Cracked & Busted
If you’ve ever had pocket Aces cracked, or felt the pain of a full boat sunk on the river, you’ll appreciate the new Cracked and Busted promo at WSOP NJ. Players must opt-in to this promotion to earn the respective rewards. From there, all January long, if a player’s Aces are cracked or full house loses to a better hand on the river (hand must reach showdown to qualify), they will receive an online poker bonus “equal to the minimum buy in for the Hold’em cash game table” they were playing at the time.
App Two-A-Days for Mobile Poker Players
All month long, playing online poker on your mobile device (iOS and Android supported) at WSOP NJ and earning just 2 Action Points (AP) can lead to a valuable tournament ticket come February. The more days you play and earn 2+ AP this month, the higher the tournament ticket will be worth.
5 Days = One $1 Tournament Ticket
10 Days = Two $1 Tournament Ticket
15 Days = One $5 Tournament Ticket
22+ Days = One $10 Tournament Ticket
