PokerStars surprises its fans with a familiar promotion, Cardex that will be running all through to January 24, 2021. The promotion is ongoing in two states, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Cardex is a bingo-styled cash game that guarantees players up to $5000 prizes every day. The campaign last rolled out in August 2020 in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania markets, running for almost a month with a bounty of wins for those who participated.
How to Play Cardex Promotion
Cardex promotion is available on NL Hold’em game tables whereby at least three players have to participate in a game for the Cardex reward to activate. Those participating will match their hole cards on these cash table games to the cards that show on the Cardex spinning reel. You’ll find the Cardex feature in the Challenges Window, on your player profile main lobby, whether you’re using the PokerStars Pennsylvania or PokerStars New Jersey player profile.
To qualify for the daily $5000 cash prize, you’ll need to log in to your player profile and choose NL Hold’em table game every day. Consequently, click the start button found on the Challenges Window to step closer to the day’s win. With your five cards, the Cardex spinning feature will show its five cards one after another, allowing you to do the same before revealing the second card.
You have to match each card revealed until you compare all the five cards. To win the prize, you also need to match the Cardex’s color with your cards. For example, if the Cardex spinning wheel shows a black Queen, you must also show any the Queen of Spades or Queens of Clubs.
Cardex promotion from PokerStars is a customized feature for each player, which results in unique table stakes and payouts for each player despite all playing one table game. This means that some players will win more than others, depending on the stakes they place. Overall, players will get instant cash prizes ranging between $0.50 and $5000.
Online Poker in Pennsylvania and New Jersey
Cardex promotion in Pennsylvania is a well-thought idea for PokerStars as the operator will soon start sharing the market. Today, PokerStars is the sole operator offering real money online poker in Pennsylvania. However, things are about to change for the operator when BetMGM collaborates with a brand offering online poker in the Garden State on the partypoker US platform, Roar Digital, launch their partnership in Pennsylvania (PA).
BetMGM is already a step ahead as it has already established online casino games in Pennsylvania after affiliating with Hollywood Casino owned by the Penn National. World Series of Poker (WSOP) PA and 888 may also enter Pennsylvania any time now after 888 gained an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer license last year in October. WSOP may join hands with 888 to unveil real money online poker games in Pennsylvania, as they have done in New Jersey.
With PokerStars PA earning over $34 million in income in Pennsylvania alone, it is understandable why other online poker operators are interested in the market. The good thing is that poker players will have a variety of online poker platforms to choose from, raising the competitiveness with every operator.
