Wynn Interactive has written to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) to say that “at this time, Wynn does not wish to proceed with its application” for an online gaming license.

At the beginning of September, Wynn also withdrew its application for a Casino Service Industry Enterprise license. No explanation was given by Wynn, but the implication is that the company does not see entering the regulated New Jersey market as a viable business.

Wynn announced a partnership with 888’s All America Poker Network (AAPN) in September 2013. The agreement intended to provide for Wynn to offer online poker in Nevada and online poker and casino games in New Jersey.

A week later, Bloomberg reported that Wynn had established an agreement with Caesars to work through its land based casino in New Jersey.
