PokerStars Launches Winter Series in PA

Pennsylvania is preparing to welcome another action-packed poker season with PokerStars kicking off the Winter Series due to launch on Thursday, January 21. This comes in a rather busy few weeks for the poker community in the Keystone State, after PokerStars hosted and completed the Pennsyl-MANIA tournament series on December 27.

With 45 tournaments and $1 million in prize money, the PokerStars PA Winter Series 2021 promises a proper start to the year and especially so if you are a poker player yourself. With the lockdown still driving up online poker traffic, Pennsylvania’s residents have a rather great opportunity to join in and benefit from a great poker festival.

Buy-ins will range between $10 and $1,000, offering flexible options for the majority of players out there. The festival will feature numerous game versions as well, with the bulk focusing on No-Limit Hold’em, along with Omaha, HORSE, 5-Card Draw, and a few others.

As to the chosen formats, players will get to experience turbo and DeepStacks, PKO and 6-Max, along with other viable formats. PokerStars has long been the only poker room in the Keystone State but this has not stopped it from channelling the community in many exciting and player-centric events.

PokerStars PA Winter Series will run through January 31 and will offer $1 million in guaranteed prizes in Pennsylvania. The company is also running a New Jersey version of the event with $500,000 in guaranteed prize money.

Pennsylvania will see a $300,000 Main Event along with depositor and second chance freerolls for a well-rounded selection of competitive opportunities. The Keystone State may soon see other operates enter the competitive poker landscape with both 888poker and Entain looking to secure a license each.
