PokerStars riding the online poker spike in PA

Online poker traffic has reached record heights during the past few months as casinos and other non-essential businesses remained closed as part of efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus. The spike is evident in recent revenue figures posted by PokerStars PA.

Following a record high $3.1 million revenue in March, PokerStars pulled in nearly $5.3 million in April. May numbers, which are expected out soon, should be on par with April.

In what is usually a slower time for online poker (summer), live poker rooms in Pennsylvania remain closed until further notice. That is even as land-based casinos in the state begin reopening one by one. According to the PGCB casino reopening safety protocols: “Poker rooms are not authorized to operate due to players handling cards and chips.”

That adds up to continued high demand for the indoor online poker grind.

PokerStars PA is keeping up with that demand. Having already run four successful tournament series since its early November, 2019 debut, they ran a one-off tournament called Pennsyl-MANIA. The event crushed its $250k guarantee, creating a prize pool of $515,964. PokerStars undoubtedly hopes to carry that momentum into the Summer Series.

Below, find the full PokerStars PA Summer Series schedule. Note: All events are no-limit hold’em (NLHE) and 9-handed unless otherwise specified.
