More Money Heading to Partypoker Players As Cashback and Magic Cards Promotions Extended

Partypoker's Boosted Cashback and Magic Cards promotions are offering players have now been extended to July 18.

Partypoker recently announced some extra opportunities at cashback for the site’s players. The Boosted Cashback and Magic Cards promotions have now been extended to July 18.

The features allow players to win cashback and other special prizes. The extension comes after more than 14,000 players scored additional prizes as part of the promotions.

That includes some serious cashback. More than 12,000 players who wouldn’t normally receive payments have earned 10% extra cashback since the promotion began.

Details of partypoker’s Boosted Cashback

The recent launch of Boosted Cashback has been popular with cash game players. Players earn 10% extra for every 0.1 cashback point earned. 

Two players have even earned more than $1,000 extra as a result. More than 250 players have received $100 or more and another 560 players have received at least $50

In June, partypoker enhanced Boosted Cashback to make the offer even more lucrative for players.  All players need to do is earn 0.1 cashback point or more in a day on any game type.

Partypoker then pays 10% extra cashback on all of their cash game and fastforward rake.

Players would usually be required to earn 25 cashback points to earn 20% cashback. Because of the enhancements, thousands of players who don’t usually earn cashback now qualify.

Players earn one point for every $1 in rake they generate from cash games and fastforward games. They also earn 0.1 points for every $0.10 in rake they generate. 

“It’s great partypoker realizes every player is an important player,” Team partypoker’s Patrick Leonard said in a news release. “Whether you play once a week, three days a week, or five days a week, we value everyone, so everyone who rakes just $0.10 in a day can now enjoy Boosted Cashback.”

Magic Cards also extended

Partypoker has also extended the Magic Cards promotion to July 18. The site announced recently that the maximum cash prize would be increased from $500 to $1,000.

Magic Cards allow players to go on a poker journey and earn daily picks. Players can use their daily pick to choose one of four cards, which reveal instant prizes including:

  • cash
  • tournament tickets
  • Bonuses
  • freeroll entries

Cash game and fastforward players can currently earn up to five picks per day. They also earn an extra pick for every cashback point they earn from those games.

Partypoker launches ‘fastforward’ mobile, doubles New Year Rush promotion

Partypoker recently released its new fastforward mobile poker experience.

It’s been a busy start to the new year for partypoker. The company has launched a new mobile experience and also upped the ante on its New Year Rush promotion.

This should be good news to cash game players with some quick-paced action and a chance at some nice rewards.

Partypoker adds quickfire card-playing mobile experience

As part of its high-tech mobile experience efforts, partypoker recently launched its new quickfire “fastforward” cash games. The release becomes the next phase in the company’s effort to deliver an engaging and improved mobile experience.

This also following the release of SPINS in November. Players can now play fastforward games in portrait mode across iOS and Android to enable single-handed play. This brings the games in line with SPINS.

“This app brings poker on your phone into the modern age,” partypoker Team Online’s Jaime Staples said.

“The experience of just being able to play with one finger is something I have never had the chance to experience before. It’s so simple and intuitive. It’s by far the best poker app I have played on my phone. So simple to use and fun!”

The update also includes an improved fastforward games lobby, available in carousel or tiled view. This option makes it easier for players to select their game of choice. Players can also now play SPINS and fastforward simultaneously, switching seamlessly between the two.

More Diamonds in mobile additions

Partypoker also recently introduced the “Diamonds” in-game currency, which now is included in fastforward. Diamonds are earned based on the number of hands played and spent on in-game benefits including:

  • bubble chat
  • emojis
  • all-in animations

Players on mobile can also now try out similar features. The company believes it’s created a richer gaming experience with a new suite of graphics, sounds and animations.

Partypoker’s mobile product overhaul continues to serve as a major company focus. The operator will seek feedback from the poker community as it looks to further improve the product. The platform has already been tested by a select group of players in beta mode, including various members of Team partypoker.

 “This app changes the poker experience for the user in a big way,” Team Online member Jeff Gross said.

“Mobile poker tech has been archaic, and this makes you really say ‘wow’ when you play it. Refreshing and fun, the biggest shake-up in poker I have seen in a long time.”

