PokerStars Puts in Bid to Buy Brick & Mortar Casino

The parent company of online poker site PokerStars has put in a bid to buy the brick & mortar based The Atlantic Club Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. This appears to be the first time an online-only gambling site operator has attempted to buy a land-based operation. It remains to be seen whether the bid will be accepted, as it is already being challenged by the American Gaming Association (which represents land-based casinos).
