    Question Should PokerStars be allowed to operate a casino in Atlantic City?

    In January PokerStars filed papers with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement seeking regulatory approval to buy the Atlantic Club from Resorts International Holdings. Ownership of a casino in Atlantic City is a requirement to operate an online gambling site in the state of New Jersey under the new law allowing online gambling in that state.

    Earlier this week, the American Gaming Association submitted a legal brief to the New Jersey Casino Control Commission stating that PokerStars should be banned from purchasing the Atlantic Club casino in Atlantic City because it "operated a business with a history of intentional, uninterrupted criminal violations."

    You can see the legal brief on the APCW website here: AGA brief in opposition to petition of PokerStars for interim casino authorization.

    Do you think New Jersey gaming regulators will allow PokerStars to purchase the Atlantic Club casino in Atlantic City? Should they be allowed to?

    If they are buying a property I have no problem with them opening a casino. After Black Friday PokerStars is the only one that really made things right to the players or am I mistaken? Now if FullTilt were applying I wold say no way!

    I don't see why they shouldn't be allowed to - especially seeing as they're so buddy-buddy with the DOJ and having been playing good-two-shoes after their slap on the wrist.

    Besides, I think it would be hard in the current climate to turn down a buttload of money coming into the state, money talks, and all that..

    Then again a lot of these lawmakers are idiots so who knows.

    Pokerstars has met the conditions to get a license in several European countries.
    They will also meet the requirements to get a license in New Jersey. I don't think that the New Jersey regulators will block the approval to buy the casino.

    They should get the approval. I don't really see what the problem is, the past shouldn't be a factor here.

    Hello,

    the proportion of German players at PokerStars dwindles. Instead PokerStars is heard more and more often "Joker Stars".

    Many players have become tired of joining SNG tables with 10 players...
    Eight coming from Eastern European countries or Vietnam.

    Poker Stars paid up, and paid up for Full Tilt, I really don't see an issue. Only reason it will be blocked is if a protectionist competitor drops a big fat bribe on the regulators desks.......
