm ET. The lucky winner will receive “economy airfare for two to Las Vegas from any major, domestic U.S. airport”, plus a two night stay at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, situated right on the Las Vegas Strip, and a Total Rewards gift card worth $200. The gift card can be used at most restaurants and bars within the resort (or any other participating, Caesars-owned property), as well as the front desk, Sin City Comedy Box Office, for room service purchases, cabana rentals and even in the hotel’s wedding chapel. The winner has until December 30, 2014 to use the airfare vouchers, and the flight must be booked at least three weeks in advance.
