Breaking News: Ultimate Gaming Exits NJ Market in Wake of Taj Mahal Bankruptcy

LAS VEGAS - Ultimate Gaming announced today that it has terminated its online gaming agreement with Trump Taj Mahal Associates LLC, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.  The agreement was terminated due to multiple breaches by Trump Taj Mahal Associates.  As a result of the termination, Ultimate Gaming will be withdrawing from the New Jersey online gaming market.  Ultimate Gaming will continue to maintain its existing online poker operations in Nevada through UltimatePoker.com.

“We are grateful to the State of New Jersey and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement for allowing us to be one of the first companies to bring online gaming to the citizens of New Jersey and appreciate their leadership as one of the first states to allow online gaming," said Tom Breitling, Chairman of Ultimate Gaming.  “We are working closely with the Division of Gaming Enforcement to ensure a smooth transition for our online gaming customers as we wind down our New Jersey operations,” continued Breitling.  “We also look forward to enhancing our customer experience in Nevada by adding Mac and mobile offerings by the end of the year,” said Breitling.
