PokerStars has opened its second office in Quay West, Douglas on the Isle of Man which will accommodate up to 41 members of staff to support its continued expansion in online casino and sports betting.
The new office, which already houses twenty employees, was opened by the Isle of Man’s Chief Minister Howard Quayle MHK, who said:
“It is always a pleasure to celebrate success and the opening of these offices marks a double success.” “First and foremost it is a reflection of the continuing global success of PokerStars. The second success is that of the Isle of Man itself, in providing a great base for global leaders like PokerStars.”
“PokerStars is constantly expanding to meet the demand of our growing player base around the world, particularly in our newer online casino and online sports betting businesses,” Eric Hollreiser, president of corporate communications for Amaya, added.
“We are very happy to be on the Isle of Man and happy to continue to invest in the island. We look forward to welcoming new employees in the future and continuing to support the island’s e-gaming sector and Manx economy.”
The company will look to employee a significant number of new staff on the Isle of Man, revealing an open headcount for a further 112 employees exists.
PokerStars’ office on the Isle of Man has grown from five to 395 employees since it was established in 2005.
