A spokesperson for PokerStars said: "Our application remains under review by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and we remain committed to working with the Division to complete the review process."
But the wait is over for the rest. bwin.party received a waiver to begin transacting with Borgata, as did GameAccount (Trump Plaza); Fertitta (Trump Taj Mahal); Amaya (Caesars, Borgata, Golden Nugget and Trump Plaza); Gamesys (Tropicana); 888 (Caesars' and Bally's); and Bally Technologies (Golden Nugget).
