In an interview with eGaming Review Magazine Wednesday, Co-CEO of Bwin.PartyGaming, Jim Ryan, said in regard to his company’s desire to enter the lucrative US market: “We have made the decision to target strategic partners. At federal level, we are finalising agreements with a couple of parties positioned nicely to operate in that market. In California, we are well advanced with a particular party. The same in New Jersey, consistent with where we are at a federal level.”

California’s legislator announced it will not be pursuing the issue until the start of next year, quite possibly after federal legislation is enacted.

New Jersey State Senator Raymond Lesniak introduced new draft legislation this month.  His previous proposal made it all the way to Governor Chris Christie’s desk before Christie announced he would not be signing off in the final minutes of a deadline.  The Governor cited specifics in the bill that Lesniak believes the latest incarnation addresses. 

Ryan also confirmed his firm was not among those looking to purchase the assets of defunct Full Tilt Poker.
