Matt Primeaux, the President of Fox Bet, said: “The Championship of Online Poker, or COOP, is one of our most prestigious events, and we’re proud to give Pennsylvania its own. As, players in PA have already shown their excitement for PokerStars, so we took things to the next level with a $1 million series guarantee and plenty of ways to get in on the action.”

PokerStars PA Online Poker Championship – How to join

To participate in the PokerStars PA Online Poker Championship, players need to have PokerStars online account. New players can download the PokerStars PA mobile app on both Android and iOS devices from the PokerStars PA website.

However, a player has to be at least 21 years of age to register for PokerStars PA account. In addition, a player needs to provide Social Security Number (SSN) and US postal address while registering for an account.

Once a player login to PokerStars’ online account on website/mobile app, click on the ‘Tournaments’ tab to access the PokerStars PACOOP 2019 section. Whereas, to participate in the tournament and play real money games, players must be physically located within the borders of Pennsylvania.


The first-ever series held in NJ by PokerStars – NJSCOOP 2016 had over 54 tournaments and 1.1 million guaranteed prize money, which is higher in number of events and prize money than PACOOP.

PokerStars held its biggest tournament – NJSCOOP in the US market in April 2018 with a total guarantee of 1.3 million. Nevertheless, the series guarantee prize money has come down rapidly, with the recent tournament – NJCOOP in October seeing its total guarantee drop to $1 million.

In fact, Pennsylvania is the 6th most populous state in the US with a population of around 12.8 million. Whereas, New Jersey’s population count is around 8.9 million. Hence, PA has a 30% bigger potential pool. As a result, more players participate in PACOOP compared to NJCOOP.

In addition, considering the geographical location of PA, players from neighboring states (Maryland, Ohio, Delaware, New York, West Virginia, and New Jersey) expect to travel and participate in this tournament.  

Live tournament players in PA and NJ often attend events in both Atlantic City and Philadelphia. Hence, scheduling PACOOP just before or after NJCOOP rather than right alongside will allow committed tournament players to play both.


Pennsylvania’s first Online Poker room, PokerStars, already got enormous response from the PA players. With the announcement of the PokerStars PACOOP 2019 tournament, players are now more excited than ever. This tournament is expected to run successfully as similar events already held in New Jersey. Moreover, low satellite buy-ins and promotions should attract new players to try the platform and participate in the tournament.
