BetMGM Poker And Borgata Poker Launch In Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania online poker market welcomed two new legal online poker sites on Tuesday. BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker are now live in Pennsylvania, joining PokerStars PA as choices for regulated online poker in the state.

BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker will operate as individual online skins, but the player pools at each can compete against each other. Both sites are powered by partypoker software, as the partypoker US Network and BetMGM function as partners under the Roar Digital brand.

BetMGM and Borgata Poker bring two more full-scale legal online poker sites to Pennsylvania players. The game selection at BetMGM/Borgata poker includes cash games that run around the clock, including No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha.

The BetMGM/Borgata Poker network also brings the brand’s fastforward (fast-fold) cash games, as well as SPINS (jackpot sit & gos) to the Pennsylvania market.

Pennsylvania’s tournament players can look forward to a schedule that includes a solid roster of 70 tournaments. As per tradition in the world of online poker, Sundays mark the biggest day of the week for tournament players.

BetMGM and Borgata Poker highlight the Sunday schedule with the Sunday $40k guaranteed, which offers the biggest prize pool of any weekly tournament on the network.

Outlook For BetMGM And Borgata Poker In Pennsylvania

The arrival of the BetMGM/Borgata Poker network adds another major player to Pennsylvania’s online poker market. PokerStars PA launched in November 2019 and since then has operated as the lone regulated online poker site in the Keystone State.

Pennsylvania plays home to a robust live poker economy, and in the online realm, PokerStars PA draws some of the highest traffic of any regulated poker site in the US. The debut of BetMGM/Borgata Poker adds another online option in Pennsylvania, and the state’s poker players can look forward to major tournament series coming to the network.

Both BetMGM Poker and Borgata Poker operate in New Jersey as well, under the partypoker US Network banner. Partypoker’s partnership with the World Poker Tour brings New Jersey-only WPT online events to that network on a regular basis.

A WPT Main Tour event ran on the partypoker US Network in New Jersey last December. The $3,500 buy-in tournament offered a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, making it one of the biggest online tournaments in the history of regulated online poker in the US.

Much like PokerStars PA runs the biannual Championship of Online Poker and other Pennsylvania-only series, BetMGM and Borgata poker should bring no shortage of special events for Pennsylvania players.

Signing up at BetMGM Poker or Borgata poker unlocks a 100% deposit match bonus up to $600, with an additional $25 in free credits on the house. Another deposit bonus on tap for new players includes a separate 100% deposit match up to $50, which runs through May 8.
