Ultimate Poker, which is the only legal poker room in Nevada or in the whole America is going to join its hands with Trump Taj Mahal to bring online poker in the state of New Jersey. This online poker room which is owned by Station Casinos has signed a deal with Trump Taj Mahal Associates LLC according to which poker lovers can play real money online poker in the state.
New Jersey Department of Gaming and Enforcement (DGE) has indicated in the past that all the gaming venues (read casinos) will require an interactive gaming license, which will allow casinos to join hands with online poker rooms. It’ll benefit the casinos as after these kind of mergers they will also be able to generate more revenues through online poker.
Tom Breitiling, Chairman Ultimate Gaming has said in his statement that,” Today we are excited to be entering into an arrangement with Trump Taj Mahal Associates to bring online gaming to New Jersey. This represents a huge step forward in our desire to offer Americans across the nation the opportunity to enjoy safe and regulated online games”.
Ultimate Poker is the first legalized online poker room which was launched on April 30. Its launch was a huge affair as thousands of poker fans was awaiting for a legalize poker room since April 2011, when all the online poker rooms were banned from US Soil. This poker room is expecting some tough competition in future as Caesars Entertainment is planning to launch World Series of Poker- branded real money online poker site in this month.
This legalize online gaming in New Jersey is expected to kick off in the month of November, though DGE has not confirmed the exact date. It’ll allow online gambling to all the residents of the state plus anyone who is within the border of the state.
