Stratosphere Casino Goes Online
The American Casino & Entertainment Properties (ACEP) Stratosphere casino and its sister properties have moved into free play poker while it waits for the legalisation of online real money poker.
The director of gaming development ACEP, Alec Driscoll, said “We’re one of the few actively pursuing a free online site. It’s a great way of doing fun things in the casino and being on the cutting edge for online poker.”
The free to play poker website was launched by ACEP on February 12th.
According to Driscoll they have a number of promotional tournaments going on all day, he says that they are “really making a big push for NASCAR weekend (March 8-10) with plans for a nice Stratosphere vacation package.”
The website gives players free to play poker around the clock as well as exclusive promotions and show tickets.
Driscoll said that the internet poker “is the future of the industry and this is our way of being in on it right from the beginning … It attracts the younger demographic who can play with friends and family all over the globe.”
