A corrupt entity for a corrupt state? Gov. Chris Christie looked at the dollar signs instead of the signs of what Pala did to their people?
A new online gambling site will open in New Jersey in the next couple of weeks, but it will not be PokerStars. On Wednesday, it was announced that Pala Interactive, LLC was issued a transactional waiver by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to operate under the license of the Borgata Casino & Spa.

The Pala Band of Mission Indians operates Pala Interactive and will become the first Indian tribe to offer iGaming services in New Jersey. The site is expected to launch within two weeks.
Continuation of 2013 Approval
Wednesday's announcement was actually a year in the making. Last year, Pala was announced as a company approved for a transactional waiver as long as they came up with a casino partner. A partner was never named and iGaming launched in late November 2013 with the Pala on the outside looking in.
Pala's site will operate under Borgata's license but will operate separately from Borgata Poker and PartyPoker NJ. This means that they will not share player pools. Based on news from 2013, we do know that CAMS, LLC will provide age and identity verification for Pala Interactive. Also, geolocation services will be provided by GeoComply USA. It is unclear at this time whether they will offer solely casino gaming or if they will offer a poker room.
