The Bounty Builder Series has been a hit worldwide, so why not bring it to America? That’s the plan as PokerStars has announced a new Bounty Builder Series to run February 20 through March 1 on both the PokerStars Pennsylvania and PokerStars New Jersey sites.

Over on PokerStars PA, the tournament series will feature 32 events with guaranteed prize pools totaling $500,000. Just like the BBS works on the global site, all of the events will be played as “progressive knockouts” for which half the prize pools go to bounties that get bigger and bigger as the tournament goes along.

The series will culminate on Sunday, March 1 with the $300 buy-in Main Event featuring a big $100,000 guarantee.

Buy-ins for the PokerStars PA Bounty Builder Series will range from $10 to $750, with satellites running as well giving players a chance to win seats in events for as little as $1. There will also be a depositor freeroll on March 1 which will award $9,000 worth of buy-ins to the Main Event.
