If you’re an online poker fan in Pennsylvania, you’re now able to use your computer or mobile device to play in exciting poker games and tournaments without ever leaving your house. PokerStars’ two-day soft launch was a big success, and the site is now fully available to players across the state.

The soft launch occurred over Monday and Tuesday last week as a testing period. The operator wanted to ensure that every aspect of the software would be fully functional before players had full access to playing poker online, and it turned out that everything went according to plan.

Players were eager to get started, as 700 players logged on during the first day of testing. A further 1100 signed up the following day. Even though they were only able to play during limited hours during the day, players showed up in droves to be the first to access PokerStars PA.

Now, players will have full access to the new Pennsylvania-facing online poker site from PokerStars. They will be able to play in cash games, multi-table tournaments and sit & gos. For the moment, Zoom Poker and Spin & Gos are not yet available.

For NLHE, players will be able to play at stakes from 1c/2c to $50/100. For Omaha, Stud and Draw players, stakes range from .50c/$1 all the way up to $100/$200. A wide array of poker tournaments are available, with buy-ins ranging from $2 to $500. Most of the MTTs are hypers and turbos, but there is likely going to be a wider range of events launched soon.

For new players at PokerStars PA, they will be able to take advantage of a welcome bonus that provides a 100% match up to $600. They will also receive $30 of free play ($10 for cash games and $20 for tournament tickets).

Welcome Freerolls are also available for new players, which is sure to be a big selling point. Prize pools worth up to $1000 are up for grabs, which makes for a tempting offer for anyone considering signing up to the new PokerStars PA website.
