World Series of Poker online launches in Pennsylvania

By

The World Series of Poker has launched its online platform in Pennsylvania after a successful trial run and approval from the PA Gaming Control Board.

Pennsylvania is the third state launch for WSOP, joining Nevada and New Jersey.

WSOP announced daily online bracelet events for Pennsylvania players from August 8 through August 15. Players must physically be in Pennsylvania and register for an account through WSOP’s website.

Pennsylvania players will have the opportunity participate in buy-ins as low as $1 that provide an opportunity to claim a ticket to the Main Event in Las Vegas this fall.

"We are thrilled to be opening up WSOP.com to the state of Pennsylvania," said Ty Stewart, SVP of the World Series of Poker at Caesars Entertainment. "The real winners in this expansion are the players who join us at WSOP.com. Our team is laser-focused on providing the most value to poker players in the state and are confident in the potential of our online poker product. With our industry best sign up promotions and the special bracelet series catered specifically to players in Pennsylvania, we welcome all players, from the casuals to the professionals and everyone in between."

Pennsylvania launched online poker in November 2019.

In May, 2021 the state reported online poker revenue of $2.6m, with $2.3m of win generated by PokerStars.

BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker (run by BetMGM) entered Pennsylvania in late April. BetMGM saw May revenue of $279,000, while Borgata took in $67,000.

WSOP is sure to shuffle the deck in the Keystone State poker market in the months ahead.
