Reported on onlinepokerreport.com, Amaya’s CEO David Baazov has reassured that PokerStars will receive approval to enter the New Jersey market sometime in the third quarter of 2015. Hopefully the presence of the online poker giant can add some life to the struggling poker market here in the New Jersey struggling poker market.
New Jersey’s DGE report for April’s recent revenue has showed, online poker’s year-over-year numbers declined from $2.59 million to $1.98 million.
With PokerStars launching in the third quarter it can mean many different things. Does this indicate that online poker in New Jersey has seen it’s best days? Will PokerStars come along and demonstrate how an online poker product should be marketed? Will they offer a more superior schedule and value for their MTTs? Will other operators be forced to step up their game? Time will tell.
