By now, you’ve probably heard the news about online poker being back in America in a big way. PokerStars officially launched in New Jersey last month, returning to the US market after a nearly 5-year absence.

At, we don’t offer online poker. While we do offer several video poker games, peer-to-peer poker isn’t our game. Instead, we choose to keep focused on offering our New Jersey online casino players the widest variety of online casino games and exclusive titles that you can’t find anywhere else. But PokerStars’ return to the USA is a big deal — for everyone.

PokerStars New Jersey is great for poker players

Up until March 2016, if you wanted to play online poker, you were limited to a handful of sites with experiences that many players described as mediocre. Recognizing that PokerStars offers a superior poker product and a stellar international reputation, we were thrilled with the idea of partnering with them to bring poker back to America.

If you visit the New Jersey PokerStars site, you’ll notice a link on the homepage that leads to an entire page dedicated to Resorts Casino Hotel. That’s because our relationship with PokerStars is an important one.
