It's already opened a brick and mortar room in Madrid and is about to do so in London and now PokerStars has unveiled plans to launch another live venue in one of the capital's of high stakes action, Macau.

The new PokerStars branded live poker room will launch at the City of Dreams resort offering cash games and daily tournaments at 13 permanent tables. The venue will also play host to many of Asia's most successful poker tournaments, including the Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP), Macau Poker Cup series, Macau Millions and the Asia-Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Macau poker festival.

"The PokerStars online brand drives more traffic to live poker events than any other," said Danny McDonagh, PokerStars Director of Live Operations for Asia-Pacific. "Players know that PokerStars is synonymous with integrity and high quality. That makes this collaboration a natural fit because City of Dreams has been at the forefront in providing the most innovative and premium gaming experience that is second to none in Macau.”

No opening date has yet been confirmed but full details of the grand opening are expected soon.

Closer to home, the new PokerStars Live room at the London's Hippodrome Casino will officially open on 4th March. The new West End venue will host round the clock cash games as well as tournaments, including a new low buy-in tournament series presented by the UK & Ireland Poker Tour, with the first £250 + £25 event running from 12-14 April. Qualify now with a 100% first deposit bonus of up to $500 at PokerStars.
