PokerStars is set for a bold return next month as the online poker giant will officially re-enter the U.S. gaming market on March 21st.
The Amaya-owned company previously exited the U.S. market in 2011.
“For now, only PokerStars customers physically located within New Jersey’s borders will be able to use its platform to gamble online in the U.S.,” ABC News reports.
PokerStars’ parent company, Amaya Inc., owns online gambling brands that have over 100 million registered customers worldwide. It was approved by New Jersey gambling regulators in September to enter the state’s Internet gambling market.
“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,” said David Baazov, Amaya’s chairman and CEO. “We are honored and excited to now bring these experiences to New Jersey.”
