Poker allegedly coming soon for months

Online gambling went live in Pennsylvania on July 15. But poker was not included in the initial offerings of real-money games. “Coming soon,” operators said.
A rumor circulated that PokerStars could go live with online poker in Pennsylvania during the week of Aug. 26.
The PGCB shot down the rumor.

PGCB spokesperson Doug Harbach stated:

The PGCB does not have any testing scheduled for this week. Mount Airy and PokerStars are working toward launching sports wagers and online products (slots, tables, poker).  However, at this point,  I do not know if they will be testing all of their different products at the same time or at different times.
