From 15 July, online poker will be allowed in the US state of Pennsylvania. PokerStars, 888 and partypoker are in the starting blocks.
Pennsylvania is the fifth state to regulate online poker. The necessary law was passed in October 2017, but this was only the first step in the process.
This week it finally happened and the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced a deadline. There are 17 casinos, ten licensees and three platform operators. PokerStars works with Mount Airy.
It is believed that Harrah’s will bring two poker rooms (888poker & WSOP.com) online. Valley Forge and partypoker are also partners.
It is still unclear who Hollywood, Parx, Sands, SugarHouse, Golden Nugget and MGM will bring on board. The remaining casinos currently have no plans to offer poker or casino games on the net.
