World’s Largest Poker Site Gets Operational License And Launches in Newly Regulated Baltic State


PokerStars has been granted an operational license in Estonia and its new site,, is now live for Estonian players.

The company, which also operates in the fully regulated and licensed EU states of France and Italy, received an activity license in the Baltic state in August this year.

PokerStars director of marketing for the region, Michael Holmberg, said, “There are thousands of good poker players in Estonia and I am very glad that the license enables them to continue competing at the largest poker site with players all over the world.”

“PokerStars has been the most popular poker room among Estonian players for several years, and with the licensing system now put in place in Estonia, I am convinced the country shows the way for many other EU nations in terms of regulation."
