PokerStars Puts in Bid to Buy Brick & Mortar Casino

Published on:

The parent company of online poker site PokerStars has put in a bid to buy the brick & mortar based The Atlantic Club Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. This appears to be the first time an online-only gambling site operator has attempted to buy a land-based operation. It remains to be seen whether the bid will be accepted, as it is already being challenged by the American Gaming Association (which represents land-based casinos). http://news.yahoo.com/pokerstars-ac-bid-sparks-battle-153442498.html
