It hasn't changed, we're still banned from poker stars real money play here in America.

Some things never change in the "LAND OF THE FREE" (that's called "irony" and "sarcasm")...

P.S. As you watch all the cowards wearing their muzzles, don't forget the other line in our national anthem, "HOME OF THE BRAVE"... what a joke it all is. High comedy. There isn't a brave person left in this place anymore, just un-thinking people following our mis-leaders to our eventual doom.

Play well. :)

Make sure you wear two masks when you play poker and when you're driving alone in your car.

When the lockdown was enabled there was a significant increase of poker players on sites.
I think this number will lower again in summer when bunch of people go to holiday

There was a big impact back in the spring of 2020, when many countries went into some sort of lockdown mode. This led to a huge surge in volume in online poker. However as restrictions were lifted, it quickly crashed back to normal again. And even though many countries have again imposed some kind of restrictions during this winter, it has not led to another major boom. Volume is somewhat higher right now than january 2020, but its only something like 10-20%.

There are more players online, that's great! Offline brands that have migrated to the Internet en masse will understand the delights of a broader online presence and will not want to reduce it even after the quarantine is lifted.
Many live casino poker players who have never played this online will also understand the benefits and convenience of online poker. Already, many companies have felt the positive aspects of transferring their employees to a remote work schedule and will not give up on it. This could lead to an increase in audience, potentially similar to online entertainment.
The poker rooms will generate more profit, which means that they will be able to more effectively address the challenges they face and their presence in new markets.

How has online poker changed since Covid-19 and the lockdowns in your state?


Of course, the restrictions have changed a lot. I myself had been ill with covid, I was in the hospital, thank God I was cured ...

There have been some changes on the site where I play due to the Coronavirus. The number of visitors has grown significantly and the site sometimes just started to fall. I was registered in the tournament and it just canceled during the game and all the players were given an equal share of the prize pool based on their current stack. So I won 2 cents.
