Pokerstars and buying the Atlantic Club

Spoke with some people and they think if Pokerstars buys Atlantic Club it will transform AC casinos. One knowledgable commenter suggested it would out do Borgata. Some observations were based on Pokerstars existing operations. I don't know enough about them at this point to have an opinion. Anyone have any knowledge on this company and/or their current operations?

BobR- please invite the " knowledgable commenter " to join us here and give a more detailed analysis......

IMO Atlantic Club/Rational Group will not have the potential to "out do Borgata".

Who cares who my "knowledgable commentors" are, that's not the point. Pokerstars will invest 100's of millions in renovations, the prints are already printed.

The point is -Pokerstars are a major player who have the ability and resources to make a difference, of course this is according to my knowledgable commentors on the situation..

Does anyone have any info. on their other operations and where they are located?

They may cannibalized some of the other casinos but doubt they will out perform the Borgata. People said (and some still say) that Revel would outperform the Borgata and Revel invested billions.

Perhaps what is meant By "out perform" is total online gaming revenue plus the Atlantic Club.

They have a good track record (supposedly) Revel doesn't. History is a good indicator of the future.

Can't be very Knowledgable if your so called Knowledgable commentors think the A/C Club will EVER outdo the Borgata.

What would happen to the current approach? Will they still keep the locals brand, free parking, low bet tables, etc?
