PokerStars Michigan & New Jersey Player Pools to Merge January 1, 2023

It’s an exciting time to be a PokerStars player in the USA, with the announcement today that from January 1, 2023 players in both Michigan and New Jersey will play together on a shared platform.

This makes PokerStars the first operator to announce shared liquidity in these states.

“Michigan and New Jersey joining forces is great news for our players in these two states, and poker, more generally,” said PokerStars US Managing Director, Severin Rasset. “As it promises a better experience and even more value, all with the confidence provided by a trusted, licensed operator.”

The occasion will be marked by two special tournaments on New Year’s Day, with $150,000 in guaranteed prize pools.

Shared Platform, Same Stars Experience

PokerStars NJ has been operating since 2016, while PokerStars Michigan only came online in January 2021. Now, this shared liquidity will see players from both states have access to the same PokerStars software, all backed by industry-leading security and gaming integrity tools.

“Our community will experience more breadth and depth of games,” said Rasset. “More tournaments with bigger prizes to win, amped-up promotions, and more choice.

“To kick start, we are offering generous guarantees on our debut multi-state tournaments, that will no doubt provide lots of value for those who take to the tables.”

Rasset went on to say that PokerStars had worked closely with the regulators of New Jersey and Michigan, and that he hoped more states will follow this example in the future.
