Online Poker Sites Get New Jersey Approval
Firms Such As 888, Bwin.Party Snag The OK This Week
A handful of well-known Internet betting firms were given the OK on Friday by New Jersey gaming regulators to soon offer games to those physically within the state.
The Division of Gaming Enforcement released a couple of documents (here and here) that said firms such as Bwin.party, Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Ultimate Poker, 888, Bally Technologies, Betfair, Paddy Power and Amaya Gaming are allowed to do business in the Garden State.
Most technologies firms will be doing business on behalf of their brick-and-mortar partners.
There are 12 casinos in Atlantic City and most are expected to offer web gambling.
New Jersey will kick off statewide web gambling on Nov. 26. The soft trial will begin Nov. 21.
PokerStars was notably absent from the lists, and a spokesperson for the firm explained why:
“Our application remains under review by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and we remain committed to working with them to complete the process,” Eric Hollreiser, Head of Corp Communications for PokerStars, said in a statement.
PokerStars has partnered with the Resorts Casino Hotel.
New Jersey will allow its casinos to offer a wide array of casino games on the web.
