BetMGM Introduces New Poker Series This Month
Created in collaboration with Daren “End Boss” Elias, the End Boss Poker Series will take place on the partypoker US Network in three states: Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The culmination of the 6-day, 7-event series comes with The End Boss Main Event.
The Main Event will be an 8-max No Limit Hold’em game that will feature six-figure guarantees for each state. BetMGM explained that in each state, the winner of the Main Event will be crowned the “End Boss” of their state.
Besides a piece of the guaranteed prize pool, the winner will also enter a special New Year Knockout PKO tournament. The poker pro Elias will join the players in New Jersey. Any player that eliminates him from the Main Event will receive a three-day, two-night stay at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.
