Hit and Run: Wynn Interactive Washes Hands of NJ iGaming; Harry Reid on DFS;Pokerfest Starts Sunday

Staff : September 23rd, 2015


Put me in charge of PokerStars in New Jersey and I would… Wynn Interactive done with online gambling in the U.S. for the time being. Pokerfest kicks off this weekend at partypoker.

How would you run PokerStars in NJ?

How would you steer the PokerStars ship in New Jersey if they elevated you to the role of captain? Online Poker Report’s Robert DellaFave did just thought, putting together a detailed plan of what he would do if he were put in charge of PokerStars in the Garden State.

DellaFave’s plan would be:

  • Steer clear of desperate promotions.
  • Launch an all-in-one client with poker, DFS, and Casino
  • Host live poker tournaments at Resorts
  • Don’t transfer higher costs of doing business on the players
  • Revamp the VIP program to fit the small market

Quick Hitters

- -Wynn Interactive has decided to withdraw its license application in New Jersey. The company was approved way back in 2013, but decided to hold off on online gambling at the time. With revenue on the underwhelming side, it’s not a big surprise Wynn has decided to go this route.

- The issue of DFS and gambling continues to be a front burner issue, and considering that the issue is being discussed by legal minds, politicians, lobbyists, and industry types, it’s starting to look like this issue is coming to a boil.

- Matt Savage is the latest 2015 Poker Hall of Fame finalist PTP’s Alex Weldon takes a look at in his ongoing series.

- Lee Davy recently interviewed poker pro Ronnie Bardah, who was quite forthcoming with his answers on a number of topics.

- The latest installment of partypoker’s Pokerfest kicks off this weekend and this time around there is $2.5 million up for grabs.

- Harry Reid is the latest politician to weigh in on daily fantasy sports, and his comments aren’t going to go over well with DFS operators.
