PokerStars players in New Jersey will see the return of the online poker New Jersey Classic later in October.

New Jersey online casino gamblers can take part in the event, starting this month, along with poker players in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Like Pennsyl-MANIA and the Michigan Classic, the New Jersey event has a $300 buy-in and commences on Oct. 24. The New Jersey Classic offers a guaranteed $100,000 prize pool. The guarantee in Michigan is $250,000. It’s $350,000 in Pennsylvania.

Online poker satellite tournaments, starting from just $15, began Tuesday. Contestants can win their way to the events through $3 Spin & Go’s; by depositing $30 to win entry to a depositor freeroll on Oct. 24, with $15,000 in seats up for grabs; and through a $300 deposit match offer which also awards tickets (Oct. 12-13 in New Jersey and Michigan and Oct. 12-19 in Pennsylvania).

The New Jersey Classic, in addition to the Michigan and Pennsylvania events, follows the PokerStars Championship of Online Poker. In those three states, players were awarded a combined $5.27 million.

The New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOOP) from PokerStars ran from Sept. 10 to Sept. 27. It had a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million prize pool over at least 60 events for New Jersey players.

Other NJ PokerStars Events

Other PokerStars events in 2021 have included the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker, which was conducted from Aug. 22 through Sept. 15. It featured a $100 million guarantee, the largest in the series. PokerStars also held a big Summer Stacks event during June in New Jersey.
