First Shared Online Poker Liquidity Agreement to be signed in June, confirms ARJEL

The first online poker agreement will be signed in June, confirmed France’s iGaming authority (ARJEL)  in its recent financial report despite no shared liquidity updates from the recent meeting between European gambling regulators in Lisbon, Portugal.

This agreement will allow France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal to create an online poker network and merge their player pools in hopes to boost the game of poker in all four countries.

This network, with France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal being the participating jurisdictions, will be launched by the end of 2017 or in the first months of 2018.

The first online poker network will be established between France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal according to ARJEL’s information on the shared liquidity topic. Another active participant in the ongoing shared liquidity negotiations is the UK. Austria and Germany too, have joined the discussion recently

The French gambling law was amended, so as to allow shared liquidity, in case there was an interest in the creation of an online poker network. ARJEL then initiated talks with its counterparts from European regulated jurisdictions and last summer actions were taken in that direction, as before that shared liquidity was just an idea that just came up many years ago.
