PokerStars Pennsylvania will be treating its customers in the state to some action-packed poker gaming thanks to the return of Pennsyl-MANIA, the largest poker tournament in the state. The event will be returning for the third time on Sunday, December 27 with a record-breaking guaranteed prize pool of a whopping $500,000.

The tournament will run for a total of 2 days starting from Sunday, December 27 at 5 p.m. ET with players having the chance to re-enter as many as five times during late registration. Arguably the most notable event will be the $1,000 buy-in High Roller that will go down Sunday, Dec. 27 at 6:30 p.m. ET. It is quite special because it is the very first Pennsyl-MANIA side event in the history of online poker in the Keystone State.
