Fertitta Interactive hopes to capture a share of a multibillion dollar market. According to H2 Gaming, a London-based research firm, the U.S. online poker market will exceed $4.3 billion, assuming federal legislation is passed and every relevant state opts in.

"We would prefer an online poker-only bill, which would make all other games illegal," Breitling said. "We think that's the right way for this to play out. But it's moving very quickly on a state-by-state approach."

Before April 15, 2011 - also known as Black Friday when the U.S. Department of Justice unsealed an indictment against PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker - the online poker market in the U.S was more than $3.5 billion, claiming more than 6 million individual accounts.
Another massive legalization battle for the Fertitta brothers to fight.
