PokerStars earns Malta License
PokerStars is one of the top online poker rooms in the online poker industry if not The Best. The online poker room makes itself available to millions of people all over the world and now officials at PokerStars have stated the site is open to even more players!

PokerStars has officially earned a license by the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Commission so now players in both Finland and Sweden will be able to enjoy the online poker games that PokerStars has to offer. PokerStars had just recently opened up a site in Belgium and they are also looking to offer up sites of their brand to other markets in Europe as well.

PokerStars released a statement on the subject which stated that the new PokerStars site will have an EU address and players will be able to continue playing at the PokerStars home site or they can use the EU site.

Players who are based in Sweden and Finland can update their software and re-register so they can use the EU site if they so choose. Any balance of any account will be moved over and be available instantly as soon as the move is completed.

Guy Templer the Head of Business Development at PokerStars commented on the news by stating: “Some markets treat the European Union-licensed operators differently than other license holders.
Offering our online poker on PokerStars (EU) with a Malta license provides benefits to players in Sweden and Finland in particular and we are always striving to offer the best products possible to our players wherever they are located.”
