PokerStars Continue Global Expansion In Casino With Italy Launch
Amaya Gaming have made their intentions clear as to where they want their prize acquisition PokerStars to be in the next few years. What was once exclusively an online poker room has now been expanded into an online casino and in the near future sports betting portal.
Following Spain and the UK PokerStars have added blackjack and roulette in Italy on their PokerStars.It client. The addition of a casino tab will allow Italians to dabble in traditional casino games. Various versions of blackjack will be on offer includes Atlantic City Blackjack, Double Deck Blackjack, Classic Blackjack and European Blackjack.
Director of Casino for PoekrStars and Full Tilt, Sam Hobcraft commented on the launch,” The launch of casino games on PokerStars allows players to enjoy the convenience of playing poker and casino in one place, Our games are fun, safe and we are using our global experience to offer fun games for Italian players.”
PokerStars are looking to rebrand themselves as a portal for online recreational players and not only hardcore poker fans. The rumors of them looking into the acquisition of DraftDay in the much talked about Daily Fantasy Sports market is another indicator of their long term expansion plans.
