Good news on the Pennsylvania online gaming front. Jamie Staples gets a promotion from PokerStars, while another Team Online member quits. RAWA not a priority for GOP candidates.
The recent rumors of the demise of the online gambling bill have been greatly exaggerated, according to the architect of the bill, Pennsylvania Representative John Payne. Recent reports signaling the death of the state’s online gambling bill are a bit premature and somewhat out of context, since iGaming was never meant to be part of the state’s budget, and was only added as a Hail Mary to end the state’s budget stalemate.
In an interview with Online Poker Report, Payne explained the current situation in Pennsylvania, and why early 2016 is the best possibility for the PA legislature to pass an online gambling bell.
Twitch sensation Jamie “Stapes” Staples has been promoted by PokerStars. Staples no longer appears on the PokerStars website as a “Friend of PokerStars” as he is now a full Team Online Pro, one of the highest honors in poker, and also one of the most difficult to attain.
A lot of Staples success and popularity stem from his Twitch Channel, where, along with fellow PokerStars Team Pro member Jason Somerville, he’s become one of the faces of poker Twitch streamers.
When it comes to poker sponsorships, Twitch success in 2015 appears to be akin to winning multiple major tournaments in 2005.
