Enjoy Loads of PKO Action at PokerStars Ontario This Weekend

The upcoming weekend brings a host of PKO action over at PokerStars Ontario as a part of the ongoing ONSCOOP series.

As you might be aware, the first-ever ONSCOOP is in full swing over at PokerStars Ontario, and, as is usually the case with poker series, the best and richest action is reserved for the weekends.

If you’re a fan of the progressive knockout (PKO) format, you’ll love the ONSCOOP schedule for the upcoming Saturday and Sunday, as it is filled with valuable tournaments with good guarantees to keep you busy.

On Saturday, Apr 1, there are three quality PKO events spread across all three orbits. Buy-ins are CAD $20, $100, and $500, and all three tournaments feature solid guarantees of $6500, $24,000, and $22,000, respectively.

  • Medium Orbit: $100 buy-in and $45,000 GTD
  • High Orbit: $1000 buy-in and $48,000 GTD

There is another set of Battle Royale PKO tournaments later in the day, with buy-ins of $10, $50, and $300 and more than respectable guarantees across the board.

PokerStars Ontario Still Leading the Way in Player Numbers

PokerStars Ontario averaged 280 active concurrent cash game seats in March, putting it firmly in the number one spot for player traffic in the province.

PokerStars Ontario has now been open for business for nine months in the Canadian province. Over that period, the operator has proven time and time again that it has what it takes to maintain that coveted number-one spot despite the harsh competition.

According to the most recent data, the operator holds a market share of 42% and remains significantly ahead of the other regulated poker sites in terms of player traffic.

In March, PokerStars Ontario maintained an average of 280 active cash game seats, ahead of WSOP/GGPoker Ontario’s 220 and BetMGM Poker’s 128 seats. The player traffic at PokerStars saw a slight decline compared to February, when the average was 320 concurrent seats.

So, if you’re looking for a site that offers constant action across all stakes, join PokerStars Ontario and get involved. The operator also hosts regular tournament series, and these events regularly break their guarantees, so things are looking good in the MTT department, too.

2023 Is the Year of Tournament Series for PokerStars Ontario

PokerStars Ontario has hosted several successful tournament series in 2023 already, and it seems likely this trend will continue for the rest of the year.

PokerStars Ontario has gone all out on tournament series this year. Since the start of 2023, the operator has successfully hosted about half a dozen series, with several of them featuring seven-figure guaranteed amounts.

Looking at the numbers, there is plenty of interest among the players in the province. While occasional events have featured slight overlays, almost all PokerStars Ontario series this year have met and even handsomely exceeded their guaranteed numbers.

Right now, the operator is hosting its first-ever SCOOP series in Ontario (ONSCOOP), and that should keep everyone busy for the first ten days of April.

While we don’t know what’s coming after, the operator seems set to make 2023 the year of tournaments. So, make sure to sign up for your account, and don’t miss out on exciting action and big guarantees waiting in the pipeline!
