Players headed to Philadelphia casinos – Live! Casino Philadelphia and Rivers Philadelphia -should remember to pack a mask and their vaccine card. Starting on Jan. 3 proof of vaccination mandate goes into effect for the city. 

“I am not a huge fan of masks, but I am also not a fan of getting sick,” says New Jersey poker player Jeff Barton. “ So if I can play poker poker and avoid sickness, then it’s a win”

PlayPennsylvania wants to remind players to treat dealers with respect. When it comes to mask policies, dealers are only enforcing the rules set in place by the casino, city and state.
