October is officially here, and while many of us are anticipating the approach of Halloween by thinking of clever ways to scare our friends, family and neighbors, WSOP.com is celebrating with a frightfully impressive strain of new promotions for its New Jersey online poker players. A total of five special promotions have been added to the menu for this month, valued at $100,000+. For online poker tournament aficionados, the inaugural $60k GTD Fall Poker Festival takes the cake. Other promos include a weekly SnG Leaderboard competition, a weekly APP Dash, a WSOP Main Event Play Along event each Sunday and an exclusive reload deposit bonus worth 100% up to $400.
Fall Poker Festival – $60k GTD
WSOP NJ has announced the launch of its first annual Fall Poker Festival, featuring 8 events with a total guaranteed prize pool of $60,000. WSOP’s FPF online poker series is for New Jersey residents only, scheduled for October 12th – 19th, with a mix of NLHE, PLO, Bounty, 6-Max, Re-Entry and R&A events. As far as big money prize pools go, the highlights will be Event #1 and Event #8. Event #1 is a $200 NLHE Re-Entry with $20k up for grabs. Event #8 is the Fall Poker Festival Main Event, another $200 NLHE tourney with R&A and $25k GTD.
Making this an even more special occasion is the fact that the online poker site will be handing out its very first WSOP.com Championship Ring to the winner of the FPF Main Event.
SnG Leaderboards – $7,500 Weekly
Every week in October, Sit’n’Go fans can earn a place on the leaderboard to earn a share of the weekly $7,500 prize pool. The leaderboard is split into three levels; Low Limit (up to $5), Medium Limit (up to $20) and High Limit ($25+), with respective prize pools of $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000. The top 30 players in each tier will win a prize.
October APP Dash – $5,000 Weekly
Earning APP (Action Poker Points) now has even more rewards at the online poker room. Each week, the top 30 APP earners receive a share of a $5,000 prize pool. Players earn APP at WSOP.com by playing in raked cash games (2 APP for every $1 raked) and paid tournaments (2 APP for every $1 in fees).
ESPN/WSOP Main Event Play Along – $2,500 GTD Weekly
Starting last weekend, ESPN is airing the 2014 WSOP Main Event every Sunday at 9pm. At the same time, players can participate in $2,500 GTD Turbo tournaments at WSOP.com. Using the catch phrase, “Watch the show; Play for dough”, the online poker room is hosting these tournaments every Sunday from September 28th through November 9th, leading up to conclusion of the Main Event final table on the 10th. Each Turbo tourney features a $10 buy-in with R&A.
Exclusive Reload Bonus – 100% up to $400
Between the dates of October 12th and 19th – while the Fall Poker Festival is in full swing – every member of the New Jersey online poker room is eligible to use a special reload deposit bonus code to receive a 100% up to $400 bonus. The code, “OCT2014”, can only be used once per player.
