Online poker fans in Pennsylvania have been waiting eagerly for news of any operators going live – and, now they can finally rejoice. It has been announced that PokerStars will be conducting a soft launch for its online poker product in Pennsylvania.

The testing period for PokerStars’ online poker product in Pennsylvania will start on November 4th, 2019. It will last for about two or three days, as the company ensures that the software is suitable for players across the state.

PokerStars is primarily concerned with the player experience, and how certain aspects of the software will affect it. For example, geolocation technology will be important in the testing period. It will ensure that only players who are physically located within the state of Pennsylvania.

A wide range of online poker games will be available to play at PokerStars PA. There will be all sorts of Hold’em, Omaha, Stud, Razz and Draw games available to players – with stakes ranging from 1c/2c all the way up to $100/$200.

When it comes to tournaments, plenty of events will be available. Sit n’ Gos, and multi-table tournaments can be played on PokerStars PA; however, Spin & Gos won’t be live when PokerStars launches in the state. Zoom Poker, PokerStars’ fast-fold variant, won’t be initial available in Pennsylvania, as well.

It’s not only online poker that the brand will be offering, however. PokerStars will provide players with a wide range of online casino games, like slots, table games and video poker. When the site launches, there will be over 70 casino games that players can take part in.

This is fantastic news for online poker players in Pennsylvania. PokerStars is one of the most popular and successful operators in the gambling market, so PA poker fans are definitely in for a treat.

Online gambling was initially made legal in Pennsylvania all the way back in 2018, but it wasn’t until this summer that online casino sites went live. Eventually, sportsbetting became available – but, online poker was nowhere to be seen.

Players starting to become impatient, taking to Twitter and other social media sites to voice their concerns. Now, there’s no need for complaints, as PokerStars will finally be providing players across Pennsylvania with the opportunity to play their favourite poker games online.
