Pokerstars closes deal with Resorts Casino Hotel

Pokerstars closes deal with Resorts Casino Hotel

Not long after attempting to buy out the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel in New Jersey (the deal eventually fell out because of opposition by the American Gaming Association), Pokerstars once again made headlines when they announced a new deal to purchase another casino.

This time the casino in question is the Resorts Casino Hotel, which will now offer online gaming via the online poker giant. The deal will be final once approved by New Jersey's state regulators.

Pokerstars has been through some rough times in the United States, especially after the online poker crackdown of 2011 commonly known as Black Friday. But the company has since regained its foothold within the industry and has made a deal with the US DOJ to settle all charges of fraud  and money laundering. This time the company seems to have a legitimate foothold in the US market.
