Pennsylvania online poker players now have a second place to play with the Thursday launch of BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker in their home state. Powered by the partypoker US Network, this marks the second operator to launch in the Keystone State, ending the monopoly that PokerStars PA has had since launching in November 2019.
“Pennsylvania customers will find that BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker provide engaging experiences for both new and seasoned players,” said Ray Stefanelli, Director of Poker, BetMGM. “The partypoker US Network supports the online poker community, providing access to training initiatives designed to help all participants strengthen their play.”
BetMGM Poker is now available in three states, along with New Jersey and Michigan while BorgataPoker.com is now available in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Pennsylvania players will not be playing against players from those states as they are not part of an interstate liquidity sharing pact.
To celebrate the arrival of the new poker rooms, new players can grab a $25 bonus plus a 100% deposit match bonus on their first deposit, to a maximum of $600, by signing up here. There is also a pair of Opening Week Freerolls on May 9 and May 16 and new players are eligible to play in one of them.
“Pennsylvanians can now experience our superior poker offering through both BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker,” said Adam Greenblatt, Chief Executive Officer, BetMGM. “We’re eager to expand our platform to a larger online audience, and give players in the Keystone State safe, accessible and entertaining poker options.”
BetMGM launched their casino product in Pennsylvania in March leading Pennsylvania poker players to speculate as to when the poker product will launch.
