How to get a seat in BetMGM Summer Classic series
To join in on the games, players must be located in the borders of New Jersey. The series will also be offered to Pennsylvania and Michigan players as well, but the player pools aren’t combined.
Each state hosts its own independent online series each month. All three markets are “ringed-in” environments, meaning players only compete with others within that state. Guarantees differ per state.
In the Garden State, players have the option of entering the events on either BetMGM, partypoker or Borgata NJ poker.
Weekly $30,000 tournament
Each Sunday BetMGM NJ pitches out one of the best deals of the week. The popular Sunday $30,000 guaranteed tournament will also run its course and is available for players in New Jersey. The event has a 5 p.m. (ET) start time with a $215 buy-in and starting chips of 75,000.
Late registration: re-entries allowed until the end of Level 15
