888poker Poised for Pennsylvania Move

Friday, 1 May 2015

One of Europe's leading online poker operators, 888poker, is readying itself for a move into Pennsylvania as soon as local regulators implement new gaming laws according to reports in the US media.

As it stands, Pennsylvannia is in a state of indecision with regards to online poker, but many believe that legislation is just around the corner.

Picking up on this vibe and not wanting to miss an opportunity, 888poker has reportedly signed a deal with Mount Airy Casino Resort to provide software services through its All American Poker Network. This partnership means that the brick and mortar venue will be poised to open its own online poker site once igaming is given the green light.

As it stands, 888poker already has a base in Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware and if it can open a new portal in Pennsylvania it will be one of the largest operators within the US. As well as offering its own branded sites, 888 provides network and software services for live casinos in each regulated state; a dynamic which makes it the most influential companies within the US industry.

According to the terms of the deal, the partnership between 888poker and Mount Airy is non-exclusive, which means the former will be able to link up with other companies in Pennsylvania should it wish to do so.

As well as being one of the first online poker operators to go live in Pennsylvania if and when the market goes live, 888 will also be set to provide casino games. Through its network, the company has a range of igaming options, which means Mount Airy will benefit from a complete suite of games when regulation is passed.
