They might not have made too much noise about it but PokerStars' live card room inside Madrid’s Gran Casino has finally opened its doors.
After months of renovation work the 200-seater venue hosted its inaugural tournament earlier this month and welcomed both amateurs and Spanish celebrities alike.Thanks to PokerFuse a selection of pictures has surfaced and by the looks of things PokerStars has made it their job to offer the best quality playing area possible. Indeed, with projects in London and New Jersey also on the horizon it looks as though PokerStars LIVE will not only carry the site’s branding but their overall feel of quality. Back in December, 2012, the Gran Casino Madrid’s Deputy General Manager, Paula Arriaga, said that their aim was to take “poker to a new level” by “adapting the lighting, the seats and the audiovisual support to the needs of the poker player.”From the recent pictures it certainly looks as though they’ve achieved that.The PokerStars Room at London's Hippodrome Casino is set to open next month.New players can qualify for events at PokerStars live venues online with a 100% first deposit bonus of up to $500.
