On May 17, PokerStars PA will launch the Pennsyl-MANIA online poker tournament, which will be the biggest poker event on record in the Keystone State.

Pennsyl-MANIA by PokerStars Happening on Sunday

PokerStars PA is bringing out $250,000 in guaranteed prize pools for its upcoming Pennsyl-MANIA tournament. The event will take place on Sunday, May 17, and ask participating players to be prepared to meet the $200 buy-in.

For players who want to avoid the steep buy-in, there are already Pennsly-MANIA satellite events on the way. The entry cost is just $10 to try and get a package for the main event via one of the satellites. Pennsyl-MANIA will be the largest online poker event in the state to date.

Re-entries will be allowed during the first five hours of Day 1. All players can re-enter up to five times. The tournament will run for two days.

Scoop up More Bonuses with Pennsyl-MANIA

Players who want to benefit from the platform’s offer can opt into a special promotion that will give them tickets to a special Pennsyl-MANIA Depositor Freeroll. To qualify, players need to make a deposit worth $30 and use MANIA as the bonus code.

While you receive the ticket for the freeroll automatically, all registrations for the actual tournament need to be done manually. Everyone in the top 50 will receive a $200 buy-in package, making for a rather packed field of contestants on tournament day.

PokerStars Continues to Operate with Success in the Keystone State

PokerStars PA opened shop in the state back in 2019, becoming one of the first poker sites to bring poker to the newly-regulated market. It has gathered momentum at an impressive pace, leading to the wider adoption of online poker in the state.

Previously in April, PokerStars hosted the rather successful PASCOOP which ended on April 20 and topped the prize pools at $3.1 million after 96 separate events. The total money paid exceeded the guarantee by nearly 60%, showing strong interest in poker.

PokerStars has also been successful in other states, including in New Jersey where it ran NJSCOOP. The cardroom was also the most profitable one in April based on data released by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

Online gaming and poker have been picking up momentum during the lockdown, media and the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) have reported.
