If your only gonna be here for 3 weeks theres some things you should know.
As far as I know, to withdraw anything you need to request it then once approved you have to go to the actual casino and prove your identity at the cashiers cage. So if you plan to withdraw at the end of your stay, you should also make plans to go to AC. I could be wrong, but this is what I understand about withdrawal right now.
And if your looking to choose which site to play on heres the best choices:
Borgatapoker.com has the most traffic, and there are plenty of players of all skill levels there. The site is the most fun to play on IMO, they have missions and achievements that earn you tourney tickets. Its much more like social media style poker than the other sites. The site can also be buggy at times, and I have been constantly having on and off lag and choppy play issues. The software is pretty, but very glitchy.
NJ.WSOP.COM has a bit less traffic, but is a donkey watering hole. The players on there are so bad that the frequent suck outs may shock you. I think WSOP
is a bit stingy as well, they have weak multi table tournaments and weak GTD prize pools compared to borgata. On the other hand, WSOP software runs much smoother.
If your coming to Jersey for a quickie I may suggest WSOP. A word of warning though, be very wary of collusion. Being that these sites are NJ only, there is quite a bit of collusion going on. Be careful about SnGs and leave cash games immediately if you get suspicious. I have encountered incredibly obvious collusion on a number of occasions.
