  • The January revenue was 26% higher year-over-year but still far from the all-time high posted back in April
  • Pennsylvania is soon hoping to see other poker brands as well as join the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement, or the single liquidity

The state of Pennsylvania registered another steady month in poker, with PokerStarsPA generating $2.7 million in revenue in January.

PokerStars PA Drives Steady Revenue in January

Pennsylvania has started online poker on a steady footing in January, driving some $2.7 million in revenue as reported by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCA). Overall, PokerStars PA, the sole card room operating in the Keystone State, has been posting $2.7 million for several months. That is a far cry from the state’s all-time high in April 2020 when the pandemic forced widespread shutdowns and many people tuned in to play.

Nevertheless, January 2021 was 26% higher year-over-year, according to Pokerfuse, a website that analyzes poker and offers a detailed breakdown of monthly revenue results. PokerStars has kept the competitive circuit equally busy, featuring a 2021 Winter Series event with numerous mini-tournaments.

Yet, this may be the last month of PokerStars PA being the sole player in the country’s poker market. A slew of new entries is just around the corner, with BetMGM Poker, partypoker, and Borgata Poker all rattling their sabers and looking for an entry.

While BetMGM is prioritizing Michigan by the look of it, the other two should be heading into the state before long. The same applies to WSOP PA and 888 Poker 8. In fact, Poker 8 should be coming to the Keystone State, as confirmed by 888 chief executive Yaniv Sherman. GGPoker has too obtained a license, but only as a supplier for the time being.

Welcome the Single Liquidity in Pennsylvania

This begs the question of whether the inundation of new poker rooms would boost audiences. The chances are that more players would seek out to play. The idea of joining a new card room appeals, but how friendly would these be to new players would ultimately determine whether players stick or move on to another form of entertainment.

Of course, the biggest spike in traffic for the poker community would be none other than the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA), colloquially known as the single liquidity. Presently, not all states share liquidity, nor do all card rooms.

Bringing all under the same roof would mean a huge surge in online poker traffic as well as more prize pools. Entries from Michigan and West Virginia could be complete game-changers as they would bring thousands of new players giving the game of poker a proper boost.
