PokerStars Invest in Spanish Casino

Monday, 17 December 2012

PokerStars bid to become the world’s leading online and offline poker providers took another step towards becoming reality over the weekend with the announcement of another major partnership.

Having already invested in London’s Hippodrome Casino, the online site has also moved to purchase the Atlantic Club Casino ahead of any US online poker regulation.

On top of these strategic moves, PokerStars has recently partnered with Spain’s Gran Madrid Casino. The union will see PokerStars take charge of the casino’s poker room and lend their brand name to the establishment.
PokerStars currently enjoys a 70% share of the online poker market in Spain, which means the move will likely be a popular one with many local and national players.

Work on revamping the poker room is expected to start immediately, with the doors being reopened for a host of PokerStars tournaments in the New Year.
