It’s only been two weeks since PokerStars first re-entered the USA Gambling Market through the state of New Jersey. Working alongside “Resorts Casino Hotel”, they launched their poker platform under a temporary license with the condition that in the near future they’ll receive their full license. Already they’ve seen a total of 5,600 players register and play on the platform. This is an incredible amount of punters to see within the first two weeks.
This doesn’t mean that Amaya Gaming, the new owners of PokerStars & Full Tilt are out of hot water as of yet. They’ve agreed to take on the task of riding the poker platforms of all of the illegal actions that were operated via this platform throughout 2006 to 2011. This could mean hefty fines in the future due to the Rational Group but those whom know the PokerStars brand know that regardless of the fines to possibly come, nothing but profit will arise afterwards.
Luckily though Amaya Gaming is a Canadian based company that has proven their honourability countless times in various online gambling markets. It’s for this reason and this reason alone that they were able to gain a gambling license in the state of New Jersey.
One of the most notable aspects towards them pertaining a license was that whomever had ties or worked previously with the rational group and were currently employed with Amaya Gaming had to be terminated. A total of five employee’s with terminated from their positions, once again showing that Amaya is willing to do what it takes to prove their honourability.
