2UP Gaming looking to buy Atlantic City casino

Jul 29, 2013 7:05 PM

Although the U.K. online poker company PokerStars failed in its attempt to acquire an Atlantic City casino, that hasn’t deterred 2UP Gaming from making a similar effort.

Vincent Crandon, managing partner for MidOil USA, the Australian company that owns 2Up Gaming, said he has been in talks with casino operators about the possibility of acquiring the property. He would not identify the properties, however.

He said he hoped to buy a casino before September so it would be among those casinos offering Internet gambling on Nov. 23, the date set by the state to begin offering online gaming.

Crandon added that if his company fails to buy a casino it would be prepared to build a property.
