WSOP NJ Rolls Out Big Promotion To Slow PokerStars In New Jersey

With PokerStars taking New Jersey by storm, WSOP NJ has a new, upgraded promotion in trying to attract new players and keep existing players on the site.

The promotion includes 100% match deposit bonuses and entrance into a variety of freerolls. With PokerStars NJ eating into traffic at competitors’ platforms, sites like WSOP NJ are pushing back in the short term with some great promotions.

This promotion is only available via

The new player bonus and freeroll

If you are a first-time depositor on WSOP NJ, and you sign up via using the promo code GALAXY, here is the promotion you will get:

  • A 100% match on a deposit up to $500 (public bonus caps at $400 maximum).
  • A ticket into an exclusive $500 freeroll scheduled for April 3rd.
  • Seven tickets into “Welcome Week” freerolls.

You can only get the extra $100 match and entry into the $500 freeroll by using the GALAXY bonus code.

For full details on the promotion, the bonus and all the freerolls, visit WSOP NJ’s website. The bonus is not a direct cash payout; rather, players convert the bonus to cash by playing at WSOP NJ. You must deposit a minimum of $10, and players have 60 days to clear the bonus.

Visit WSOP NJ and use bonus code GALAXY to claim your bonuses.

The existing player bonus and freerolls

If you’ve already deposited and have an account at WSOP NJ, you’re not out of luck, however.

WSOP NJ also has a promotion for existing players who want to reload their accounts. Once again, make sure to use the bonus code GALAXY:

  • A 100% match bonus on your deposit with a max bonus of $100 (i.e. if you deposit $100 deposit, you’ll receive a $100 clearable bonus)
  • A ticket into an exclusive $500 freeroll on April 3rd.

See WSOP NJ for more information and full details on the promotion..

Remember, you must use the bonus code GALAXY to get the special $100 bonus and entry to the freeroll.

Can WSOP NJ stop PokerStars’ in-roads?

Everyone has known for awhile that PokerStars’ New Jersey arrival was on its way, they just didn’t know exactly when until recently.

Competitors also knew that PokerStars NJ would likely eat into their traffic, and probably surpass them, at least in the short term.

Promotions like the one above are meant to “stem the tide” so to speak; 888, for its part, launched a “Spring Fever” promotion.

Competitors’ gameplan for the early weeks and months of PokerStars’ existence in New Jersey appears to be rolling out better and/or new promotions to stunt or prevent the loss of traffic.

If these promotions don’t do the trick, you might see more and even better promos. But, at the end of the day, New Jersey is a small market, and there is not a never-ending supply of promotional money that WSOP NJ and others can spend to attract and retain players.

That means further promotion efforts are not a guarantee. So, conventional wisdom says to take advantage of upgraded promotions like this, while they’re available.
