About

Poker Alliance is an organization dedicated to advancing the sport of poker on behalf of poker players 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 poker players to legislators, courts, policymakers, and the media to ensure legal and healthy competition.  We also work with casinos, poker companies, and others to ensure you have a safe, fun, and fair game, whenever and wherever you decide to play.

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.

Over the last 15 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 the industry. Reporters take our calls and count on us as a credible resource in the discussion about poker.

Online poker is the 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.
