Monday August 12,2013 : PADDY POWER GEARING UP FOR NEW JERSEY ONLINE GAMBLING
UK gambling group plans to add to its Nevada online poker licence
UK land and online gambling group Paddy Power, already in possession of a Nevada intrastate online poker licence, has ambitions in New Jersey as well, and has submitted an application for a wider online gambling licence in that state, a company spokesman told the Irish Times over the weekend.
"We want to make sure that we're in place and ready," said communications director Paddy Power, the son of company founder David Power. "We have applied for the licence to be in there, and we'll then see what is viable. We're putting ourselves in position."
Power added that the company has a small team on the ground, led by Eamonn Toland as president of gambling and casinos in North America with a brief to identify opportunities there.
