Online Poker Back in Pennsylvania on Bonfire Night

Happily for gamers, online poker has been legal in three US states: New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware.

Now there is a fourth: Pennsylvania. Bonfire Night is the big event to announce the news. Fireworks will mark the launch of online poker. It is expected that players will now flock to Mount Airy, a casino partner of PokerStars and other venues that offers poker-based games and casino-style entertainment.

Pumping up the poker industry

The poker industry has suffered in the US, declining by leaps and bounds. The return in the form of online games will surely resurrect spirits.

Blame delays on the regulators, but it is coming soon. Players will no longer be in a state of limbo. It has been a long and laborious wait.

Progress can be seen in Pennsylvania. Now The Keystone State can join the Multi-State Internet Gaming Association. This would bolster hopes of a nationwide return to virtual felt action.

Pennsylvania players had their appetites whetted with NLHE and PLO games. There is much more to come.

Watch for three key casino partnerships to influence the growth of poker in the state: PokerStars and Mount Airy Casino, partypoker and Valley Forge Casino Resort and 888 and WSOP.com and Caesars. They all hope to attract their loyal fan base back into the fold.

But don’t look for Zoom. However, a number of tournament formats will be available to players not seen eight years ago when the lights went out on Black Friday.

You might find progressive knockouts or hyper-turbos. Then, Sunday Majors might come back. Who knows what will come from interstate options, like New Jersey?
