A new, week-long poker series gives gamblers in Pennsylvania another opportunity to consider.

Starting Sunday, July 17 and running to the following Sunday, BetMGM Online Casino Pennsylvania is unfurling its Summer Classic July headline poker series.

The week-long tournaments (25 events over eight days), announced late Tuesday,  will run simultaneously across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Michigan, with more than $540,000 in guarantees.

Online poker is legal in only those three states, as well as Delaware, Nevada, Connecticut and West Virginia.

Of those states, only Nevada, does not also offer real money online casinos.

“We’re excited to follow-up on the momentum we gathered in Las Vegas through this month’s online event, the Summer Classic,” said Luke Staudenmaier, director of poker for BetMGM, in a news release. “The Classic, which spotlights America’s pastime, features buy-in levels and game variants for all players.”

There have been poker tournaments run by BetMGM in July before, but this is the first one branded as Summer Classic.

Last month’s BetMGM Poker Championship, the event held in partnership with ARIA, was the second in-person event of the year (following March Poker Mania, which was held online but also had live components at MGM Grand Detroit and Borgata in Atlantic City).

To participate in any of the Summer Classic tournaments, players must be physically located in the Keystone State (BetMGM Poker, Borgata Poker).
