“We’re excited to join in this new venture and bring even more gaming options to guests of the property,” Alexandra Epstein, executive vice president of the El Cortez Hotel & Casino, said.
“By combining the online accessibility of Ultimate Poker with the classic Vegas feel of the El Cortez we’re giving new and existing players a different way to experience the game of poker,” she added.
Ultimate Poker recently launched a similar agreement with Peppermill Resort Spa Casino and its four additional Nevada properties.
These partnerships now give players the opportunity to deposit and cash out at over 20 convenient locations around the state, including El Cortez, Station Casinos and Peppermill Resorts.
Ultimate Poker also announced it is bringing players in Nevada and New Jersey an exciting new promotion for online play in both states – The Big Ten and Triple Play.
