Bonuses and satellites

A little early bird bonus is also available for players participating in trophy events. According to the BetMGM Poker website;

“All TROPHY events will feature Early Bird Registration – meaning players registered at the start of the event will receive 100% rake back!”

If the buy-ins for some of these events are too expensive for your bankroll, BetMGM is offering satellite events with buy-ins starting at $5. Additionally, players who participate in any $100 tournament will qualify for the Pick a Card promotion, which gives players a daily chance to win a $1,000 championship ticket.

Additional Pick A Card prizes include:

  • $5 tournament ticket
  • 20 tournament ticket
  • $100 tournament ticket

The series will also take place in Pennsylvania and Michigan, but will play independent from the New Jersey series. Guarantees may differ per state.
