Poker Players in Portugal are now able to play against French and Spanish players following Portuguese authorities green lighting the country’s participation and PokerStars is first off the mark, offering a shared poker pool between the three countries.

“We have worked hard to become the first operator to bring the benefits of shared liquidity to Portugal,” Guy Templer, COO of The Stars Group, said. “Our players will see a huge increase in the variety and scale of our tournaments and promotions and will enjoy more excitement, more competition and more fun!”

“This dramatically strengthens our offering and demonstrates our commitment to the Portuguese market. We look forward to working with the Portuguese regulator to further improve the poker product offering for Portuguese players, and additionally hope that Italy will soon progress so that their players can also enjoy the significantly better experience that shared liquidity brings.”