Doubling down on partypoker promotion – to $200,000

In other partypoker news, players can now claim their share of $200,000 in prizes as part of the site’s “New Year Rush” promotion. The “Rush” runs through Feb. 2 with the campaign split into four weekly promotional periods.

Players around the world have a shot to claim one of 250,000 cash prizes.

After a nice reaction from players, the weekly prize pool has now been doubled from the opening week. All prizes were snapped up by players early. This increase should provide even more incentive for players to take part.

To be eligible for a daily prize, players simply need to opt in via the partypoker client. Players then need to earn a minimum of 0.2 points at any real money poker table. 

Prizes include instant cash rewards from $0.50 to $500. ”Race points” can also be revealed letting players climb weekly $10,000 leaderboards.

Prizes are awarded at random according to players earning the following in a weekly period:

  • 0.2 points to unlock a first card
  • 1.5 points to unlock a second card
  • 3 points to unlock a third card

After the first three cards are claimed, players can unlock additional cards for every 1.5 points earned at the tables. The promotion resets each week. 

“New Year Rush is a great way to bring in the new year,” Staples said. “It gives you another reason to get out there and play, with leaderboards offering big prizes to fight for. I love these additional challenges in poker, and they have always motivated me to play hard.”

How Global Poker Heads-Up SnGs Could Mean More Money In Your Pocket

One of the most crucial moments in a poker tournament is the heads-up battle at the end. In that spirit, Global Poker has unveiled a new game variant – Heads-Up Sit N’ Gos, or heads-up SnGs.

The update comes due to the fact that Global Poker has been receiving multiple requests for heads-up poker from its player pool. Heads-up poker exists in a sort of limbo for many tournament players.

On the one hand, tournament players often spend the least amount of time practicing their heads-up poker play. Ironically, however, heads-up play can often generate positive expected value with regard to pay jumps at the end of the tournament. 

So, Global Poker’s addition of heads-up poker play is a welcome addition. It will allow players to develop an often overlooked part of their game.

How to play Global Poker’s Heads-up SnGs

Heads-up SnGs are the purest form of 1-on-1 battles for poker players. Each player begins with the same amount of chips, and play proceeds like a normal tournament.

Blinds increase every few minutes, and the game continues until one player has all the chips in play. Unsurprisingly, the payouts are for the victors only.

So, Global Poker’s Heads-Up Sit N’ Gos afford players the option to learn how to play mano e mano from the comfort of their living rooms. As a result, players can develop the skills to make that big pay day jump and take down the hardware.

Find these new tournaments by visiting Global Poker’s Sit-n-Go tab. A quick search should display all the available game options.

Players can choose from a wide variety of buy-in options. Heads-up battles with buy-ins as high as SC$53.50 are available.

For those who might still feel a bit nervous, Global Poker is also offering heads-up SnGs for Gold Coins players. This second currency costs nothing, but will allow players to test their games in a safe environment. 

Eat a hoagie with me

For the rest of July, I will be testing my own skills in the heads-up arena. Every Wednesday night, I will be streaming heads up battles on Global Poker through my Twitch stream.

Tune in to watch and learn how the site works. Feel free to ask any questions in chat about the site and games.

As a bonus, I will be giving away free $weeps Cash prizes to followers of the channel that are valid for play on Global Poker’s sister site, Chumba Casino.

Or, if you are brazen enough, you can challenge “ EataHoagie “ to an online heads-up match. Of course, I will stream your eventual defeat, too. See you then!

What PartyPoker NJ’s Click And Win Means For Your Sunday Plans

Online poker players around the world know that Sunday means hours of grinding for the week’s best prize pools. Now, Party Poker NJ is adding a little bonus to the first day of the week. Every Sunday, you can “Click and Win.”

How Click and WIn works

After you log in, proceed to the promotions section to opt in. From there, click your card to reveal your personal prize.

Prizes include casino bonuses, poker reload bonuses, and slot prizes for selected players. Each click card is a winner.

After you win, the bonus will appear in your account. Claim it within three days or it goes away.

One other thing to bear in mind about Click and Win is the playthrough requirement. Players must wager 35 times the amount of the prize in order to release it.

Furthermore, they will only have 3 days to do it. So, make sure to set aside some time if you plan to redeem this bonus.

Nevertheless, it’s free money that PartyPoker is leaving on the ground for you. Make sure to pick it up, if you can.

