Hit and Run: Draft Me GPL Video; Breaking Down New Cali iPoker Bill; Shakeup in New Jersey

Steve Ruddock : February 22nd, 2016


Borgata could be switching online casino and online poker providers. Draft Justin Oliver for the GPL campaign. Martin Jacobson among weekend’s big online winners. And more.

Shakeup in New Jersey

the big news of the morning can’t be found in the typical poker outlets, as most of the stories are stuffed behind the paywalls of the gaming industries trade publications. But it appears Borgata may be getting ready to cut ties with partypoker in New Jersey, as according to eGR Magazine, Borgata and GAN have entered into an agreement that will see GAN provide social and real money games for Borgata.

According to multiple sources, GAN will take over the Borgata’s online casino and Pala will take over their online poker site – Pala already operates as an online casino skin of Borgata. Pala’s involvement has led to a bit of an uproar on the forums.

The severing of Borgata and bwin.party’s relationship is still all speculation at this point in time, as no official announcement has been made, but there is certainly a lot of smoke around this story. We’ll try to keep you posted as more details emerge.
