PokerStars PA launched last week, and received a very enthusiastic welcome from players across the state. Here are some of the most important numbers from this important week in online poker history.

The testing period for PokerStars PA lasted for two days. On the first day, 700 players signed up while 1100 joined the second day. It was a very impressive response, especially considering that the site was only available for limited hours during the day.

Once the site was fully launched on Wednesday, players were even more excited to join in. In fact, there was one point over the week where there were more players online at PokerStars PA than on PokerStars NJ – a site that has been around for years.

Over the course of the past week, over $450,00 was awarded from the tournaments available on the site. Over 15,000 Sit & Gos were played, paying out over $500,000 to players across Pennsylvania.

This is stellar action for a site that is so new to Pennsylvania’s poker market. There is certainly going to be much more activity as more players continue to sign up to PokerStars’ online poker offering in Pennsylvania.

Big Wins at PokerStars PA

In Pennsylvania, there were some big winners over the course of the week at PokerStars PA. Some of the biggest winners were:

  • “Catfur77”, who won the $100 Sunday Special for $7,712.
  • “TallnessBink”, who won the $20 Moonlight Express for $651.88.
  • “love2playpoker”, who won the $100 Nightly Stars for $3,248.
  • “jb2paint”, who won the $50 Bounty Builder for $1,331 and $1081 in bounties
  • “Schmuckersville”, who won the $200 Thursday Thrill for $1,994

These prizes are sure to increase as the months go on. As more tournaments join in the action, the prize pools will increase and we’ll be seeing much more generous payouts for the winners at PokerStars PA.

Now that PokerStars has launched in Pennsylvania, we hope to see other operators opening up shop. However, there’s no telling when the rest of the brands that have obtained licenses will make their services available to players across the state.  Both partypoker and WSOP have licenses to operate in Pennsylvania but, considering how long it took PokerStars to launch, it could be quite a while before those companies are ready.
