A very much anticipated sporting event of this year will take place on the Las Vegas Strip in November and two companies have partnered up to offer each of their audiences a unique experience.

PokerStars announced this week it will be bringing in Oracle Red Bull Racing promotions, rewards and experiences to three states in where they operate: Michigan, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

This is good news for Pennsylvania online poker fans.

PokerStars Red Spade Pass

The highlight will be PokerStars Red Spade Pass.

It was specifically launched last year for its European audiences; players won amazing experiences to Monaco and Brazil to experience Formula One racing first-hand, featuring a personal meet and greet with the Oracle Red Bull Racing team, such as driver Sergio Perez and Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner.

That experience will now travel overseas to the U.S. audience of PokerStars via a series of Oracle Red Bull Racing themed games, just in time for when F1 races in Las Vegas, Nov. 16-18.

The inaugural Vegas race will wind its way over a 3.8-mile course that will take drivers past the fronts of the Bellagio, Caesars Palace, the Venetian and even the newly opened and eye-catching MSG Sphere.

This season, PokerStars is offering its U.S. players the chance to win an incredible debut experience called the Red Spade Pass Vegas.

The lucky winner (plus one guest) will win a trip to Las Vegas in November, which will include round trip flights, transfers, and a five-night stay at the Paris Las Vegas.

How To Race in Pennsylvania?

PokerStars Casino Races launched on July 13 and will have weekend race prizes for PA online casino players of $5,000 ($5,000 Michigan, $2,500 New Jersey) and weekly leaderboard prizes of $500 ($1,000 MI, NJ). Players can opt-in and register via the Casino Races lobby. Registration is free and without any buy-in or entry fee.  

U.S. players will also be able to take part in PokerStars Spin & Go Races through Aug. 26 with weekly prizes of $5,000 to be won. Players can win in just a matter of minutes for as little as $1. Players can opt-in weekly, which can be done via the Spin & Go Lobby, the Leaderboard Lobby, or at the Spin & Go tables.

Players can also view a YouTube video produced by PokerStars called “Between the Lines,” which draws a connection between poker and auto racing.

“There is much crossover between the interests of our players and general racing fans, and we want to feed those passions with exciting promotions and memorable moments,” said Rebecca McAdam Willetts, director of partnerships & PR for PokerStars, in a press release.

“Racing has grown hugely in popularity across North America, and with so much attention on our partner’s efforts this season, we’re very excited our community in the U.S. will get a slice of the action as the season reaches boiling point. The partnership has been a perfect fit for us to date, and now we get to take it home, to the heart of the action … Vegas!” 

Red Bull has been the top team in the F1 series for a few years and has been especially dominant in 2023, having won all 10 races run so far. Two-time defending world champion Max Verstappen has won a whopping eight of them this year, including six in a row.

Keep it dialed to for casino and sports betting news as well as for PA online casino bonuses.
