Former Amaya Gaming CEO David Baazov Trial Date Set

In a case that is now dragging on into its second year regarding a transaction from 2014, former Amaya Gaming Chief Executive Officer David Baazov now has a date set for his trial on insider trading charges.

The two amendments, A7622 and A7619, are quite similar, save for one major difference. A7622 includes language – in addition to online gaming – that would permit non-casinos to have video gaming terminals (VGT’s) on their premises. VGT’s are video slot,

S. shores, albeit only in the state of New Jersey at this time. Amaya Gaming chairman David Baazov made the announcement that many in the online poker community in the United States had been waiting for – that PokerStars would go “live” for New Jersey residents on March 21. “PokerStars is the global leader in online poker and trusted by its customers for its robust and innovative technology, world-class security and game integrity,” he stated during the announcement of PokerStars’ return. “We are honored and excited to now bring these experiences to New Jersey.” The full-online gaming market of New Jersey has been awaiting the addition of the
