It seems that Ultimate Poker, the first regulated real money online poker site in the United States, isn’t going to let anything stand in their way. Just weeks after getting up and running for real money play in Nevada, Ultimate Poker has their sites set on New Jersey. In a deal announced Monday morning Ultimate Poker has partnered with the Trump Taj Mahal to begin offering real money play in the Garden State.
“Today we are excited to be entering into an agreement with Trump Taj Mahal Associates to bring online gaming to New Jersey,” said Tom Breitling, Chairman of Ultimate Gaming. “This represents a huge step forward in our desire to offer Americans across the nation the opportunity to enjoy safe and regulated online games.”
The deal sees Ultimate Gaming provide the Trump brand with more than just online poker. According to the company’s press release Ultimate Gaming will provide Trump with “a wide range of real money online casino games and poker, using its proprietary technology platform and the Ultimate Brands.”
Under a recently signed law, any game spread on a casino floor in that state can now be offered online in New Jersey. Like Nevada, action is restricted to people within the borders of New Jersey. Players should expect to see real money play as early as November 2013.
No timeline has been given for Ultimate Poker to be live in New Jersey.
“Ultimate Gaming is a pioneer in the online gaming space and can provide a turnkey solution for our online gaming needs in New Jersey,” said Trump Entertainment Resorts CEO Robert F. Griffin. “We are delighted to be working with a trusted partner that has a proven track record.”
Ultimate Poker, owned by Station Casinos, the same group responsible for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, launched real money play in April 2013 and quickly signed Antonio Esfandiari as their brand’s ambassador. During the 2013 WSOP the site added Jason Somerville, Dan O’Brien, Lauren Kling and Jonathan Little to their roster of representatives.
