Currently PA residents only have access to Americas Cardroom and a handful of other sites licensed outside the state.  PokerStars has obtained a license from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).

The Stars Group has partnered with Mount Airy Lodge Casino in the Poconos. 

“We’re excited to take this next step as The Stars Group looks to broaden its presence in the United States,” said Matt Primeaux, SVP Strategy & Operations, USA at The Stars Group said at the time the partnership was announced. “In partnership with Mount Airy Casino Resort, we believe we’re well positioned to capitalize on opportunities in the Commonwealth by bringing our world leading offerings to Pennsylvania players.”

In theory they should be.  The Stars Group and others allowed Draftkings and FanDuel to eat their lunch in neighboring New Jersey when sports betting became legalized.  Those two companies account for nearly three quarters of the sports gambling sector in the Garden State. 

The Stars Group has already joined forces with Fox Sports and will soon be launching their FoxBet sports wagering site.
