Atlantic City Poker Tournaments – What They Bring

With Atlantic City poker tournaments provided by new state-based and veteran offshore Internet poker rooms, as well as those "old school" brick-and-mortar poker tournament offerings, it is a great time to be a competitive Atlantic City online poker player. Visitors and travelers to the beautiful ocean-side boardwalk city can join local New Jersey residents in daily, weekly and monthly tournaments which guarantee as much as $100,000. Offshore licensed and certified websites like BetOnline and Carbon Poker have been providing reliable and enjoyable Internet poker tournaments to New Jersey and US residents for years, and now the state of New Jersey has backed multiple websites offering a wide range of poker tournaments in Atlantic City virtual and physical casinos.

The benefits of established offshore providers like BetOnline are nationwide US access, healthy welcome bonuses, and much larger guaranteed dollar amounts than in the state-based poker rooms. For instance, players can access their $100,000 guaranteed weekly Sunday tournament with a guaranteed first prize payout of at least 20K. You can qualify for this potentially life changing tourney for as little as one dollar through a qualifying tournament. BetOnline is a legally licensed online provider of Internet gambling, and provides a very active tournament schedule and game menu for poker players at all skill levels.

Internet poker tournaments in Atlantic City, and available to all New Jersey residents, also include the Sunday Majors tournament schedule delivered by Party Poker every week. Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton is a spokesperson for the New Jersey Party Poker website, where you can buy in directly or win your way into the $50,000 guaranteed Sunday event on that site. Also available there are World Poker Tour qualifiers, which allow you to gain access to live, brick-and-mortar-based WPT events.

Carbon Poker has been offering Internet poker tournaments of substantial size to New Jersey and US residents since 2006, and they currently deliver multiple re-buy, sit-n-go, satellite qualifier and bounty tournaments online. With established US and New Jersey player support, Carbon Poker delivers guaranteed tournaments like the $100,000 Sunday Big Ticket Texas Hold 'Em contest, as well as Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Stud, Stud Hi/Lo, and HORSE poker as well. Entry into the largest guaranteed money tournaments at the site can be managed for as little as $1.10, if you play your cards correctly.

Of course, the well-known, land-based casinos located on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City are also home to physical tournaments. These Atlantic City casino hotels offer poker tournaments, as well as casino game tournaments also: The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, the Tropicana Casino and Resort, Caesars Atlantic City and Bally's Atlantic City all offer daily, weekly and monthly live poker tournaments for Atlantic City and New Jersey residents and visitors, as well as their virtual options. These six casinos are licensed by the state to provide web-based Atlantic City poker tournaments and Internet casino action through the new state-based online AC casinos. Physical tournaments include the $5,000.00 guaranteed Friday and Saturday tournaments at Bally's, as well as the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort monthly $5,000 Free Roll which you can qualify for every day. Typically, the largest paydays are found online, and now that the state has begun to deliver Atlantic City poker tournaments via the Internet, those choices combine with the established US-friendly offshore poker rooms to help provide an excellent choice for Internet poker players traveling to or living in New Jersey.
