Atlantic Club Wynn's next purchase?

Atlantic Club, Wynn's next purchase?

Right after it was known that Wynn Interactive had requested an iGaming license in New Jersey, speculations arose immediately about what his real intentions were. One of them pointed out that Wynn might be interested in buying the land-based Atlantic Club Casino Hotel, casino which has not yet announced a partnership to run an Internet gambling project.

The casino, which has been in the news repeatedly, has proved to have an outstanding attraction to possible buyers. Earlier this year, it was revealed that PokerStars signed up a contract to purchase the business for $15 million. However, the deal never took place as PokerStars didn't obtain a gambling license from New Jersey regulators prior to the date stipulated. PokerStars then partnered up with one of Atlantic City's land-based casinos, Resorts, Inc.
