New Jersey online poker players are in for a treat as PokerStars announces one of their highlight tournament series. The 2022 PokerStars NJSCOOP is taking place March 25 to April 11.

The operator’s Spring Championship of Online Poker will have $1 million in guaranteed prizes and include 115 events for  Garden State poker players. Those physically located in the state can participate.

PokerStars NJSCOOP 2022 has community ‘excited and engaged’

PokerStars NJ players certainly will not have any shortage of events over the next few weeks.

PokerStars ambassador Jennifer Shahade recently shared her thoughts on the upcoming series.

“It’s so exciting to see more SCOOP events than ever on the PokerStars calendar for this year’s Spring Championship,”  Shahade said. “The community gets so excited and engaged when SCOOP comes around, and it’s always been perceived as being one of the most prestigious online tournaments around the world, so to have leaderboards and trophies, and all kinds of ranges of events in the US just makes it so much more fun, and competitive!”

Buy-ins for all bankroll sizes

Garden State online poker players will find this year’s  NJSCOOP includes buy-ins ranging from  $10 and up to $1,000. And if that is a little out of the bankroll, there are satellites and freerolls each day.

During the NJSCOOP, the site is offering depositor freerolls and satellites launching for just $1. The operator is offering up $16,000 worth of Main Event seats through depositor freerolls.

PokerStars is also offering $3 spin & go tournaments in which players can win a seat into the $300 Main Event.

For players who don’t cash in an event they play, PokerStars is offering second chance tickets. Players will receive a second chance ticket to play in remaining SCOOP tournaments.

Other Freerolls include:

  • $500 daily March 28- April 3
  • $1,000 daily April 4- 11

PokerStars NJ updates reward system

PokerStars in New Jersey now has an updated rewards system in which players can earn bonuses. Rebecca McAdam, of PokerStars public relations, says the new program will “give players more than ever before for playing with us.”

“We’ve been working hard to give our players the best program and from listening to community feedback, we know that value and transparency are key, so we’re very happy to launch a program that has truly been built with this at its heart,” McAdam said.

Players are already enjoying what the new reward system has to offer.

The new reward system is easier to understand and allows for players to gain more value.

This includes:

  • Progress bars to show upgrades to next levels
  • Chest levels with fixed rewards
  • Rewards starting at 15% up to 33% bonus back
  • Bonuses earned through cash, tournament and spin & go buy-ins

The SCOOP series along with the new reward system will be available in Pennsylvania and Michigan as will. However, tournament guarantees may vary per state.
