Following a soft-launch period that took place from March 16-20, PokerStars officially launched in New Jersey on Monday, March 21. During the soft-launch phase, play on the site was restricted to a cap of 500 players. That cap was removed Monday, and without it numbers swelled to some of the best we’ve seen in the Garden State.
“We could not be more proud to bring PokerStars to New Jersey,” said David Baazov, Chairman and CEO of Amaya, in a press release issued on the morning of the launch. “Working with our partner, Resorts Casino Hotel, we look forward to providing the most exciting, innovative, and secure gaming experience to New Jersey.” Full @pokernews.com
