WSOP.com Lets Online Poker Players Go Heads Up For Leaderboard Prizes

Players at WSOP can win a share of thousands of dollars just for winning heads-up sit and go poker tournaments.

Heads up, mano a mano, one on one. From July 5 through August 1, WSOP.com is offering special leaderboard rewards to online poker players going for it against one other opponent.

Every week — for four qualifying weeks in a row — there will be $1,000 in WSOP.com online tournament tickets awarded to the top 10 leaderboard finishers.

The promotion begins during the waning days of the WSOP.com NJ Online Championships.

New opportunities to win each week

Prizes offered range from a $10 tournament ticket up to $270 in multiple tournament tickets for the player who reaches the top of the leaderboard each week.

Each week in July gives players a new opportunity to climb their way to the top and grab their share of the prizes.

One leaderboard point is awarded for every win, so the more wins you rack up, the higher you’ll rise up in the rankings.

Important details in the WSOP promotion

Leaderboard eligibility is based only on heads up sit & go tourneys. No other game types will qualify for this promotion.

Final leaderboard rankings will be given on the website within 24 hours of the end of the promo, with the top 10 places receiving the following prizes weekly:

  1. $270 (1 – $200 tournament ticket, 7 – $10 tournament tickets)
  2. $190 (1 – $100 tournament ticket, 9- $10 tournament tickets)
  3. $145 (1- $100 tournament ticket, 4 – $10 tournament tickets, 1 – $5 tournament ticket)
  4. $115 (1 – $100 tournament ticket, 1 – $10 tournament ticket, 1 – $5 tournament ticket)
  5. $90 (9 – $10 tournament tickets)
  6. $70 (7- $10 tournament tickets)
  7. $50 (5 – $10 tournament tickets)
  8. $35 (3 – $10 tournament tickets , 1 – $5 tournament ticket)
  9. $25 (2 – $10 tournament tickets, 1- $5 tournament tickets)
  10. $10 (1 – $10 tournament tickets)

Winners will receive confirmation emails within 48 hours of the end of the promo. Players can also check their ranking by contacting WSOP.com support at 1-855-218-6232.

Prizes will be awarded into the player’s account at the end of each scheduled week, after leaderboard positions are posted.

Is the latest WSOP.com promotion worth playing?

If your preferred format of play is heads lp, then this leaderboard promo is ideal. There also doesn’t appear to be a minimum buy-in requirement, meaning players can participate and win at all stakes.

This particular WSOP.com leaderboard promo differs in that the positions are awarded based on number of wins rather than just Action Player Points accrued, due to the one-on-one format.

If you’re a seasoned heads-up player, there’s a lot of potential to climb high in the leaderboards and score heaps of tournament tickets.

If you’re not very familiar with heads up and want to give it a try, this is also a good incentive to try it out, as you could score a few extra tournament tickets on top of your winnings, without needing a big bankroll.

TropicanaCasino.com Star Spangled Bonus Fires Up For Fourth Of July

TropicanaCasino.com gives you the chance to win a share of $10,000 in bonus money with two prize draws in one promotion.

TropicanaCasino.com gives you the chance to win share of $10,000 in bonus money with two prize draws in one promotion as part of its ongoing $150K Summer Heatwave promotional series.

From June 27 through July 4, players can win a share of $8,000 in bonus money on TropicanaCasino.com as part of its Star Spangled Bonus promo. There is an additional $2,000 in prizes for players wagering on the Tropicana mobile app.

Tropicana is one of several Atlantic City casinos that also offers NJ online gambling.

How to play the Star Spangled Bonus promo

There are two easy ways to get your share of a total of $10,000 in bonus money just for playing your favorite online casino games. No promotional codes necessary, and there is no need to opt in.

If you’re wagering on TropicanaCasino.com via your PC or Mac, simply play your favorite online casino games from June 27 through July 4.

Each time you wager $50 on 90 Ball Bingo, slots or on any other games, you’ll earn one entry into the $8,000 Bonus Money sweepstakes. Entries are capped at up to three per day.

On July 5, 110 players will be randomly selected to win the following Bonus Money Rewards:

  • 1: $1,000 Bonus Money
  • 4: $500 Bonus Money
  • 5: $200 Bonus Money
  • 10: $100 Bonus Money
  • 40: $50 Bonus Money
  • 50: $20 Bonus Money

If you’re playing the Tropicana Casino mobile app, the same rules and requirements still apply ($50 wagers on any games and entries are also capped at three per day). But the prize structure is different for the $2,000 Mobile Bonus Money prize draw:

  • 1: $500 Bonus Money
  • 4: $250 Bonus Money

The fine print

Any rewards from the Star Spangled Bonus promotion will be credited to your account within 24 hours of July 5.

Players must wager once through bonus money on any games on the TropicanaCasino.com website.

Is the Star Spangled Bonus promotion worth playing?

The prize structure is more generous when going for a share of $8,000 in bonus money if you’re playing on your computer. However, players may also earn up to three more entries for a share of $2,000 in bonus money by playing on the mobile app.

If you’re new to mobile casino gaming, this is a great incentive to give the app a go.

Prizes are mostly higher than the average entry-based online casino promotion, and begin at $20 in bonus money. In many drawing-based promos, a single top prize is $500 in bonus money.

