Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

Michigan online poker players still have time to get in on the action at the PokerStars Fall Fest. The online series, which began on Nov. 17, continues through Nov. 27 with buy-ins that range from $5 up to $1,500. The Fall Fest series’ total guarantee in Michigan is $1.25 million. The Michigan event features a shared player pool with participants from New Jersey.

PokerStars’ online announcement for the Fall Fest notifies prospective players that the series’ main event will be on Nov. 26 with a buy-in of $300 and a guarantee of $200,000. There’s also a $30,000 guaranteed mini main event on Nov. 26 for those using the PokerStars Michigan promo code, with a buy-in of $30.

The PokerStars Fall Fest is also being held in some other jurisdictions where online poker also has been legalized, including Pennsylvania and the province of Ontario.

Last Event In Series Set For Nov. 27

The last event in the Michigan-New Jersey poker tournament series is on Nov. 27.  It’s the “Fall Sendoff” with a $100 buy-in and a $35,000 guarantee.

In each of the tournament series, whether it’s within the Michigan-New Jersey shared player pool, or in Pennsylvania or in Ontario, prospective players must be in those respective jurisdictions to participate. That includes Michigan online casinos participants.
