WSOP Could Come to Pennsylvania Soon

June 8, 2020

Residents of Pennsylvania have enjoyed legalized online gambling for a while now. It took some time for online poker rooms to make their debut in the state, but players could soon have another option. The popular WSOP brand is planning to launch an online poker site for Pennsylvania in 2020.

Pennsylvania is one of just a handful of states that has legalized online casinos, online sports betting, and online poker. The legalization of online poker goes back to 2017, but licensing issues prevented the launch of the first sites for two years. PokerStars partnered with Mt. Airy Casino, a live Pennsylvania gaming venue, to begin offering poker in 2019, and the site has done well.

During the early months of 2020 as the country struggled with a global pandemic that led to a long period of quarantine, online gambling sites and PokerStars drew increased interest. Gaming providers are hoping that this will continue after the restrictions have been eased.

PokerStars will now face some competition from the biggest brand in the poker industry. The WSOP, or World Series of Poker, is owned by Caesar's entertainment. It regularly hosts the WSOP live event in Las Vegas each year. WSOP has also been offering online poker in Nevada for a few years.

Most residents and gaming officials in Pennsylvania think that competition will be good for online poker in the state. Players having more options means that online poker rooms are more likely to compete with one another by offering players more promotions and poker events.
