888 upds the New Jersey poker ante with 80 percent rakeback.

By RP, January 16, 2014

All American Poker Network operator 888Poker has revved up online poker competition in New Jersey with email blasts touting a radical 80 percent rakeback offer.

The company is intent on improving its currently third place standing behind Borgata and Caesars Interactive in the new market and can currently boast (according to independent numbers from online poker monitor Pokerscout) a 24 hour peak cash game player base of 247.

The opposition will be hard-pressed to top this sort of offer, which has been emailed to players this week:

“It doesn’t get much bigger than this – 80 percent Rakeback on all cash games through May!

“Simply wager $500 or more on cash games during a single day between January 15-31 and you’ll get 80% rakeback on every cash game until May 2014.

“But be sure to check your emails – every Sunday we’ll email you a link to claim your weekly rakeback amount.

“Hurry – to get 80% rakeback until May, you have to play by January 31st.”
