PokerStars Still Left Off Of New Jersey Approval List

With legalized internet gambling in New Jersey coming this week, internet poker firm PokerStars still has not been approved to offer internet betting in the state, leading industry insiders to believe that there may be an underlying reason why the group has not been okayed.

PokerStars is partnering with Resorts Hotel Casino and apparently will not be given the go-ahead to offer internet betting by the time the state's soft launch begins on November 21st. The group previously had a difficult time gaining a New Jersey gaming license earlier this year when it tried to purchase the Atlantic Club casino, and it is unknown whether or not the same issue is holding up this latest approval.

Another potential reason for the lack of approval is the possibility that there may be something wrong with the gaming application that PokerStars and Resorts have submitted.

Caesars Entertainment was also left off the primary approval list for e-Gaming, but it appears that the casino will be given the go-ahead when the next list is released on November 20th.
