Summer Series adds to growing online poker momentum in US market

The Summer Series comes as PokerStars continues notching record revenues in Pennsylvania. The site is fresh off the Pennsy-Mania one-off tournament that became the biggest online tournament in the state to date.

The $200 event featured a $250,000 guarantee and attracted a field of 2,774 entries. The prize pool swelled to $515,964 – typifying the massive turnout for major online events the last few months.

In March, the company set a PA online poker record with $3.1 million in revenue. April’s total of $5.3 million then smashed that. May revenues are expected to be released soon.

The company remains the only operator in the state. However, WSOP.com officials confirmed to USPoker in May that it’s currently in the regulatory and licensing process. Partypoker is also believed to be interested in offering poker in the state.

A growing field of online poker events

Other major operators have also been getting in the act. WSOP.com just concluded its Online Circuit Season Finale with 12 championship rings awarded.

The WSOP has also announced 85 online bracelets will be awarded this summer. The WSOP Online series kicks off July 1 and will serve NJ and Nevada players. GGPoker will then offer events to an international audience beginning on July 19.

The WPT and partypoker also recently announced the WPT Online Poker Open for players in New Jersey. The series runs June 21-28 with 12 events and a $370,000 overall guarantee.

The $400 championship on June 28 features a $300,000 guaranteed. The champion earns a nice WPT trophy as well as an $11,000 travel package to play in the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

Sweepstakes poker site Global Poker recently announced its own Summer Series as well. The festival features 45 Sweeps Coin events for a guarantee of more than SC2.1 million.

It’s a good time to be an online poker player in the US. As states begin to open up, it will be interesting to see how the numbers shake out. In the meantime, there is plenty of action online with plenty of tournaments and cash games.
