888Poker Announces 80% Rakeback For New Jersey Players

888 Poker USA888Poker which is one of the leading online poker sites in the world, and gained a license to operate in the US market at us.888poker.com has announced that as part of a promotion for New Jersey players they will be offering an astonishing 80% rakeback deal, which is applicable to cash games, until the end of April, 2014.

As per the email that was sent by 888Poker to all NJ players, players are being asked to wager $500 or more on cash games during a single day. They have until January 31 to do this in order to take advantage of this amazing offer. Once you meet the requirements, you’ll get 80% rakeback on cash game play.

According to PokerScout, 888Poker currently being the third largest online poker site in the state of New Jersey, after the Party Poker and WSOP brands, with around 250 cash game players active at the table during peak times, this promotion would hope to see more players join the site to gain a foothold in the New Jersey market.

Although it’s still the very early stages of the promotion, it does seem like the promotion is working as it was intended, because at the start of January 888Poker had around 220 cash game players at peak times throughout the day. So, evidently lots of players are joining 888Poker in New Jersey, even though the poker site is using the same software platform as one of its competitors (WSOP.com).

You may be excused for thinking that this promotion is “too good to be true” since a 80% rakeback deal is unheard of in the industry. Although it’s not a permanent deal, the amount of rakeback that you receive over the course of a bit more than 3 months would still be substantial.

Currently, no other poker site in New Jersey is offering a rakeback deal that is anything close to this 888Poker New Jersey promotion, but it will be interesting to see if any other operators in New Jersey are able to respond with a similar rakeback promotion.

All the NJ operators have a loyalty program in place for players which doesn’t offer direct rakeback, but it basically works in much the same way, with rakeback being paid through promotions and cash back offers, but even still it doesn’t come close to paying out 80% rakeback.

For players who have qualified for this promotion, receiving rakeback at us.888poker.com is available each Sunday. A claim link is provided in an email in order for players to receive their rakeback, advising each player how much rakeback is owed and allowing them to have the rakeback credited to their account once clicking on the link. It is important that these emails don’t get left ignored in your inbox because the rakeback owed expires after 7 days.

In addition to the 80% rakeback promotion, players are eligible to receive a 100% bonus up to $500 and $10 worth of free chips upon creating a new account and making a first deposit.

Will 888Poker become the leading online poker site in New Jersey? Only time will tell, but there is a lot to get excited about for 888 Poker and online poker players in NJ.
