ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - The owner of Atlantic City’s Resorts Casino Hotel expects that a decision on whether the world’s largest Internet poker web site will become licensed in New Jersey will come “in weeks, not months.”

Morris Bailey says New Jersey Gaming Enforcement Division has indicated the much-delayed review of PokerStars has entered its final phases.

He says a decision should be rendered soon on whether its new parent company, Amaya Gaming, should become licensed to conduct Internet gambling in New Jersey.

The gaming enforcement division declined comment Wednesday.

PokerStars tried in 2013 to get licensed in New Jersey in tandem with Resorts.

But the division suspended PokerStars for up to two years, citing legal problems involving some former executives, including an unresolved indictment against its founder.
