Pokerstars and Wynn partnership

News of the partnership announced last night is a turning point in the evolution of the regulation of the poker industry in the United States. PokerStars and Wynn have signed "a strategic alliance" with several objectives, including to work together to ensure the adoption of legislation which would help to define a legal framework for playing online casino legally while providing the means to the authorities to fight illegal gambling.

The partnership between the two groups will give birth to a game site, PokerStarsWynn.com, which will be jointly operated in the US by both companies as soon as a change in the law permits licenses to be granted.

Opposition to the online poker Bill

Historically opposed to the regulation of the online poker industry the land-based casino owners seem to now be changing their opinion. The President of the South Point Group which operates a casino to the south of the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas has also declared to be favorable to the Bill. However the two Las Vegas giants Caesars Entertainment and MGM have confirmed that they are still opposed to the Bill.

The Wynn group

The Wynn group owns several high-end casino complexes in Las Vegas and Macau. Wynn Las Vegas and its recent expansion Encore, offers a total of close to 5,000 hotel rooms, two casinos occupying 17 000 square metres, 30 restaurants and a golf course.
