Pokerstars Obtains Online Gaming License for Bulgarian Market

Pokerstars have just obtained a online gaming license for the Bulgarian market, approved by the Bulgarian State Gambling Commission. Pokerstars will finalize all details with the Bulgarian Online Gambling Commission over the next couple, including all the technical requirements to be able to operate under the license provided by the Bulgarian State Gambling Commission.

Obtaining the license for the Bulgarian market is very important for Pokerstars, as they are committed to be among the first poker companies to enter in new regulated markets and work hard on obtaining licenses as well as following the rules and protocols of each regulated market.

Pokerstars is currently the only licensed poker operator to obtain a license in Bulgaria, allowing Bulgarians to play on their site. It is not legal for Bulgarians to play on sites without a license from the Bulgarian State Gambling Commission, providing a big edge for the world’s biggest poker site.

“Bulgaria is full of promise,” Eric Hollreiser, Head of Corporate Communications for Pokerstars said.

“Poker is extremely popular in the country and recently we have seen some notable results from Bulgarian players including Dimitar Danchev, who won the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event for $1,859,000. We are delighted with today’s news and we are looking forward to work with the Gambling Commission so that we can launch as soon as possible.”

Pokerstars already obtained licenses in many other regulated markets besides Bulgaria, including Italy, Belgium, Denmark, France, Spain, Estonia, Germany, Malta and Isle of Man. Pokerstars is the world’s biggest poker site and it shows in them providing a safe and fun poker environment that players can enjoy and compete against each other in many different poker variants.
