Is this going to mean all online poker is now allowed in New Jersey or just Stars and FT?Surely other states will have to now allow online poker.Governments are definitely well aware how much revenue is achievable from poker now so they would be stupid not to get a share of it.

so does this mean that online poker is now legal in new jersey only or for all the americans in some way, kinda stupid if americanos from new jersey can gamble their winnings away, while the rest of cowboys are feeling the word free doesn't mean a lot more than "i love the smell of bullsh1t in the morning".

yea america is a little different then the rest of the world, if amaya wants to go into all states, they will have to get the approval from each one. so right now only people living on the jersey shore can play. It's like the death penalty, some states have and some don't. Or gun laws.In new york you get arrested for carrying a gun In texas everybody has one.it's legal.
So it will still be a long time before all americans can play online again But this is a start.
Guess what? Even this small development could not save Atlantic City no more so there's that. Econimc dowturns make more people gamble but the US's economy is in good shape right now so the traffic is declining.

These are very good news for the portuguese comunity living in this state. I believe there are many online poker fans over there, because we also receive news and comments from them around here, so, having the chance to play in the bigger rooms will certainly be a relief for some and a new competition for others! Watxh out for them, they are trained

Not so sure about that. Congress is just trying to crucify DraftKings and FanDuel on the accounts of gambling (these are two well known fantasy sport websites where you could play/win real money against each other) as of right now so I would not be so sure they are coming back soon in large numbers.
