With the two new online poker rooms, they join an online poker market that had already included the world’s most well-known online poker brand, PokerStars PA. The extra competition will benefit players in the form of more competitive bonuses, improved customer service and hopefully stronger all-around platforms.
Although new to the state, BetMGM and Borgata Poker have previously gone live in New Jersey and Michigan, opening up a strong possibility that once multi-state agreements are in place, that the brands could marge players pools across state lines. The prospect is an enticing one due to the extra liquidity that it provides, increasing the size of tournament prize pools as well as the number of games.
Through a partnership with partypoker, both brands utilize the well-known and established partypoker software under the partypoker Network platform. Although partypoker operates in neighboring New Jersey there are no indications a partypoker branded room will be next.
What can players receive at either poker room?
As sister online poker rooms, both Borgata Poker and BetMGM offer similar bonuses. The welcome offer includes a $25 freeplay bonus that you can receive after registering plus a 100% up to $600 first deposit bonus.
A good general rule of thumb for the offer is to use the no deposit bonus to check out and see what you think of the online poker room. If you like what you see, make a deposit and receive up to $600 matched in bonuses.
To celebrate the launch of the new online poker rooms, both poker rooms are also doing their best to get players in the door right now.
$40,000 Invitational Freeroll
Both Borgata Poker and MGM Poker will be wasting no time if offering a lucrative freeroll for new players. All new players that register for either online poker room will receive an entry into a $40,000 freeroll, where the top 800 players will receive part of the prize pool and first place will receive the equivalent of $1,200 in prizes such as tournament tickets.
In addition to the $25 registration bonuses and the 100% up to $600 deposit bonus, a couple of other launch bonus offers will be available including a $50 reload as well as a $50 fast cash bonuses, available starting on May 16th.
On both online poker rooms, players can receive additional rewards as cash game players. For at least the rest of 2021, every iReward Point that a player earns during the month will be earned towards an additional cash reward.
Once the month has been completed, you will receive a prize based on how many IRPs you earned. You will start out by needing to earn 100 iPRs to receive your first $1 in rewards, but as you can earn more, your rate will improve. For example, to earn $100 in rewards, you will only need 6,000 iRPs.
