The state’s very own online poker championship took place from 30 November to 16 December at, and saw such success within its opening weekend that PokerStars increased the $1 million guarantee by $100,000 on 2 December. The world’s most popular online poker operator then raised the guarantee again two days later on 4 December by $125,000, following ongoing exceptional performance.

We’re very proud to be the only place you can play poker legally online and look forward to poker’s future here in Pennsylvania."
