Amaya CEO Reiterates that PokerStars to Enter NJ in Third Quarter

david_baazov_As reported on onlinepokerreport.com, Amaya’s CEO David Baazov is still confident that PokerStars will receive approval to enter the New Jersey market sometime in the third quarter of 2015. The presence of the online poker giant may inject some life into the struggling poker market here in the garden state.

In the recent April revenue report for New Jersey DGE, online poker’s year-over-year numbers have declined from $2.59 million to $1.98 million.

Does this indicate that online poker in New Jersey has seen it’s best days? Will PokerStars come along and demonstrate how an online poker product should be marketed? Will they offer a more superior schedule and value for their MTTs? Will other operators be forced to step up their game? Time will tell.

Below is the link to the NJ DGE website where you can see the complete revenue report for April 2015.
