Players in the regulated state of New Jersey may not be aware of some of the promotions and bonuses on offer to them from the poker sites operating in the Garden State.

There are a number of ways to boost your bankroll compliments of the licensed sites, and New Jersey players would do well to take advantage of the offerings available. Currently, there are four regulated poker rooms at which to play in New Jersey.

That is, until PokerStars eventually joins the mix. But until that time – whenever it may be – take a look at what’s available and grab some bonus cash if you happen to be a resident or plan to visit New Jersey anytime soon.

WSOP.comA first-time deposit bonus of 100% up to $400 awaits players at, the most popular regulated poker room in America. That bonus is also available to players at the site in Nevada.

You’ll get a week’s worth of freeroll tickets along with your initial deposit, good for entry into $100 Daily Welcome Week Freerolls. The top 20% of players make money in the daily freerolls, which is a better deal than the 10% that are typically paid in tournament play.

Other bankroll boosters include a $10 bonus just for registering a new account, and an Early Bird Special that allows players 55 and older to earn double the Action Player Points everyday from 12:00-4:00 p.m.
