Party On, Canada! All Three Party Brands Launch in Ontario

BetMGM, bwin, and partypoker bring the party to the Ontario online poker scene, creating the province's first shared player pool. Three skins really are better than one.

3 really is the magic number.

As reported on pokerfuse, partypoker and sister brand bwin have both launched online poker in Ontario.

The brands have linked up with BetMGM Poker Ontario, which launched last week to form a three-skin online poker network — the first shared player pool in the province.

The threesome will be sharing liquidity across cash games and tournaments.

“I am truly excited that all three of our Party brands are entering the Ontario market,” said Vic Walia, Managing Director of Party Brands in a press release. “Both recreational and professional players living in Ontario will be able to experience a world-class gaming product across poker, casino, and sports.”

For all the latest, keep tabs on pokerfuse, which will report on the all latest happenings in the Ontario online poker world.

Could PA, CT, or WV Be Next to Join Interstate Online Poker?

MI, NV, DE, & NJ are now all part of a compact that allows operators to merge player pools across state lines. Who's going to jump in next?

Michigan is in the process of joining the agreement that allows operators to combine their online poker player pools across state lines.

The Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement aka MSIGA currently comprises:

  • Delaware
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • Michigan (pending)

Now that Michigan is just waiting to dot the i’s and cross the t’s, industry experts are already talking about who could be next and all eyes are turning to:

  • Pennsylvania
  • Connecticut
  • West Virginia

All three have legal online poker, but only one has actually attracted operators — namely, Pennsylvania.

At the time of writing, none of these states have started proceedings to join the MSIGA though West Virginia did tell pokerfuse that they are considering it, but Michigan joining could prompt them to seriously reconsider.
