Earlier this year, in January, there have been talks that the industry is not growing as fast as it was planned after the one-year online gaming report for remote gambling activities in New Jersey was released.
In the meantime, as US online casinos are reaching new heights, online poker players are impatiently waiting for the NJDGE to issue the long awaited approval for Amaya Gaming’s popular brand PokerStars which is expected to boost the falling online poker industry.
