BorgataPoker extends Sunday poker tournaments with Summer Splash
BorgataPoker.com has always been known for its Sunday 5 p.m. poker tournament. With a $40,000 guarantee, it remains one of the richest weekly online poker tournaments in any U.S. market.
But, BorgataPoker has made it even more lucrative for the summer season.
The site has introduced the Summer Splash, which began June 3 and runs to September 2. Players who participate in three or more of the signature Sunday events during that time have a chance to win an invitation to a special Summer Splash freeroll event on September 9. The freeroll is giving away $3,500 World Poker Tour (WPT) Borgata Poker Open Championship entries and more.
The $40,000 Sunday tournament carries a $215 buy-in, but through the Summer Splash promotion, you can get some cash back on those stakes. You start receiving tournament dollars once you’ve entered three Sunday tournaments ($10 for the first three and then rising with every entry). Play in 14, and you get a free $215 entry into another Sunday $40,000 tournament.
But it’s the September 9 freeroll that offers the best rewards. The top 50 places in the freeroll will win prizes, including land-based entry into the $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. Other prizes include entry into the $1 Million Guaranteed Borgata Poker Open Almighty Stack as well as more online entries into the Sunday $40,000 tournament and BorgataPoker’s Daily $10,000 tournament.
Here’s the prize rundown:
