Online poker site in Portugal of PokerStars is ready to launch off finally.


The project was in the offing for quite a while with PokerStars working with the licensing and regulatory authorities in the country to get their regional website in this country operational.

From having established its presence in countries like France, UK, Bulgaria and others, the latest news is that casino license as well as licenses for online poker in Portugal has been won by PokerStars recently.

The gaming overseers in this country were looking into the different aspects of the casino and online poker site before they could provide their formal approval for the same. After all the aspects of the website and its intended operations were approved, the company can now officially launch the website for the country, Pokerstars.pt. Indeed, country wise operations are necessary as the regulations in every country are different when it comes to cash games and online gaming and gambling opportunities.

There are certain worldwide forums and events of PokerStars, where people from all over can participate, but in certain cases, regional sites are the only way to go for people of a country make legitimate earnings at such sites.

The authority that has approved operations in Portugal is SRIJ License 005. The license that has been issued allows PokerStars to offer Omaha cash games, French roulette, blackjack, tournament poker and Hold’em games on the Portugal site. The website will allow the players of the country to take part in the games and events legally. The company had its presence in the country before, but the new regulations that came into force the country to close its operations for a while.
