Partypoker in the USA
Under Roar Digital, a joint venture between MGM and partypoker parent company Entain (formerly known as GVC), the partypoker US Network posted big online poker gains in New Jersey and partypoker NJ played a key role in that.
Besides the network-wide Online Series in January, the partypoker US Network also ran the PKO Tournament Series from February 21 until February 28. The eight tournaments featured buy-ins ranging from $109 to $525 and more than $250,000 in guarantees. In February 2021, they also launched the free poker strategy learning tool “For the Player” in cooperation with LearnWPT.
There are also hopes that partypoker will expand into further regulated states including Pennsylvania and Michigan in 2021.
BetMGM launched its Casino and Sportsbook app on January 22, 2021 in Michigan. It is expected that the online poker platform will launch in the Wolverine State soon. An exact date for the second online poker brand to go live in MI has not been announced yet by the operator or the Michigan Gaming Control Board.
Furthermore, BetMGM has successfully launched in Pennsylvania with a sportsbook and online casino offering. BetMGM Casino PA currently also offers a huge $250,000 Leaderboard Promotion in the Keystone State. However, no details have been released so far concerning the arrival of the online poker platform.
Parent company Entain has also expanded its iGaming presence with the launch of a second online casino platform in Pennsylvania. Borgata Casino PA went live in late February 2021 and a new 100% Deposit Match up to $1,000 welcome offer was introduced for its platform in PA and NJ.
