Winamax to share cross-border online poker liquidity

Business News

Winamax has become the second online poker operator to be given the necessary authorization to join the shared liquidity project.

ARJEL, the French online gambling regulator, confirmed that it issued a license to Winamax, thus giving it the green light to share liquidity in the countries that participate in the scheme.

The French poker operator is currently licensed only in its home country. However, it has previously revealed plans to expand its footprint across other regulated jurisdictions, and particularly in Spain, Italy, and Portugal, which are France’s partners in the shared liquidity scheme.

Last month, PokerStars kicked off the project officially by launching Franco-Spanish tables. PokerStars Europe quickly became the world’s third biggest poker network, trailing only behind PokerStars’ global website and IDNpoker.

According to PokerScout data, there are 20,121 players online on PokerStars’ European network, with 1,560 of these playing cash games.
