Anyone can sign up and play (provided they're in NJ) during the soft launch, but they will cap the logins to 500 people during this dry run period.

Not pre-selected. There is a CAP of 500 players* playing at any given moment on the tables for the first few days during the soft launch phase [this cap is to ease the testing of servers & player validation/geolocation I suppose]

Download the software when it becomes available in 2 hours & you can register & deposit - no CAP on depositors only on number of players.

NOTES
[1] * I'm unsure if the 500 number is the number of screen names or number of seats available
[2] I've assumed you're over 21, have an SSN, a US postal address & are located within the borders of NJ

It's the number of seats available at any one time

I'm so pumped for when you guys eventually announce NJCOOP!

I know things won't be like it use to be or how it is now for the ROW, but I gotta tell you I am beyond excited for this. Literally thinking of taking off work tonight.

It definitely is, I'm trying not to get to pumped, don't want to be let down :-/

Plus I don't win anymore, so I shouldn't be excited for another way to lose money

As long as you can watch live games from the lobby without signing in, I don't see why not.

just noticed pokerstars sells play money chips now, lol. $1.99 buys you 350k in play chips. The itch is real.

Source? I do not want to go off topic but just out of plain curiousity. Also will the 500 persons online max out and cause Pokerstars to crash today?

So the $600 deposit match bonus is the way to go at 4 for best bonus?

Hard to say considering that (I believe) we don't even know the actual details of the other bonus. Beyond the fact that it's for a lower percentage and "easier" to clear.
