Written By: Maya Michaels | July 20, 2020 | Posted In Poker News

Recently, there has been a serious online poker boom amidst the COVID-19 crisis. 

Online poker market has seen the record numbers past few months, however, as things are returning to normal, we can see that the numbers are also going back to how they used to be before the global lockdowns.

The New Jersey online poker has dropped 22% from May to June. Online poker operators brought in $3.5 million in revenue. Even though that total is down month over month, this is still double the revenue this time last year.

WSOP.com still holds the first place in the highest poker revenue. The site totalled $1.3 million in June, up 61% year over year but down 17.7% from May.

The site’s bracelet series, WSOP Online is expected to bring big numbers for WSOP.com in July’s report.

PartyPoker and its BorgataPoker.com and BetMGM skins combined for $914,503 in June. Even with the lowest revenue of the poker operators, the site saw the highest percentage growth year over year.

The site also saw the smallest decline month over month. Partnering with the World Poker Tour in June for a big series surely added to the site’s totals.

PokerStars ended the month with $1.2 million in revenue, which is a 129% increase year over year.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reported that PokerStars brought in $3.2 million in revenue in June.

PokerStars is currently the only operator Keystone State, but that looks to be changing soon. Partypoker looks to enter the market in August, with WSOP.com also debuting by the fall.

As for Delaware, online poker had its first $1 million since launching in 2013. 

June numbers declined, but still ended up at $964,606, the second biggest month of online poker revenue to date. 888poker offers the only online poker platform through an agreement with the state.