Partypoker NJ is the place to be on Sundays

Sundays in New Jersey are quite underrated. However, on Partypoker NJ, there is always something to do.

For one thing, the site offers a $55 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament at 4 p.m. This tournament, dubbed the Sunday Starter, carries a $3,000 guarantee.

The Sunday Starter is a nice warm up tournament for the big event. Each Sunday, PartyPoker NJ hosts a weekly $215 clash that guarantees a prizepool of $35,000. 

Finally, Party Poker NJ is offering a $400 super satellite to the Borgata Summer Open Championship. Each Sunday, this 7:40 p.m. satellite will send lucky winners to the big dance in Atlantic City.

The Borgata Summer Open Championship is a $2,700 buy-in tournament with a $1 million guaranteed prizepool. That kind of guarantee means that lifechanging money is going in someone’s pocket at Borgata. 

Play on Sundays at PartyPoker NJ, and it could be yours!

How Global Poker Grand Slam Could Be Your Ticket To The All-Star Game

Baseball is America’s pastime. Global Poker is one of the most widely available online poker sites in the US. So, it makes sense that Global Poker is sending players on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the MLB All-Star Game in the Global Poker Grand Slam Tournament.

The Grand Slam Tournament is a feeder series that will put you in the running for a terrific prize package. The series is winding down, but there is still a full weekend of great opportunities ahead of us.

How to participate in the Global Poker Grand Slam Tournament

Here’s how it works.

Players can compete in one of the tournaments specific to the promotion. For every tournament they enter, Global Poker will award an entry into the Tournament Series draw.

This draw will award 3 prize packages to the 2019 MLB All-Star Game weekend. Each package contains the following:

  • Tickets to the four main events at Progressive Field in Cleveland
    • All-Star Celebrity Softball Game – July 7
    • All-Star Futures Game (minor league players) – July 7
    • Home Run Derby – July 8
    • All-Star Game – July 9
  • Three nights’ accommodation for the nights of July 7 – 9
    • Check-in on July 7
    • Check-out on July 10

Bear in mind, there are numerous other attractions during All-Star weekend. The package will also give winners the ability to take part in concerts, commemorative events, and the interactive experience known as Play Ball Park.

As is often the case with Global Poker, there are opportunities to play using either one of their currencies. There are tournaments for both Gold Coins and $weeps Cash.

At present, there are 11 tournaments remaining to play – 6 for $weeps Cash and 5 for Gold Coins. Each tournament will award an entry to the draw to each participant.

Of course, these tournaments are still bona fide tournaments, too. In fact, each one carries a very tasty guarantee, too.

Here’s the schedule for the remaining tournaments:

$weeps Cash

Grand Slam 14: NLHE GC 1,500,000 Guaranteed [1R1A, Turbo]June 239:30 PMGC11,000

Other ways to qualify for the Tournament Series draw

There is also another way to throw one’s hat in the ring for one of the All-Star Game packages. In fact, players just have to play in ring games to earn an entry into the Tournament Series draw.

Players must only play 1,500 hands before the end of the promotion on July 23. Hands in both currencies qualify.

So, if it wasn’t clear before, it is possible to win an entry into the prize drawing for Gold Coins only. Even if a player has lost all their $weeps Cash at one time or another, they can still play for a chance to see the best in Major League Baseball.

In short, for baseball fans, Global Poker is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It’s not too late to qualify, so don’t miss out this weekend!

NJSCOOP Reaching A Fever Pitch This Weekend

The NJSCOOP Main Events

NJSCOOP has a unique two-tiered system of tournaments to allow play from every level of poker player. So, each event is a pair of tournaments that are designated High and Low.

NJSCOOP’s Main Event is no different. There are two awesome tournaments that bear the name of the top tournament in this series.

The High event is a whopper. The $500 buy-in event will run on Sunday, May 19 at 5:00 p.m. There is a mouth-watering $130,000 guaranteed prizepool with the primo tournament.

For those on a budget, the Low main event only costs $50 to enter. However, players who choose to throw their hats in the ring will compete for at least $40,000. The Low tournament will kick at the same time as the High – 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The other NLHE NJSCOOP events remaining

For those looking for something smaller or a supplement to the main events, there are plenty of other no-limit hold’em events available.

