PokerStars PA shows great results in cash game traffic
Pennsylvania has become the fourth state in the USA (along with Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey), where it’s now absolutely legal to play poker on the Internet. It was a long process, but on November 6, the PokerStars PA client was finally launched.
The state welcomed PokerStars with open arms, and the evidence of this is high poker traffic in the PA room. The client operates only within one month, but the results are really impressive, especially at cash game tables. Players' activity is much higher than in all the networks, which are regulated in the US, put together.
The average number of cash games played simultaneously in the PA client within the first days of launch reached the mark of 400, and up to now, the traffic has grown significantly.
As for the tournaments, the situation is pretty similar. Despite the traffic is a bit less there, tournaments are also popular among players in Pennsylvania. In addition, on November 30, PokerStars ran the Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker 2019 that probably caused such a big activity in the poker room.
In respect of traffic, PokerStars PA now shows best results on the market among all poker platforms regulated in the US. If we compare PokerStars NJ at its time of launching, then the difference is obvious: there were about 160 seats active at NJ cash tables. Now Pokerstars PA has 3 times bigger traffic than PokerStars NJ had after the first month of operating.
It goes without saying that Stars launched the PA client in a very advantageous time of the year, as winter months are peak by traffic for online poker. These results may, of course, reduce towards the summer (as it usually happens at all poker platforms), but PokerStars stays optimistic as they plan to add new games like Spin & Go and Zoom in the future, as well various promotions to retain the players.
