Spain Looks For Poker Liquidity Co-Operation

Spanish Regulator To Explore Strategy Of International Liquidity


As evidence mounts that ring-fencing poker liquidity on a country-by-country basis in Europe has been detrimental to the growth of the game, Spain has said it would actively seek co-operation with France, Germany, Italy and Portugal to explore international liquidity pools.

The Spanish regulator, Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego, said in its 2013 strategy report entitled The Regulation of Online Gaming in Spain, that it would see co-ordination with the European Commission and other European Regultors.

Specifically, [translated], “Coordination of the biannual meetings with regulators from France, Italy, Portugal and Germany to bring positions and formulas to analyze international liquidity.”

France has already signaled its willingness to explore the possibility of merging player pools while the Italian online poker market continues to decline at a rapid rate.
