Participants in a reality TV show might not like it when they find themselves in the “hot seat,” but every time this week the WSOP New Jersey Multi-Table Hot Seat prizes are being given out, the hot seat is exactly where you want to be!
Best of all, during the Jan. 14-20 WSOP online NJ Multi-Table Hot Seat promotion, not just one player wins extra cash, but everyone in the hand at the randomly selected hot table. And if you happen to be playing in a cash game at one or more other tables simultaneously, you win additional money.
How the Multi-Table Hot Seat promotion on WSOP NJ works
The Multi-Table Hot Seat promotion on WSOP.com is in effect through Saturday, Jan. 20. On each day, one cash game table will be selected at random at a predetermined randomly picked time between 5 and 8 p.m. All players who are seated at the winning table and dealt into the first active hand thereafter will receive one of the following prizes:
The amount of each player’s prize is determined randomly and has nothing to do with whether the player wins or loses the hand. However, there is a way for a player to win a larger prize. Any player at the winning table who is multi-tabling — simultaneously playing at one or more other cash games — will receive an added bonus.
The size of the bonus can vary, as it is also randomly determined.
When are the prizes awarded?
All players who have won a prize will be informed of the amount via email within 72 hours. They will then receive the prize money in their account within 72 hours thereafter.
It is not clear from the terms and conditions whether the same 72-hour wait to learn the amount of one’s prize also applies to finding out whether one is seated at the winning table, or if that information is relayed immediately. If the winning table is revealed immediately, it is not clear whether players at other tables are privy to that information, too.
Is the Multi-Table Hot Seat promotion worth your time?
If you are going to play cash games on WSOP online NJ between now and Saturday, Jan. 20, the ideal time to do so is between 5 and 8 p.m. when this promotion is in effect.
Multi-table to maximize your winnings, but know your limits
If you are comfortable multi-tabling, by all means do so. The more tables you play, the better your chances to be in one of the hot seats. However, be careful not to take on more games than you can comfortably handle simultaneously. If you are new to multi-tabling, try playing at just two tables.
If either of them is the randomly chosen winning table, you only need to be seated at one other cash game to receive the Multi-Table Hot Seat Bonus!
Long wait for the prize seems unnecessary
Why the winners of this promotion have to wait up to six days to receive their prize (72 hours for the email and another 72 hours for the money to be credited to their account) escapes me. The money should be awarded instantly or within 24 hours at the latest. Imagine waiting six days and then only receiving a dollar!
Hopefully, players at the winning table are notified that they have won right after the applicable hand occurs. If I were playing on this site and seated at the winning table, I would definitely want to know immediately even if I have to wait to collect the prize.
If I were playing at another table, I would also want to know it is not the winning table so I would not get my hopes up. Once the Multi-Table Hot Seat promotion is over for the night, some players might want to quit, just as many players call it a night when the time period for a High Hand promotion is over.
This NJ gambling website promo is going to be fun
Aside from my criticism about the long wait for the prize, the WSOP.com Multi-Table Hot Seat is not only a fun promotion, but a potentially rewarding one.
Just be careful about the amount of multi-playing you do. You need to be able to play fast enough so you don’t miss your blinds and well enough to make good decisions even without as much information as you would have being seated at one table exclusively. Multi-tabling also costs more, so make sure it doesn’t exceed your budget.[i15-table tableid=4289]
