ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey casino regulators have begun their investigation into a Canadian company that's buying the PokerStars online gambling web site and hopes to get it licensed here by fall.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement says Amaya Gaming Group has begun submitting documents required for a determination on whether PokerStars can be licensed in New Jersey.

The company met last week with division officials, who voiced optimism that Amaya could get approval for PokerStars to join New Jersey's Internet gambling market by this fall.

PokerStars, the world's largest online poker site, had tried twice to get licensed in New Jersey last year, but the division suspended it for up to two years, citing an unresolved indictment against a company executive, who will step down as part of the deal.
