Trump is the latest in a line of US-based firms looking for potential partnerships in the States as the industry prepares to open up. 

The Donald first indicated he would like to tap into the market late last year.  Those close to Trump noted they were seeking out potential partners. 

888 Holdings, which is already the largest online gambling site targeting Canadians, operates the 4th biggest online poker network in the world.
