PokerStars is not slowing down in its bid to dominate the poker market in Pennsylvania and New Jersey which are two of its latest ventures. To spice its already mind-blowing offerings in both states, the world-renowned poker operator will be bringing it very popular Bounty Builder Series to the United States. As such, as from February 20 to March 1, poker players in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be able to battle it out in the amazing knockout poker format.
As expected of any PokerStars event, the Bounty Builder Series is set to feature some amazing prizes and action-packed games. For instance, in the Keystone State, FOX Bet and PokerStars will be offering a $500,000 guarantee which will include a total of 32 progressive knockout (PKO) events. The Main Event which is a $300 buy-in events will go down on March 1 and will feature a $100,000 guarantee. In New Jersey, the tournament series will feature a $300,000 guarantee. The Keystone State has a much larger population of poker players hence the larger guarantees.
Even though it is currently the only poker operator in Pennsylvania, PokerStars has remained on its toes by delivering great gaming experience to its customers. This hard work has spilled over to New Jersey where the company is also striving to leave a mark.
The Exciting Twist
The bounty builder tournaments are a great way for the companies to improve engagement by adding more fun to the poker games. These bounties allow every single player to stand a chance of winning cash prizes for each and every opponent that they will manage to eliminate.
With the PKO format, the very interesting twist is that the winner will not get to keep all of the bounty. That is, half of the winnings are added to his own bounty which means that as the games progress the winners who proceed become even bigger targets as their bounties grow bigger in value.
Players in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be able to enjoy more or less the same gaming experiences with the buy-ins ranging between a$10 to $750. Satellites will start from as low as $1 for a number of events.