Perhaps the most intriguing of the remaining tournaments is the aptly-named Final Weekend Kickoff. This pair of contests will get things started on the last Saturday at 6:00 p.m.

The High event for the kickoff is a $200 buy-in collision. There will be $17,500 guaranteed in the prizepool, ensuring that there’s plenty to smile about.

The Low event will run concurrently with a scant $20 buy-in. Still, players will be able to compete for $7,500 in this tournament – not too shabby for such a cheap entry fee.

There is also the NJSCOOP Wrap-up that should send everyone out with a smile on their faces. The High and Low iterations of this event are $100 and $10 to enter, respectively. However, they have extremely appealing guarantees, with the High drawing $18,000 and the Low $5,000.

The other other NJSCOOP events remaining

If no-limit hold’em is not your cup of tea, don’t worry. There are still opportunities for players with other games in mind.

The next most popular game after hold’em is likely pot-limit Omaha. So, it figures that any tournament series worth its salt would have some great Omaha events.

NJSCOOP doesn’t disappoint, even on the final weekend. There are a pair of PLO tournaments that will run at the same time on Sunday, May 19, at 8:00 p.m.

The two tournaments come with buy-ins of $150 and $15. The High event will have $12,500 as a guaranteed prizepool, and the Low will carry $2,000. Since Omaha players tend to be a more specialized group, this pair of contests should have certain PokerStars patrons licking their chops.

There is also a mixed event a few hours earlier on that same day. The progressive KO tournaments will require entry fees of $200 or $20. Each tournament will have quite a healthy guarantee, with $14,000 and $4,000, respectively.

Finally, there is also a Stud Hi/Lo event yet to be played. While this game is a bit more esoteric, the combined guarantees of $6,500 are as mainstream as they come.

So, if you were concerned about missing the NJSCOOP this year, never fear – there’s still time. Make sure to check out all the great action this year.

4 Ways You Can Celebrate PokerStars’ 200 Billionth Hand

Online poker giant PokerStars is about to deal its 200 billionth hand of poker. To commemorate the occasion, Stars is offering four different ways for players to celebrate with them.

200 billion is almost too big a number to comprehend. To give some context, the Milky Way galaxy contains roughly 250 billion stars, including our sun.

So, to have dealt that many hands of poker is quite the achievement. Here are the four ways that PokerStars is marking the occasion.

PokerStars’ 200 billionth hand itself

Naturally, players who sit for Hand #200,000,000,000 are going to be handsomely rewarded. So, because a round number deserves another round number, each player seated for the milestone hand will receive $10,000.

It does not matter the outcome of the hand. Even players who fold preflop will still receive their five-digit bonus.

Needless to say, players should keep an eye on their hand counters. The lucky hand is not one anyone wants to miss.

Cash Game Surprises

However, there’s not just one lucky hand at PokerStars. In fact, during select hours between now and April 30, there will be one lucky hand per hour.

All players must do is play at a table between 7:00 p.m. and midnight Eastern. At some point during each hour, Stars will drop a reward chest onto a random active table.

The chest will contain a reward worth 20 times the big blind at that table. So, some players will find themselves hundreds or thousands of dollars richer instantly.

There is no opt-in for this promotion. Players must simply be seated during that time.

The one caveat is that heads-up tables are not eligible for the drops. So, consider your game selection if you want to remain active in the promotion.

Milestone tournaments

If cash games aren’t your thing, don’t worry. PokerStars is doing random drops in various tournaments, too.

During select tournaments, Stars will randomly select a table to receive a free tournament ticket. Each player at that table will receive a tournament ticket of equal value to the buy-in of that tournament.

So, for instance, a player in the Sunday Special could potentially receive a $200 tournament ticket. Effectively, players are getting a BOGO deal for the tournament they’re playing.

The milestone tournaments in which these drops will occur are:

  • Sunday tournaments
    • $10 Sunday Storm
    • $200 Sunday Special
    • $75 Sunday Supersonic
  • Daily tournaments
    • The Big $20
    • $5 KO Fever
    • The Hot $20

Daily Rewards

Finally, if playing is not your thing, you can still benefit from the celebration. PokerStars is giving away thousands of dollars every day through random pop-up rewards.

The only requirement is that you must play a single hand of poker at some point between now and May 1. That’s it – there’s no other requirement.

