It seems as though PokerStars hasn't given up on its mission to re-enter the US market after rumours have surfaced that they are currently lobbying government officials in New York State.
Having been recently knocked back by Nevada and New Jersey (a temporary two-year block), PokerStars is now looking towards the Empire State as a way into the US online market. The world's biggest poker site has reportedly hired a group of lobbyists to connect with local officials and enhance the company's profile in the state. Although PokerStars is currently remaining tight-lipped about the subject, a number of sources in New York have suggested that representatives for the Rational Group (PokerStars' parent company) are in the process of talking to Governor Andrew Cuomo. In the past Cuomo has been one of the most active advocates of land-based casinos in New York and campaigned for more than four years to get it legalised. Moreover, his legal team, Cozen O'Connor, appear positive when it comes to online poker after telling CapitalNewYork.com that now is "a good time for an open architecture".Although Cuomo is yet to make an official statement on his views towards online gaming, it seems that he could become a powerful ally for PokerStars once the discussion on online poker in the state matures.
