Starting on July 12, players in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be able to take part in the Bounty Builder Series.

The only difference will be that Pennsylvania will offer more guaranteed prize money than New Jersey. In Pennsylvania, $1.5 million in guaranteed prize money will be on offer. The money will be spread over 70 events. The Main Event in PA will offer $150,000 in guaranteed prize money.
In New Jersey, players will be competing for $600,000. There will only be 53 events in this state. The Main Event in the Garden State will be set at $70,000 in prize money. Buy-ins in New Jersey will range from $10 to $750. In Pennsylvania, the buy-ins are a bit different, starting at $10 and going as high as $500.
The series will provide the Champion’s Belt in both states. There will be 18 designated events in both markets. Some events will include Super Tuesdays, Sunday Specials and Thursday Thrills. Each of the championship belt events will offer a belt similar to what you see in wrestling to the winner, on top of the prize money.

On top of the belts, players can also compete for in a leaderboard competition. The Knockout Leaderboard will offer $16,000 in prize money spread within both markets.
