PokerStars’ triumphant return to the US

PokerStars will come back recharged to provide clients the best version of its games, security services and betting experiences across desktop, tablet and mobile platforms.

Canada.- In March 21st, New Jersey will enable one of the biggest online poker portals –PokerStars– to operate in its markets. Gaming industry regulation in the state has been strengthening its relationships with operators to exploit the businesses in a broad sector. Last September, New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement authorised Amaya –Canadian owner of PokerStars and Full Tilt poker– to return to the states to bring customers the most famous services of online gambling.

Since the controversy of Black Friday, the brand was banned from the US and Isai Scheinberg had to sell it to Amaya two years ago. Now, that there’s water under the bridge, Scheinberg re-bought it with David Baazov, current Amaya’s CEO, and the company could amplify its markets again. Now PokerStars will offer American markets the same impeccable portfolio the company is expanding throughout the world.

“PokerStars is the global leader in online poker and trusted by its customers for its robust and innovative technology, world-class security and game-integrity.  We are honored and excited to now bring these experiences to New Jersey,” stated Baazov. Resorts Casino will be the key partner for the operation in New Jersey, as the state’s law establishes that online companies must work with land-based ones. “We expect that the launch of PokerStars will further spur the positive momentum we have already made in the New Jersey online gambling market,” stated Morris Bailey, Resorts Casino owner, in a release.
