Pending further DGE approval, a full launch is planned for 26 November 2013, when 888casino and 888poker will be open to all eligible players of age who must be located in New Jersey while playing for real money.

David Licht, Executive Chairman of AAPN, said, "Today's launch is the result of a tremendous effort from our partners at 888 and Avenue Capital. We are proud to be offering our real money gaming proposition in New Jersey, over a cutting-edge platform that gives players a regulated, safe and secure poker and casino entertainment experience."

888's CEO Brian Mattingley commented, "Following our recent successful launches in Nevada and Delaware, going live with our casino and poker products in New Jersey marks our latest milestone in our US venture. It is a remarkable achievement for 888, which further strengthens our position in the U.S. as the only gaming provider live in all three regulated states."
