  1. The excitement of the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker may be winding down for international players, but for grinders in Michigan and New Jersey - it’s just getting started. PokerStars has unveiled the complete schedules for both the Michigan Spring Championship of Online Poker as well as the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker. The two series will take place at the same time, running from May 8-24, and while both will feature the traditional SCOOP three-tiered buy-in format (High, Medium, and Low) the two series have been fine-tuned for each of the two U.S. m
  2. Online poker players in Michigan now have another online poker site to play on. BetMGM Poker, which uses the partypoker software, launched Monday afternoon to join PokerStars MI as the only sites currently serving the Great Lake State. "The demand for online poker in Michigan was made clear by players across the state. BetMGM Poker is proud to offer them a seat at our tables and we’re confident that BetMGM Michigan customers will enjoy an engaging, reliable, and fun poker experience," Ray Stefanelli, Director of Poker, BetMGM said.

  3. For the last 17 days, the top online poker players in Michigan battled in the first major online poker series since the launch of PokerStars Michigan, the only regulated site currently operating in the state, just over seven weeks ago. The original schedule for the Michigan Championship of Online Poker called for $1 million in guarantees but strong turnouts throughout the series convinced PokerStars to up the guarantees and the total prizepools for the 60 events surpassed $2.2 million. Not surprisingly, the biggest winner came from the marquee event on the schedule. 'smftt' beat out 1,283
  4. If there was ever any doubt that Michiganders were ready for the return of online poker, the opening weekend of PokerStars' inaugural Michigan Championship of Online Poker should put those notions to rest. Less than one month ago PokerStars announced the launch of PokerStars MI, the first (and currently only) regulated online poker site in the Wolverine State. Much like the online poker operator did when they went live in Pennsylvania, they quickly scheduled their signature Championship of Online Poker (COOP) series for a whole new batch of recently registered screen names. MICOOP serves bo
  5. Just over a week after launching the first regulated online poker site in the state of Michigan, PokerStars has announced the inaugural Michigan Championship of Online Poker. PokerStars’ marquee series is coming to the Wolverine State beginning on February 20 and running through March 8. It features 60 tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $20 to $500 and a total of $1,000,000 in guaranteed prize money. “Coming off the launch of our real-money gaming brands in Michigan, it is clear that players want the world-class offerings that online PokerStars can bring,” said FOX Bet CEO Kip Levin.
  6. Friday, January 29 will go down as a great day for Michigan online poker players. After years of waiting, Michiganders can finally play on a regulated online poker site from the comfort of their own home. PokerStars launched PokerStarsMI.com on Friday afternoon alongside their sports book product, FOX Bet Michigan, and a casino product. This comes just one week after online sports betting launched in the state. PokerStars is the first online poker product available in the state. "We welcome the addition of Odawa Casino, Poker Stars, Fox Bet and Barstool Casino to Michigan’s growing onlin
  7. In what is seen as a big win for interstate online poker, the First Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission in their case against the U.S. Department of Justice and its revised opinion of the Wire Act. As originally reported by OnlinePokerReport.com, the ruling upholds the decision of a lower court that the reinterpretation of the Wire Act by the Department of Justice in 2018 is incorrect. In that revised opinion, the DOJ sought to expand the coverage of the Wire Act beyond sports betting to include all forms of gambling which included lotteries a
  8. Just weeks after Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a bill that legalized online gaming - including online poker - one of the world's leading online poker operators has announced a partnership with a local tribe. The Stars Group, the parent company of PokerStars and FOXBet, announced an agreement with Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Gaming Authority that gives it "first skin market access to operate and brand real-money online betting, poker, and casino" to Michiganders. This makes PokerStars the first online poker operator to announce a partner in Michigan since the bill was
  9. Wednesday was a big day for Michigan online poker players as the State Senate passed a package of bills that make online poker, sports betting, daily fantasy sports and online casino legal inside state borders. The three bills each passed the Senate by a 35-3 vote and will need to next pass through the House for concurrence before it lands on the desk of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for her signature and final approval. The bills should pass through the house on Wednesday night. This marks the second straight year that Michigan has passed an online gambling bill. In 2018, the legislature passed
  10. As we move into 2020, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of 2019. December saw one of the largest online poker tournaments ever, a new state regulating online poker, and Pennsylvania players getting their first taste of COOP action. MILLIONS Online Chopped Up Again For the second year in a row, the partypoker MILLIONS Online was chopped up by the final two players. This time, 'frenchsniperrr’ and ‘Lucio’ each ended up with a $2.2 million score. The official winner, ‘frenchsniperrr’, banked $2,2
  11. The state of Michigan is on the doorstep of legalizing and regulating online poker as well as mobile sports betting, daily fantasy sports, and online casino games after an all-encompassing package of iGaming bills passed through the Senate’s Regulatory Reform Committee and is headed to the Senate floor. If approved by the Senate, as it is expected to be, the return of online poker to Michigan will head to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law. If this all sounds familiar it’s because this is not the first time Michigan has been on the cusp of iGaming legalization. Just last year, a c
  12. Regulated online poker in the US made some leaps in 2019, and if the market can have a similar legislative year in 2020 as it did in 2019, things will be moving along quite nicely. In 2019, Pennsylvania online poker went live, West Virginia entered the regulated arena, and Michigan redeemed itself. Pennsylvania Goes Live As the saying goes, it’s better late than never. Following up on Pennsylvania’s regulation of online poker in late 2017, Kevin O’Toole, executive director of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, announced in April of 2019 that that PA online poker would go live on July 15.
