While many poker players in the U.S. are spending today recovering from a Thanksgiving holiday that featured too much delicious food and a full day of NFL football, Black Friday sales have begun.
As many are aware, Black Friday has two meanings for U.S. poker players. The April 15, 2011 Black Friday that forever changed the online poker industry, and the Black Friday that falls on the day after Thanksgiving every year.
The latter is typified by huge discounts and sales at stores, marking the start of the Christmas shopping season. Also typical are massive crowds at those stores, a nightmare for those who happen to suffer from agoraphobia.
A better way to spend Black Friday is at home, in front of your laptop or desktop, taking advantage of the Black Friday sales available at New Jersey’s regulated online poker sites.
WSOP.com in New Jersey is offering discounts on buy-ins to four multi-table tournaments on Friday, November 28. Those four are at staggered times throughout the day and evening and are highlighted in yellow in the poker lobby.
New players at WSOP.com are welcomed with a 100% up to $400 deposit bonus. A full 60 days is allowed to clear the bonus, so spend Black Friday and the upcoming cold winter months by adding $400 to your bankroll.
Over at Borgata Poker, a huge discount can be found on Sunday, November 30, where the usual $50K guaranteed event has been doubled to a $100,000 prize pool. The $200 buy-in remains the same. The winner receives a whopping $20,000 first place prize.
Want to build that bankroll without risking any cash at all? Until the end of the year, Borgata Poker is running over three dozen daily freerolls to allow players to grab bonus cash. At least one freeroll tourney runs every hour for more than a month, extending Black Friday until the end of 2014!
888Poker in New Jersey is well aware that the four-day Thanksgiving holiday can get a little hectic with family obligations, shopping, and perhaps some exercise to shed the pounds gained from gorging on turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. Add to that some well-deserved nap time on the sofa and perhaps online poker is not a #1 priority for some this weekend.
For that reason, 888Poker is hosting a “$5,000 Too Much Turkey Freeroll” on Monday, December 1, after the Thanksgiving holiday but well ahead of Christmas. A deposit of $20 or more using the promotion code “Turkey2014” is good for a ticket to the freeroll, where $5K in prize money (Christmas shopping money) awaits.
The first-time deposit bonus at 888Poker is 100% up to $888. That generous offer is available until December 25 and allows 90 days to clear.
New Jersey offers
Savvy players in New Jersey could take advantage of the bonuses offered at all three poker sites. Play the discounted Black Friday multi-table tournaments at WSOP.com today, the doubled guaranteed prize pool of $100,000 at Borgata Poker on Sunday, and the Too Much Turkey $5K freeroll on Monday.
All the while, earning bonus cash from the generous deposit bonuses offered. Black Friday comes but once a year (except for two times in 2011 when the bad Black Friday had nothing to do with sales or shopping), so New Jersey online poker players have plenty of options this Thanksgiving holiday weekend, including Monday!