In response, you will be eligible to receive a rewards chest worth up to $2,000 in your account – instantly. Potentially, you could win a chest each day of the promotion, so make sure to log in at least once a day during the next couple of weeks.

In addition, the very first chest you win will come with an added bonus. There will be a ticket to a special $10,000 Mega Freeroll inside.

The Mega Freeroll will run on May 1 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. The only people between you and a share of $10,000 will be other chest recipients.

So, PokerStars is celebrating 200 billion hands in grand style. Make sure you check it out – money might just appear in front of you.

Three Ways To Qualify For PokerStars’ Final Big Game

The annual showcase of buzzer beaters and upsets, March Madness, is drawing to a close. In recognition, PokerStars NJ is offering a chance at a $50k guaranteed prizepool in the Final Big Game tournament.

This tournament will run on April 7 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern. It will be a no-limit hold’em freezeout with a $50 buy-in.

Compared to some of PokerStars’ other tournaments, a $50,000 guarantee might seem a bit ho-hum. However, the winner of this tournament might be looking at a five-digit score.

It’s easy to get a ticket for the Final Big Game

One of the best parts about the Final Big Game is how accessible it is. Players can receive tickets for almost nothing – literally.

The first and most obvious way to receive a ticket is to deposit with the proper promotional code. Simply deposit $250 or more and use promo code FINAL to receive a $50 ticket to the Final Big Game – completely free. This code will be valid and active all the way through late registration for the tournament.

If that avenue isn’t appealing, then players can also acquire a ticket through a sports betting deposit. All they must do is wager $500 on basketball games of any type before the NCAA final game begins, and a free ticket will be on its way.

If both options remain unpalatable, a player can possibly win a ticket for free. They simply must play in the Final Big Game Depositors Freeroll.

To enter, a player must deposit $10 or more and use promotional code FREEROLL. The freeroll, which will run two hours before the actual tournament, will award 40 free seats to the tournament.

Finally, there are lower-cost satellites running to allow players into the tournament. So, there are a multitude of ways to punch one’s ticket to the Final Big Game.

How to win a Ship It package

Tournaments that award Ship It packages will vary in terms of buy-in and number of packages awarded. However, it is possible to win a package with just SC$1.

Players will be able to qualify for this package beginning March 25. The qualifying rounds will run until April 21.

In addition, Global Poker will host a group of pop-up freerolls on March 23. At random times that day, a notification about a Caribbean Poker Cruise Pop-Up Freeroll will pop up in the lobby. Winners of these tournaments will punch their tickets without any purchase whatsoever.

What’s in the Ship It package?

Each winner will receive a prize package during this event that will have tons of goodies to occupy them. Global Poker has taken care of all the arrangements to make this trip a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

Each Ship It package includes:

  • A seven-night stay in an ocean-view cabin (with balcony) 
  • Food, beverages and entertainment for two, which includes a cocktail party to welcome onboard players 
  • $500 for travel expenses
  • $490 for onboard tournament buy-ins
  • Poker coaching sessions
  • Poker seminar

Additionally, there are other great amenities on the Liberty of the Seas for poker and non-poker players alike. The cruise offers rock climbing, ice skating, a wave pool and waterslides to get the blood pumping.

Global Poker has teamed up with Card Player Cruises to bring this opportunity to its players. The cruise will depart from Galveston, Texas, on Sunday, May 5, and return Sunday, May 12.

The ship will travel to various destinations throughout the Caribbean Sea. Ports of call include:

  • Cozumel, Mexico
  • George Town, Grand Cayman
  • Kingston, Jamaica

Between those destinations, there will be some terrific on-board poker action. Global Poker will host numerous ring games and tournaments for its attendees, along with events specific to the poker players on the ship.

There are also numerous nighttime onboard activities, from cocktail hours to pool parties. The ship also features performances of Broadway classics, like Cats, Grease and Mamma Mia!

Finally, there are three excellent restaurants from which to choose each meal selection. Chops Grille serves steaks, Giovanni’s Table has excellent Italian fare, and Johnny Rockets is the place to get a burger. There is also a wine bar onboard.

So, there’s really no reason to miss out on the action. With just a bit of rungood, anyone could find themselves sailing the open seas.
