Re: PokerStars NJ - Official Thread

Just read on OPR that NJDGE is in talks with a "Merge" of Stars NJ and Stars UK. Let me first state it will not be a merger. Due to current laws in NJ they will be offering Stars UK players the option to sign up to a Stars NJ account or play on their current site. Also this option will not be given to NJ residents as we are forced to play on servers located in the state. It would be one thing if they A. Merged the pools completely or B. Gave us access to Row pool but to say the hell with us and invite a bunch of Row regs to come and kill our liquidity even more without giving us the option is down right ridiculous.

They are on PSNJ, it's just PS giving us a nice 'City Tour' through NJ with these names *yawn*

On a side note, imagine driving to Camden for a $5 rebuy, risking your life for the $5 MTT.

I mean, it may not be fair to us.. But I don't think too many regs will see the value in joining the PSNJ market vs the PSUK market. PSUK should/will have the bigger guarantees and the bigger buy-ins. Atleast we will get a little larger player pool and maybe it will convince others to travel to NJ to play more often.

ROW has Micromillions starting very soon....

We have the city of NJ tours. It might spark some interest from low level players or other interested people to join the site and play.

I doubt it. I have yet to see a Pokerstars NJ tv commercial, so not sure how these players would know to sign up.

Has Dylan or anyone else clarified who is eligible for the deposit bonuses mentioned earlier?

I don't think this series will spark low level player's interest.. I think this is too high of stakes to really generate interest in 'low level players'.

NJ is not a micro stakes market. This has been discussed tons previously so no need to go into it again but there wont, and shouldnt be, micro stakes series.

Dylan, I have a quick StarsCoin Reward Challenge question. It looks like I can start it any time up until the end of 7/31/16. Regardless of when I start, though, I get a full 21 days to complete it, correct? For example, if I start at the end of 7/31/16, I would have until the end of 8/21/16 to complete, correct? Thanks!

We have run PokerStars NJ television commercials in the past.

In regards to the Mega Bonus promotion that was referenced above, eligible players will have already been contacted. As someone else pointed out, while most promotions are 'global' in that anyone can participate, we also run targeted offers exclusive to various player segments. If you have any doubts about your eligibility, you can always contact Support to make sure.

Correct. Your "Days to complete" starts from the time you start your challenge, and you have until the end of the month to start.

Regards,
Dylan

I'm at 1350 with 10 days to go. I will make this with days to spare. I only have to make 65 per day I'm currently earning +50 per session. I just wish I could play more than a session each night.

Not having PM privileges means he can't PM you either.

Can a truck driver play on pokerstars while passing through New Jersey? If so, how do you cash out if you win?

Dylan,

Any chance of a promo geared towards getting ZOOM running again?

I heard it ran during the "Cardhunt" and then died shortly thereafter...

Thanks!

How are you going to deposit? You can withdraw using the same method.

Oh Ok, Have not played since 4/15/11 and when I would cash out then they were sending a check.

I would deposit using my bank card if it will let me. The funds go back on that card?

Can you withdraw from a B&M?

You can use e-check/ACH/online banking transfer, and you can cash out using your bank credentials as well (routing number/account number).

PokerStars has a partnership with Resorts Casino in AC for B&M cash withdraws.

Nothing planned at the moment regarding ZOOM. However, we are currently running a Cash Game Happy Hours promotion where you'll earn 50% more VPPs from 5pm-6pm and 11pm-midnight until August 7th.

Hope that's some consolation.

Dylan

So if I'm eligible for the mega-40, that means... that I suck.
Oh well. I picked up a $2000 bonus and when the box popped up, I yelled "holy ****" and almost fell out of my chair.
