About

Poker Alliance (formerly known as The PPA) is the largest and most influential advocacy organization focused on advancing the interests of the poker playing community. The PPA created a voice for the millions of Americans who want to protect consumers, preserve the rights of states, and allow poker players to play poker where and when they choose.

We are an organization dedicated to advancing the sport of poker on behalf of the poker playing community in the United States and around the world.  Whether you are playing in a neighbor’s backyard, at a casino, or via the internet – we want your game to be safe, legal and fair.  We represent the needs of many to ensure legal and healthy competition.

Over the last 13 years, we have gained credibility with policymakers and the press as the best resource for connecting with poker players. Policymakers take our meetings and call on us for testimony, counsel and to represent the players and also the industry. Reporters take our calls and count on us as a credible resource in the discussion about poker.

Online poker is a central issue for Poker Alliance. To date, four states have authorized internet poker/gaming. Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware have been operating for several years and Pennsylvania is expected to launch its regulated iGaming market later this year. Several states are currently considering bills to regulate internet poker and iGaming.  Poker Alliance will be the voice for millions of Americans who are in favor of expanding the sporting world of poker.
