Reimbursement for former U.S. Full Tilt players is due to commence in a few days and Partypoker’s New Jersey site has come up with a novel marketing idea.
Players within New Jersey can turn that long-awaited remission payment into a bonus that has a potential value of thousands of dollars in cash. There are three separate bonus tiers available.
Here’s how it works. Players who receive an ACH payment from claims administrator Garden City Group (GCG) can deposit either $75, $400 or $800 into their Partypoker New Jersey accounts. A $75 deposit is good for a $25 bonus by way of $10 allowed toward tournament play, $5 in cash game action, and the remaining $10 to be used at the online casino.
Depositors of $400 receive an entry ticket worth $100 to a tournament with a $10,000 guarantee, while an $800 deposit rewards $200 toward tournament action with payouts guaranteed at either $50,000 or a $100,000. Players who elect to make deposits at any of the three options are required to use the promotion code
OFFTILT when making said deposit.
Players depositing with regard to the bonus are advised to email firstname.lastname@example.org with proof of their remission payment. Don’t forget to include both your given name and screen name, as well as your phone number, to assist in the verification process. Player accounts will be credited within seven working days. The promotion will run through August 6, 2014, so there is plenty of time to take advantage of the available bonus.
Payments for U.S. Full Tilt players whose account balances were not in dispute are expected to be completed by the end of February, the GCG previously announced on the FullTiltPokerClaims.com website. A total of $82 million earmarked for roughly 30,000 players has been approved for disbursement by the DoJ.
Still to be decided are the reimbursements of U.S. Full Tilt players who have been labeled as affiliates or pros, as well as the accounts of players who are not in agreement with the balances set forth in notices sent out by the GCG. Affiliates must submit their final Petitions for Remission by March 2, 2014. Pros and those with disputed claims are still waiting for further instructions from the GCG.
Ex-Full Tilt players in the U.S. have been separated from their account funds for nearly three years. Payment is long overdue and the ability to possibly parlay some of those reimbursed funds into greater rewards at Partypoker New Jersey is a nice promotional bonus idea.