For the TropicanaCasino.com Star Spangled Bonus Promo, four lucky players can win $500 in bonus money, with one very lucky top-prize winner getting their name drawn to win $1,000.

WSOP.com NJ Online Championships Guarantee $250,000 This Summer

WSOP New Jersey will guarantee a quarter of a million dollars in its Online Championships this June and July.

The WSOP.com Online Championships will offer New Jersey players daily opportunities for increased prize pools in a variety of games and formats from June 10 through July 10. In all, a quarter of a million dollars will be guaranteed over 93 tournaments.

Tournaments to suit every bankroll

With buy-ins ranging from $5 to $500 and multiple tournaments offered daily, just about any tournament player can take part in the WSOP.com Online Championships.

There is an impressive roster of events to choose from. Games and formats include pot-limit Omaha, 6-max, turbos, deep stacks and multiple freezeouts, in addition to many rebuy/add-on and re-entry tourneys.

A small sampling of the upcoming tournaments include:

  • The $250 Guaranteed Online Championships Event #28 [$5 + $5 Knockout] on June 19.
  • The $3,500 Guaranteed PLO Online Championships Event #47 with a buy-in of $100 on June 25.
  • The $20,000 Guaranteed Online Championships Event #88 [High Roller, Re-entry] with a $500 buy-in on July 9.

The leaderboard for the WSOP online events

The Online Championships will have a leaderboard tracking the overall performance of players competing in these tournaments. The player finishing at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the Online Championships will win the WSOP.com Online Championships ring.

Prizes are non-transferable and the ring prize is not exchangeable for cash or other compensation — including but not limited to tournament tickets and FPP’s. The estimated retail value of the ring is $1,000.

Are the WSOP.com Online Championships worth playing?

Due to the increased prize pools and wide range of available buy ins and tournament formats, the series is a good potential opportunity for multi-table tournament grinders at all levels.

With the increased popularity of poker variants such as PLO and formats such as knockout tournaments, WSOP.com NJ has been responding to players looking to expand their horizons beyond online no-limit hold’em.

While prize pools aren’t quite as rich as the recent Pokerstars New Jersey version of the Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP), there are more tournaments and formats available. That could make the WSOP series more appealing to players already familiar with these different formats or just looking to try them out.

The WSOP.com Online Championships will also go for a month, offering multiple opportunities to play on a daily basis and give players the chance to earn that coveted championship ring.

Report: North Jersey Referendum Could Cost Atlantic City Four Casinos

A recent report from Fitch Ratings said that up to four Atlanic City casinos could closes if voters authorize casinos in North Jersey.

An upcoming November ballot referendum that would allow New Jersey voters to decide if casino gaming expands beyond Atlantic City into the northern part of the state could have the unintended consequence of up to four casino closures. That comes from a recent report from Fitch Ratings.

While increased competition from nearby states such as New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut has been cited as a major factor in Atlantic City’s decline over the last decade, further lost revenue for the embattled city could come from within New Jersey itself.

Increased competition from within NJ

Atlantic City is currently down to eight casinos, after losing four in recent years. Should the referendum pass, proposed locations for up to two new casinos would be the Meadowlands Racetrack and the American Dream complex, both in East Rutherford, and in Jersey City as well.

Right now, polls show voters are split on whether to allow the North Jersey casinos.

Jeff Gural, who runs the Meadowlands and has partnered with Hard Rock International Inc. for the casino proposal, said 14.6 million people live within 50 miles of his track.

“I think we’d do great,” he said. “We have the best location for a casino in all of America.”

The Jersey City proposal comes from developer Paul Fireman, who has not publicly disclosed information on his estimated $4 to $5 billion project.

AC casinos at risk

According to Fitch Ratings, casinos most susceptible to closure from potential new in-state competition are Trump Taj Mahal, Resorts Casino and Golden Nugget.

Fitch adds an estimated 25% decline in Atlantic City’s gross gaming revenue would negate any operating profit before factoring in the management fees of Golden Nugget, the most profitable among those three.

Fitch speculates Bally’s would be the most likely fourth closure. Caesars Entertainment closed down the Showboat Casino in 2014 although it was marginally profitable. Bally’s is currently the lowest-performing property among Caesars’ three remaining Atlantic City casinos.

Proposal attempts to minimize harmful impact to Atlantic City

Despite the expected negative effects more casino closures would have on Atlantic City, primarily in the form of further job losses, some concessions have been made in what would seem to be an attempt to recognize and minimize further harm to Atlantic City’s economy.

The current proposal gives Atlantic City operators priority in the application process and also includes a revenue share provision with Atlantic City.

There is speculation among financial analysts that the surviving properties could benefit from the closures and see performance improve, echoing what occurred after the four Atlantic City casino closures during 2014. Figures for 2015 showed an average revenue increase of just over 5%, which also factors in NJ online gambling revenue.

Peter Trombetta, an analyst with Moody’s Investors Service, believes the North Jersey casinos would do well, but not without consequences to others in the region. While potential harm to Atlantic City is the most pressing concern within the state, the new casinos could potentially also lure customers away from casinos in Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut and possibly even as far south as Maryland.
