The world’s largest Internet poker company plans to return to the United States online gambling market next month. PokerStars will begin operations in New Jersey on March 21.
PokerStars will be entering into the market with two competitors Borgata and bwin.party who they have the largest market share with over 50 percent of the revenue, while Caesar’s and online partner 888 have the rest. The market in New Jersey appears to generate a steady amount of roughly $2 million per month. It remains to be seen whether the entrance of PokerStars has a material effect on that total but stars fans are optimist.
If you have held a PokerStars account in the past you can create a new PokerStars NJ account using your existing User ID and password. Former players will even receive a Play Money chip balance and StarsCoin (formerly Frequent Player Points) balance based on your playing history.
David Baazov, CEO of Amaya : “PokerStars is the global leader in online poker and trusted by its customers for its robust and innovative technology, world-class security and game integrity,” he said in the ABC News story. “We are honored and excited to now bring these experiences to New Jersey.” In celebration of the long-awaited return of PokerStars to New Jersey a freeroll with a $25,000 added prize pool will run on March 27.
