Bloomberg News reports Amaya Gaming has reached a deal to acquire the Rational Group, the Isle of Man-based parent company of PokerStars. The move opens the door for PokerStars to potentially enter the U.S., initially in New Jersey, where Amaya is already licensed.
The deal, which will be announced Friday, creates the world's largest publicly traded online gaming company. Current Rational Group CEO Mark Scheinberg will resign his position and no longer be affiliated with PokerStars.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has warned six online poker affiliate websites to cease and desist from promoting online gaming sites that are not licensed and regulated by the state of New Jersey.
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling that determined poker is a skill game. The appeals court decided that whether or not poker is a game of skill is irrelevant. It clearly violates New York state law, and therefore, the Illegal Gambling Business Act applies.
