BetMGM’s March Poker Mania by State

The March Poker Mania series kicks off on March 20 across all three BetMGM Poker sites and will run for a full week with identical schedules across MI, NJ, and PA. However, as usual, guarantees will differ.

The series features a solid variety of events, with regular and PKO Hold’em tournaments, several Pot-Limit Omaha events, and a big Heads-Up tournament with $10,000 in added prizes.

Buy-ins for March Poker Mania range from $55 to $1,060, so there is something for players of all wallet sizes to look forward to. It is interesting that the operator will host two Main Events instead of the usual one, adding even more excitement to the mix.

Two Main Events on March 27

The first March Poker Mania Main Event will take place in two phases. Every day for the duration of the series, a Phase I event will take place, giving players a chance to win their way into the Phase II tournament on March 27. Alternatively, players can buy directly into Phase II for $535.

The second Main Event is geared toward those with deeper bankrolls. Starting an hour before the Phase II event, it features a buy-in of $1,060.

While guarantees for other tournaments vary by state, both Main Events across all states guarantee $75,000 and $100,000, respectively, giving players plenty to fight for.

Other interesting tournaments on the docket include:

  • $535 Warm-Up on March 20
  • $535 6-max Progressive Knockout event on March 22
  • $320 6-max PKO on March 24
  • $1,060 Heads-Up event capped at 32 players, with $10,000 added to the prize pool

As always, players looking to participate will need to be physically located in one of the states where the site is licensed — Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Michigan.

Those players who do not have an account with BetMGM Poker US yet can also take advantage of a generous welcome bonus of 100% deposit match up to $600 at BetMGM PA and BetMGM MI and 100% up to $1,000 at BetMGM NJ. At all three sites, new players will also get rewarded with $25 in FREEPLAY to get them started.

A lot of the action will be streamed by the operator’s ambassadors in respective states, so poker fans in the US and worldwide will get to enjoy some quality free content as an added bonus.
