New Jersey State Senator Ray Lesniak thinks the Division of Gaming Enforcement will approve PokerStars within weeks not months.
“It’s going to be soon and it’s going to be huge,” he told PokerNews over the telephone.
This week PokerStars held two “meet and greets” in Atlantic City, handing out free nibbles to players invited from lists on its old customer databases.
Players were asked their opinions on tournament schedules, and were invited to give feedback on any topics that might concern them.
No New Jersey site offers fast fold poker, so the fact that PokerStars has just registered Zoom as a US trademark suggests that the game could be on its way.
Ray Lesniak is confident that PokerStars will grow the whole market—and not simply reduce the bit that other operators can compete for—it’s only three months to Xmas, will PokerStars be New Jersey’s Santa Claus?
