New Free Online Poker Site in Vegas
Stratosphere Casino in Las Vegas, owned by American Casino & Entertainment Properties (ACEP), announced the launch of their free to play online poker website.
The platform, acePLAYpoker.com, is available from Stratosphere Casino itself, as well as from some of the group’s other properties such as the Arizona Charlie’s Decatur or the Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin.
The casino’s online offering comes in anticipation of new laws allowing for limited online gaming in the state of Nevada among others. ACEP’s director of gaming development, Alec Driscoll underlined the importance of “positioning ACEP and acePLAYpoker.com for the potential approval of legalized online gaming”.
Although, due to current federal laws, customers at acePLAYpoker.com are not allowed to play for cash prizes, they will never the less be able to walk away with tickets to shows and rides, win free hotel stays at the Stratosphere and other ACEP casinos as well as obtain passes for events at ACEP’s casino resorts.
ACEP has recently obtained a licence for a real money online poker site so local residents will soon be able to play with real money on acePLAYpoker.com.
