October 22, 2021inPoker

Attention US PokerStars players! Whether you are in Pennsylvania, Michigan, or New Jersey, all three states’ PokerStars sites are hosting big events this weekend!

It’s the return of Pennsyl-MANIA, the Michigan Classic, and the New Jersey Classic!

All three events begin at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 24 at PokerStars PA, PokerStars MI, and PokerStars NJ. Each is a $300 buy-in, two-day no-limit hold’em tournament, and the guaranteed prize pools across all three add up to a whopping $700,000 across all three tournaments.

Note: Only those in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey can play at PokerStars in the US, and in each case players only play against others in their own states.

Here’s a quick rundown of each event.

Pennsyl-MANIA on PokerStars PA

The Pennsyl-MANIA event at PokerStars PA will feature a $350,000 guaranteed prize pool.

While the big event starts at 5 p.m. on Sunday, earlier in the day there will be a Pennsyl-MANIA Depositor Freeroll at PokerStars PA giving players a chance to win their way into Pennsyl-MANIA for FREE.

All players have to do is deposit $30 or more by 1:59 p.m. ET on Sun., Oct. 24 using the code “PAMANIA21” to win a free entry into the freeroll that starts at 2 p.m. The top 50 finishers in the freeroll will then win Pennsyl-MANIA seats for later in the afternoon, a $15,000 value!

The Michigan Classic at PokerStars MI

Over at PokerStars MI, the Michigan Classic will sport a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool.

There is a Michigan Classic Depositor Freeroll as well early Sunday afternoon, the terms of which are identical to the Pennsyl-MANIA one described above. The only difference is PokerStars MI players should use the bonus code “CLASSIC21” when depositing $30 or more.

The New Jersey Classic on PokerStars NJ

Finally, the New Jersey Classic at PokerStars NJ will have a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool.

There’s a New Jersey Classic Depositor Freeroll as well. Same deal — deposit $30 or more by 1:59 p.m. ET on Sunday to get a seat in the 2 p.m. event, and the top 50 get Classic tickets. PokerStars NJ players should also use the bonus code “CLASSIC21” when they deposit $30 or more.

Keep in mind as well that all three sites continue to run satellites into their respective big events with buy-ins as low as $15. Each site is also running $3 Spin & Go’s that are awarding tickets to the $300 events.

Good luck to everyone in PA, MI, and NJ in this weekend’s events!
