The New Jersey-regulated online poker site WSOP.com wishes to earn your custom by providing attractive promotions on a regular basis, and this month is no exception. There are a variety of May promotional offerings for you to choose from. It should be clear, however, you have to be in it to win it, so if you don’t already have an account, read our WSOP.com poker review and then open your account today.
We’ll be focusing on the offers available to New Jersey residents and visitors, but those who are in Nevada aren’t cut out of the loop either. WSOP.com is also running a number of special offers in that state, which you can read about in our WSOP.com Nevada May promos page.
The Colossal X
Last year’s WSOP Colossus event surpassed all expectations with 22,374 entrants ponying up $565 each to create a prize pool in excess of $11 million. The Colossus II event for 2016 will feature the same buyin, but there will now be six starting flights spread over three days and a guaranteed first prize of an even $1 million.
You can win your seat to Colossus II at WSOP.com New Jersey by playing in the special Colossal X tournament at 3 p.m. on May 15. This R&A satellite will cost $22 to enter and will award 10 prize packages to the winners. Each package consists of a $565 Colossus II entry as well as $600 for travel expenses.
If you don’t feel like paying the $22 buyin, then you can qualify for the Colossal X tournament by participating in daily mega-satellites for only $2. These re-entry satellites take place every day from May 1 – May 14 at 6:15 p.m. and award $22 seats to the Colossal X.
If you’ve been building up your WSOP.com Action Club status in New Jersey but are now travelling to Vegas for the WSOP, don’t worry. The poker site will transfer your status of Silver or higher from New Jersey to Nevada so that you can continue playing online without having to drop back down to the lowest tier. You can email WSOP.com to make the transfer anytime between May 1 and July 31.
Bankroll Builders Tournament Series
If the buyins for World Series of Poker events at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino seem a bit steep to you, then perhaps you’d be interested in the Bankroll Builders Tournament Series at WSOP.com. Every day from May 15 – 21, there will be three tournaments taking place, each with a buyin of no more than $1. The tourneys will all feature either NL Hold’em or PL Omaha, but there will be great variety in the tournament formats with freezeouts, R&As and re-entry events represented in the schedule.
As you play in these micro-stakes tournaments, you’ll be accumulating points on the leaderboard. At the end of the series, $332 in tournament tickets will be awarded to the top 10 players on the leaderboard.
New Jersey Happy Hours
Every day during the month of May, play cash game poker between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., and you’ll receive double APPs. This will allow you to climb the ranks of the Action Club that much faster, and once you reach Silver, you’ll receive WSOP points, which can be converted to cash, for every APP you accrue. This deal gets better and better as you increase your level in the Action Club program because the higher ranks benefit from larger points multipliers.

As part of the ongoing Road to the WSOP, players in New Jersey can participate in many online competitions to win their chance to play at the 2016 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
