Online Poker On The Up

As Easter plans are on hold for most people around the globe, online poker is seeing a resurgence in all markets, and Pennsylvania is no exception.

Here you can see how online poker is seeing an uptick due to the effects of the global pandemic that is seeing countries encouraging people to stay at home.

In the dot-com market, PokerStars has upped its guarantee to its Sunday Million weekly tournament to $2.5 million due to the increase in demand, created by more players staying at home and logging on to play online poker.

This is the first time in ten years that the guarantee has been that high.

PASCOOP will conclude on April 20.
