Back at the start of December news began to surface that PokerStars was in the middle of talks to purchase a brick and mortar casino in Atlantic City: The Atlantic Club.
That negotiation period has now come to a close and, according to a statement given to PokerFuse, the acquisition is complete.Although there are some final legal requirements to be fulfilled before PokerStars officially takes over the property – namely the grant of an Interim Casino Authorization by the state of New Jersey – it’s virtually a done deal.The takeover by PokerStars is not only unprecedented in the online poker industry, but one that will secure around 2,000 jobs and help boost the local economy.Such a positive move can’t help but be looked upon favourably by both residents and government officials in the area. Indeed, with the online poker industry still looking for a way to re-establish itself in the US, this type of move could prove highly beneficial. PokerStars now owns a stake in two live venues: London’s Hippodrome Casino and The Atlantic Club Casino. Such an estate now makes them major players in both the poker and casino industry.
