It was a long time coming, but online poker is finally live in Pennsylvania – and, it is thriving. PokerStars has been live for nearly a month now in the Keystone State, and has seen tremendous success so far.

According to online poker traffic reports, PokerStars PA ranks very highly. For example, its 7 Day Average is 450 players, which is tied with Unibet – one of the biggest poker brands in the world. For the same metric, PokerStars PA beats out partypoker Europe, 888 Spain and the Microgaming Poker Network – all of which have been around much longer.

This shows that the uptake for online poker in Pennsylvania has been huge. It should come as no surprise, though. Across Pennsylvania, players have been waiting patiently for the launch of online poker and now that it’s finally here, they are making the most of it!

The numbers are only going to keep growing, as well. You can tell by looking at how many players have entered PokerStars’ tournaments over the past couple of weeks. For example, the most recent Sunday Warm-Up attracted over 400 players – a significant increase from the 329 runners that took part the week before. Additionally, there were 10% more players who competed in the Sunday Storm this week than there were the previous week.

Things really do just seem to be getting better and better for PokerStars PA – but, will it last? Some industry experts have expressed doubts that the brand will continue on such a steep upwards trajectory, but there is proof that the brand will maintain such an impressive level of growth at least for the next few months.

Pennsylvania is a big state, and has more residents than any other state in which online poker is currently regulated. In fact, it’s almost as many residents as Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware combined. So, as word spreads about online poker being available in Pennsylvania, the number of players at PokerStars PA will keep growing and growing.

The brand is also doing lots to foster this growth, too. PokerStars has announced the first-ever Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker (PACOOP), which will feature 50 events and a $1 million guarantee across all of them. In the main event, there is a $100,000 guarantee, and players will be able to earn entry by taking part in all sorts of satellites.

This is definitely a great time to be an online poker player in Pennsylvania. Things are only going to get better as PokerStars continues to up the ante and as more online poker operators enter the market.
