Portugal joins France and Spain in PokerStars shared player pool

Business News

Poker players in Portugal can now compete against French and Spanish players at the online tables at PokerStars, the first online operator to offer a shared player pool between the three countries.

With even more players will come even bigger prizes, richer Stars Rewards, a wider selection of games and a new tournament series to celebrate the union.

“We have worked hard to become the first operator to bring the benefits of shared liquidity to Portugal. 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!” said Guy Templer, Chief Operating Officer of The Stars Group.

“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.”
