Full Tilt Error In New Jersey Due To Software Bug
One of the most highly anticipated launches in the U.S. online gambling market is expected to be that of PokerStars in New Jersey. The speculation is rife as to the exact time but we reported on Senator Ray Lesniak giving March as a possible date.
The impact of PokerStars entry into the Garden State cannot be underestimated. New Jersey has had a disappointing first year in terms of gaming revenues. They fell way below the forecasted highs of $1 billion thrown out by Go. Chris Christie. While many online poker operators are feeling the pinch the pending entrance of the largest online poker brand in the world has got many feeling optimistic as to the future of the online poker market in New Jersey.
This week saw what many believed was more than just an innocent mistake. A pop-up advertising real money mobile gambling for players in New Jersey appeared when some mobile players attempted to login into Full Tilt mobile. While many online poker enthusiasts were delighted at the news, Amaya had to release a statement that the pop up was an error and that their real money poker mobile app was still waiting for approval by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Communication chief Eric Hollreiser has just shed more light as to the mysterious pop-up. He said in a statement,” Unfortunately, a bug in an update to the Full Tilt play money poker app inadvertently included a pop-up window alerting players in New Jersey that a licensed real money offering was available.”
