Owner of Stratosphere launches free online poker site

The owner of the Stratosphere and Arizona Charlie’s casinos in Las Vegas have become the latest Nevada gaming company to offer free-to-play online poker.

American Casino & Entertainment Properties today launched Gaming companies have launched poker sites over the last year in anticipation of laws that would allow limited online gaming, either by federal legislation or state-by-state.

Players can win prizes including show tickets and thrill rides at the Stratosphere and free hotel stays at American Casino & Entertainment casinos. Besides its Las Vegas properties, the company operates the Aquarius casino in Laughlin.

The Nevada Gaming Commission approved American Casino & Entertainment Properties as an interactive gaming operator in September.

“With the launch of this free to play website, we can now bring the excitement of play found at our properties to anyone with Internet access, no matter their location,” said Alec Driscoll, the company’s director of gaming development.  “We are also positioning ACEP and for the potential approval of legalized online gaming.”
