Something happened to PokerStars’ U.S.-facing product.
The poker site on Friday announced that its platform is inoperable in the ring-fenced markets of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. That’s everywhere the site operates legally within the United States.
“Due to unscheduled maintenance, all MTT’s have been cancelled until Monday at 10 am EST.
Our apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience,” PokerStars tweeted.
The company later had to clarify that the crash also involved cash games.
PokerStars provided a bit more details in another follow-up tweet.
“Since the maintenance is unscheduled, we aren’t able to provide any concrete time frames. Rest assured it is not a privacy concern, just some technical issues that popped up. The cashier should be available on our downloadable software.”
According to PokerStars, players could still log in and manage their accounts. Poker players in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey have plenty of other online poker sites to chose from.
