New Jersey Senator Gives PokerStars March Deadline for Launch

pokerstarsPokerStars is a top provider of online poker gaming and continues to be a favorite among players from around the world. The brand provides online poker cash gaming and tournament action to players based in many areas except the US. PokerStars has been trying to get back into the US online poker market and has been looking at the state of New Jersey to get back in action.

According to Senator Ray Lesniak, New Jersey should expect PokerStars to be offering gaming by the month of March. For some time, PokerStars was trying to be approved for an online gaming license in the state but has been unable to do so with roadblock after roadblock. Once the brand was acquired by Amaya Gaming, the company had a better chance.

The regulators in New Jersey has since been reviewing the application of PokerStars once again, yet this has taken several months. Every time players felt that PokerStars was about to be launched, they wouldn’t.  Online Poker Report’s Chris Grove took to Twitter just two days ago and asked the Senator for any news on PokerStars and the Senator’s replay was March 2015.

Back in September of 2014 the Senator stated that PokerStars’ launch in the state would spark a revival in Atlantic City. The Senator stated that everyone should stay tuned for a ‘major announcement’. However, it was just after this announcement that PokerStars launch was delayed and a license was not approved.

For now, players in the state will have to wait and see if and win the top online poker brand will be available in the state of New Jersey. It seems that 2015 will be the year that PokerStars will reenter the United States online gaming market but only time will tell if this will be a realty or just an online poker players dream.
