Claim a 100% bonus on your first deposit - get up to $600 for free

Make your first-ever real money deposit using the bonus code ‘STARS600’, and PokerStars will give you a 100% bonus up to $600. To claim the full value of the bonus, you can make up to three qualifying deposits in 60 days.

Please note that all players creating a PokerStars NJ account are eligible for this first deposit offer, even if you've had a PokerStars account in the past.

How the 100% First Deposit Bonus works

1. Make your first deposit using the bonus code ‘STARS600’ and PokerStars will match your deposit by 100%, up to $600.

2. Once you’ve made your deposit, you need to earn redemption points by playing real money games on PokerStars NJ. In most games, you will receive 5 redemption points for every $1 you pay in tournament fees or rake. All PokerStars NJ ring games and tournaments which have a rake or fee will award redemption points - Play Money and Freeroll tournaments do not award redemption points, as they do not charge cash fees.

3. Every time you earn 100 redemption points we will credit your account with $10 cash - that’s a rebate of at least 50% on every dollar you spend. You have four months after each qualifying deposit to earn all the redemption points needed to release your bonus. To check the status of your bonus, and how many redemption points you need to earn to release the next $10, open the Cashier window at PokerStars NJ.

4. If you haven’t claimed the whole $600 bonus with your first deposit, you may claim the remainder of your bonus with your second and/or third deposits.

Deposit now and you’ll also be credited with one ticket to the Depositor Freeroll, played at 18:00 ET on the last Sunday of every month, as well as 1M free Play Money chips.

Special Offer Details & Rules

  1. This offer was announced on March 16, 2016 and is valid from 16:00 ET on March 16, 2016.
  2. This promotion is only available to players making their very first real money deposit into their PokerStars NJ account using the bonus 'STARS600'.
  3. This offer is only valid once per player.
  4. The maximum eligible deposit that any player can make will be capped at USD $600.
  5. Any player making an eligible deposit using the bonus code ‘STARS600’ will receive a bonus amount equivalent to the eligible deposit made. The maximum bonus payable shall not exceed the maximum eligible deposit of $600 whether in total or aggregate.
  6. The amount of bonus that a player will collect depends on the number of redemption points the player earns during the relevant period.
  7. The bonus will be paid out in $10 increments. For example, the player makes a $50 eligible deposit in order to receive a Bonus of $50 (100%). The player now has a pending Bonus of $50 with a 500 VPP (100 x 50) requirement to be achieved within the eligible period, and will receive an incremental bonus of $10 every time that player earns 100 redemption. If the player then makes a further eligible deposit of $400, he/she will receive another pending Bonus of $400.
  8. A player can track the bonus to be received by clicking on the ‘Cashier’ button in the poker client. Once in the cashier window of the client, there is a button labelled ‘My Bonus Status.’ Players will see a $10 credit in their transaction history in the Cashier ('Cashier' > 'History'). These are labelled as 'BONUS'.
  9. Bonus clearance rate is $10 for every 10 0 redemption points earned.
  10. Players may make up to 3 (three) eligible deposits so as to receive the maximum bonus payable under this promotion provided that all eligible deposits: (i) must be made within 60 days from the date of the first eligible deposit; and (ii) are made using the bonus code ‘STARS600’.
  11. If a player cashes out any amount after making an eligible deposit, any subsequent deposits cannot count as eligible deposits. However, the player's pre-cash out eligible deposit continues to be valid, and the player can still collect the bonus generated from the pre-cash out Eligible Deposit.
  12. For the purposes of this bonus offer, eligible deposits shall exclude any type of real money credit such as marketing promotional credits, poker school credits  from any of our sites (or any third party site if applicable) or freeroll winnings.
  13. Players may not combine or use any other deposit bonus schemes offered on PokerStars NJ.
  14. Where a player fails to enter or include a bonus code when making an Eligible Deposit and:
    1. no more than 7 (seven) days has passed since the first eligible deposit was made, then the player must contact before the expiry of the 7 (seven) day period and (subject to all necessary conditions being met), the bonus will be credited to the player account together with the redemption points earned as from the date of the first eligible deposit until the player’s account is credited with the bonus;
    2. more than 7 (seven) days but less than 3 (three) months have passed since the first eligible deposit was made, then the player must contact before the expiry of the 3 (three) month period and only the bonus will be credited into the player’s account. For the avoidance of doubt, no redemption points will be credited to that player as part of the bonus; and
    3. more than 3 (three) months has passed since the first eligible deposit was made, no bonus or redemption points shall be awarded or credited to the player’s account.
  15. The Depositor Freeroll ticket can be used to enter the freeroll played on the last Sunday of each month. The prize guarantee of the Depositor Freeroll may vary. It will be displayed in the client for each month and will not change once announced. The freeroll ticket is valid for 60 days and is non-transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash, T$, or other tickets/non-exchangeable. Any unused tickets after 60 days will be forfeited.
