Thursday July 4,2013 : POKERSTARS IN NEW DEAL WITH RESORTS CASINO HOTEL
Persistence pays off
PokerStars parent company The Rational Group's fortunes in the New Jersey market have turned following disappointment in the dissolution of a deal with Atlantic Club Casino Hotel as it announced an online gaming agreement with Resorts Casino Hotel, the first casino to open in Atlantic City, earlier today (Wednesday).
"This is another blue chip partner for Resorts to complete a wonderful series of brands – Mohegan Sun, Margaritaville and now PokerStars," said Morris Bailey, Resorts' Company Chairman.
"Resorts is a fantastic partner for us and we are looking forward to launch PokerStars in the U.S. in association with the other quality brands Resorts has brought to Atlantic City," said Mark Scheinberg, CEO of The Rational Group. "We are very happy to invest in New Jersey and we are excited about building a successful relationship with Resorts."
The agreement is pending approval by the New Jersey regulatory authorities.
