Fertitta Interactive Partners with Full Tilt Online Poker

Las Vegas, Monte Carlo or Atlantic City are destinations that gamblers dream of visiting just to see the fantastic array of games available. Entertainment is the name of the game in Vegas and the offerings are many. Online casinos are a lot easier to access and a lot less expensive than a hotel room and a plane ticket, leaving the punter fewer extra dollars to wager with. Vegas and Atlantic City have been suffering from a less affluent consumer making fewer trips and spending much less money.

The online casino is an alternative to traveling and some of the big Las Vegas casino operators see the future by partnering with online operators and getting on with the show.
888 Holdings and Caesars Entertainment have come together recently to compete in the internet betting market. Another big name in gambling, Wynn Resorts has formed a strategic partnership with online poker room PokerStars.com eventually to capture a portion of the huge poker market.

Fertitta Interactive was formed last year by the Fertitta brothers who own Station Casinos among other brands with partners Tom Breitling and Tim Poster, two Las Vegas casino executives and the founders of Travelscape announced recently they will form a strategic partnership with online poker firm Full Tilt Poker to come into effect once the Federal government lifts the prohibition on internet wagering.  Mr. Breitling said the interactive company had no relationship with Station Casino and the Las Vegas chain wouldn't be involved in the Full Tilt partnership.  The Wall Street Journal reported recently that the firm Fertitta Interactive will support efforts for the legalization of online poker at a federal level in the USA.
Fertitta Interactive, a new entity within the Station Casinos umbrella is backing Federal legalization and not intrastate online poker because they believe that Internet gambling federally would benefit Nevada especially. The statement from the firm emphasised that jobs would come to Nevada and taxes would generate millions for the coffers of the government.
