PokerStars is looking to expand its empire with another investment in bricks and mortar.
Having already purchased shares in the recently constructed Hippodrome Casino in London, the online site is now planning to take control of the Atlantic Club Casino, Atlantic City, should their application for a license be granted.
PokerStars has already agreed terms to take control of the live venue and once a casino license of granted it should give them a foothold in the US market; just in time for any legislation regarding intra-state online poker.
The move has been welcomed by Atlantic City's senator, Raymond Lesniak, who believes that online gaming will provide a "big boost" for the city's flagging casino economy.

Great opportunity for them. They have a database that could give them the number of regular poker players per capita for any given city. Perfect for knowing just the right place open a casino.

i think it's a very logical step that pokerstars are taking. they pretty much expanded to the limit online, there's not a lot of room for growth- and considering their business is profitable, this puts them in a situation where they have lots of free money in their accounts- they can pay dividends or invest them in further growth- this time brick & mortar casinos. they have very strong brand, great management- i'm pretty sure this investment will be a success

online game stars,especially on micro,is a waste of time,what is playing there is not poker is just lotto...and the same thing is for sattelites for live tournaments...

With so much income they are making online, why not expanding as much as they can,
in land based casinos.
They have the money and sure are experienced enough on how to run a casino.
They are going to hit the US market either it is online or not, from what it seems.

I hope their dealers in the live games are better than the dealers in the online games. I've never witnessed so mamy 2 and 3 outer suckouts on the river as i've witnessed lately on PS.

People wonder why there are so many accusations of poker being rigged. If you watch pokerstars on a regular basis you will see why. Its absolutely shocking what goes on.
