    POKERSTARS TO GET NEW JERSEY LICENSE BY MARCH

    PokerStars should receive its New Jersey online gambling go-ahead by March, according to state Senator Ray Lesniak (pictured). The senator, who has been a fierce champion of the gaming industry in New Jersey, made the prediction in response to queries via Twitter. When asked why Stars’ application has continued to languish, Lesniak suggested it was down to “more due diligence window dressing” on the part of the state Division of Gaming Enforcement.


    For the record, this isn’t the first time Lesniak has made such a prediction. In September, Lesniak suggested Stars would be popping a US-made bottle of champagne within “weeks, not months.” On Friday, Lesniak offered his apologies, saying he “didn’t factor in [Las Vegas Sands chairman Sheldon] Adelson’s influence.”


    Adelson is vehemently against the spread of online gambling in the US via his Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling (CSIG) and his support for the Restore America’s Wire Act (RAWA). In October, Adelson told attendees at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas that Amaya Gaming’s acquisition of Stars had done nothing to expunge the illegality that resulted in the Black Friday criminal charges against Stars and thus Stars had no business doing business on US shores.

    Why exactly is a filthy rich Gambling promoter and tycoon like sheldon adelson so "vehemently" opposed to internet gambling in the USA? is he THAT afraid it will actually sink his Vegas Behemoth Casinos like Venetian??? What a hypocrite....I cannot stand the guy's politics either.
