In December, the partypoker US Network will be offering players in New Jersey the Players Choice Series. The events in the series are being left up to the players with the network asking for suggestions via Discord and Twitter. Players have been voting to decide what the schedule will look like for the series. Eight events are in question and feedback is being provided so partypoker can offer what the players want during the series.
Voting for Events
Players were allowed to vote for eight events with details such as game type and number of players at the table under consideration. Partypoker also asked if some event should be basis No Limit Hold’em options or progressive knockout format. Players could also choose what type of buy-ins should be offered along with the game structure.
The polls closed on November 11. Officials of partypoker said that the results of the polls will not determine the full final schedule. The online poker room reserved the right to substitute some events if similar events were chosen for the same time periods. However, the poker room will be influenced greatly by the choices of players.
We imagine that the schedule is being worked on now that the poll is closed. It should be within the next few weeks that partypoker provides details on the series for December. The series should be at least eight events since that is the amount that party had questions for. However, it could also include more options.
In October, the Players Choice Series took place and had 11 events and offered just under $260,000 in guaranteed prize money. It would be nice to see something similar, so players have a larger selection to choose from.
Because the series will run on the partypoker US Network, players can find the action at BetMGM, partypoker NJ and Borgata Poker. The three sites share the player pool.
Will the Players Choice Series Help partypoker Stay on Top?
In New Jersey, PokerStars has remained the top online poker provider, hitting record revenues and generating the most traffic month after month. In September, it was partypoker NJ that made it to the top of the list for online poker operations. Will the Players Choice Series help them do it again?
That month, partypoker earned around $14,000 more than PokerStars, so the margin was small. With so many events on the schedule during the December series, partypoker will have potential to earn more to end the year.
Players in other states will hopefully be able to enjoy partypoker action in the future. The brand is prepared to enter the Pennsylvania market soon, after the Gaming Control Board approved Roar Digital for operations.
The brand is also set to launch in Michigan. It was expected that online poker would launch in the state later on this year, but now reports are suggesting that online poker gaming will not be live in Michigan until 2021. We watch and wait as progress takes shape and hopefully see party in both states before long.
