How the Golden Button Challenge works
To get started, simply log into a valid PokerStars NJ account. Proceed to the Challenges Window, and opt into the Challenge.
Then, start playing. Make sure to sit at a table with at least four players.
Every time you get dealt an ace, pay attention. If you can win the hand, you’ll match a regular ace on the puzzle.
Pay special attention to the game if you’re dealt an ace on the button. A winning hand from that position will match one of the golden aces on your puzzle.
Complete the challenge, and you’re guaranteed a win. You will receive a random cash prize of up to $20,000.
The best part is that these prizes come with absolutely no playthrough requirement. You will be able to keep your winnings the instant you receive them.
The fine print on the Golden Button Challenge
The Golden Button Challenge is currently running on PokerStars NJ. It will continue as an active promotion until Feb. 17.
The challenge will come with a minimum buy-in level. However, that level will be based on your historical gameplay and activity.
You must opt into the challenge before you begin playing. Any hands played before then won’t count toward the puzzle.
You can only receive a maximum of one puzzle piece per hand. The prize will only release once you complete the entire challenge.
However, there’s not much else to this promotion. Go check it out as soon as you can.
Enough about NJ; when is PokerStars heading to PA?
So far, there is nothing to indicate a change to the previous timeframe. PokerStars has its approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in hand and looks to launch sometime in the next couple of months.
Unfortunately, the recent Department of Justice opinion on the Wire Act has thrown the entire industry off its game. The prevailing wisdom right now is that all interested parties should wait to see how the DOJ instructs its prosecutors to proceed.
Until that happens, it seems unlikely that PokerStars will launch in PA, regardless of any other challenges it might have. But, for right now, there’s no reason to panic. PokerStars will be coming to PA soon enough.
