US.- New Jersey’s players will be celebrating the extension of the deal that the state agreed with Amaya, operator of major PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker gambling platforms. New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) approved another 6-month partnership with Amaya to operate in the state’s regulated real money online market. The deal can be further extended, whilst the Canadian brand is going through rough times with the legal investigation of the CEO, David Baazov.

First agreement between the authorities was granted on September 30 of last year. Less than two weeks ago, PokerStars New Jersey reopened the gambling services in the state turning the poker corporation into one of the fastest companies to achieve the growth of the online market. Players have been showing interest in the brand which is becoming a leader in the sector.

“While it’s very early, we’re extremely pleased with the initial launch of PokerStars in New Jersey and the positive working relationship that Amaya has with the DGE. I’m very proud of our employees, including those we have hired in New Jersey, who have worked diligently to prepare for the launch of a robust, stable platform backed by great customer service. We hope to continue our early positive momentum in the market as PokerStars NJ continues to roll out additional marketing and promotions.” commented Rafi Ashkenazi, Amaya Interim CEO.
