American Casino and Entertainment Properties, the owner of the Stratosphere and Arizona Charlie’s casinos in Las Vegas, have officially launched their own free-to-play online poker site, acePLAYpoker.com. This move is a common one performed by gaming companies in anticipation of legislation that will eventually allow real-money poker playing online.
Once players register at the new online poker room, they can immediately start playing for real prizes. Players could win tickets to the thrill rides at the Stratosphere, show tickets, free hotel stays at Arizona Charlie’s, Stratophere Hotel, and the Aquarius Casino and Resort in Laughlin.
Approved this last September by the Nevada Gaming Commission, American Casino and Entertainment Properties is a licensed interactive gaming operator in the state of Nevada.
“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 in a Las Vegas Sun article. “We are also positioning ACEP and acePLAYpoker.com for the potential approval of legalized online gaming.”
