The third installment of PokerStars Pennsyl-MANIA has been announced to take place this weekend (December 27th) and is expected to be the biggest one yet.
PokerStars PA has revealed that there will be a guaranteed prize pool of $500k, which is the largest online poker prize ever offered in the state.
Buy-in is $200, and participants have the option to re-enter a total of five times during late registration. It is a no-limit hold 'em tournament.
The first time PokerStars held Pennsyl-MANIA, the prize pool was set at $250k. There were almost 3,000 entries, causing the pool to double to $515,964, also record-breaking.
In August during the second part of Pennsyl-MANIA, PokerStars PA had a $350k guarantee which rose to $375k after more than 2,000 entries came in.
On top of the $500k guarantee, PokerStars is also offering the first-ever side event.
At 6:30 p.m. ET, players can participate in the "High Roller" which requires a $1,000 buy-in and has a $50k guarantee prize pool.
Players can re-enter a total of 3 times and the winner will be crowned Sunday night.
There will also be Satellites available to try and earn your way into the largest online poker tournament in the history of Pennsylvania, starting at $10 buy-ins.
Previous Pennsyl-MANIA players will also recognize the Depositor Freeroll option.
Users who have an account with PokerStars PA can make a deposit of at least $30 on the site and use the promo code MANIA, to receive an entry to the Depositor Freeroll.
The tournament starts at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday (27th) and will reward the top 50 finalists with a seat in Pennsyl-MANIA III.
PokerStars teamed up with Mount Airy Casino to launch its online platform in 2019 and has hosted numerous large online poker tournaments over the last year.
A few include the PASCOOP, PACOOP, Bounty Builder, and Winter and Summer Series.
Since PokerStars launched in Pennsylvania, over a year ago, they have remained the only operator to offer both an online casino platform and poker site.
However, this is expected to change in 2021.
BetMGM has recently launched an online casino in PA and is rumored to be bringing its NJ poker platform, partypoker, over very soon.
WSOP.com, the largest poker site in the country, is also expected to debut in the state by 2021.
