PokerStars Launches Spanish Online Poker Site Today
PokerStars To Serve Spanish Online Players From Today
PokerStars will begin operating in Spain today, Jun. 5, with PokerStars.es, after the company announced it had been awarded a license to serve the Spanish online poker market.
Other operators who obtained a license include bwin.party, Ladbrokes, 888 and Sportingbet.
This follows on from recent social media rumours regarding the signing of Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal, which the site’s head of corporate communications, Eric Hollreiser, declined to address.
Regulations in Spain now allow residents to play online with licensed operators and PokerStars have made sure they are among the first to get in there with www.PokerStars.es. According to a recently passed online gaming law, Spanish players can only compete against their fellow countrymen.
Spain now joins France, Denmark, Italy, Estonia, Belgium, Malta, and the Isle of Man in PokerStars’ ever-increasing list of licenses.
Gino Appiotti, President of Licensed Markets – Spain, Italy and France, for PokerStars, said, “Spain is a very important poker market and features some of the best players in the world. As the most popular online poker site in the world, we are very happy to provide the best variety of games, the safest and most secure online play and our world-class software to the market.”
