With one pen stroke on October 30th, 2017, former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf made the Keystone State the fourth to sanction online gambling, including online poker in PA. Beforehand, only Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey were the only exceptions. The passage of Pennsylvania House Bill 271 enabled PA's land-based casinos, including truck stops, to profit from real money online poker.
PokerStars made history on November 4th, 2019, as the first online poker Pennsylvania casino. Today, only Nevada generates more casino revenue than PA, including online gambling. Online poker tournaments such as PokerStars' wildly successful Spring Championship reigns in online gamblers with a $200k prize.
PA poker sites like BetMGM and Bogata Poker joined the PA online poker scene in 2021. As Party Poker stalwarts, BetMGM and Bogata Poker consistently rank as the best online poker sites in PA thanks to poker apps and exceptional Daily C-Note tournaments. And with the addition of WSOP.com a few months later, Pennsylvanians, from the comfort of their living room, have four elite PA poker sites.
