New Jersey Welcomes PokerStars

PokerStars, the largest online poker room, is coming back to the US. According to Amaya, the new owner of the brand, Pokerstars will start in the middle of March 2016. New Jersey players will be able to play at PokerStarsNJ.com and there will be live action as well at the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.
PokerStars is the top online casino website with excellent technology for all the heavy action its servers take. It looks to be an exciting period in poker. Resort Hotel is poised for growth with PokerStars in its umbrella top attractions.
Black Friday spelled the end of PokerStars in the US. It came around again with Governor Christie green lighting a scrupulous evaluation and a six month license to operate in NJ during the fall of 2015. There were some things to fix. PokerStars had to repay New Jersey players, remove some staff and report to the DGE, Division of Gaming Enforcement regularly. Could this be a reason PokerStars merged Full Tilt into Pokerstars? But Full Tilt was given a green light to operate as well but I’m sure its history dragged on the upbeat momentum PokerStars is going through.
The official start of PokerStars is March 21 with beta testing occurring sometime earlier. Everything should be in place by the official start date.
Game availability will not be the same as at the regular PokerStars site. For example, New jersey players won’t be able to play in the Sunday Million, WCOOP or SCOOP. The software is different. Will the new site offer the excitement of going for the big bucks of the main PokerStars remains to be seen.
PokerStarsNJ will have Spin and Gos, and casino games. There are allready hot tournaments llike a $25,000 Freeroll scheduled for March 27 at 5pm with the winner taking home $5,000. It’s a promising start for the return of poker in America!
