partypoker launch Spain-France shared liquidity platform

By Harrison Sayers

A new shared liquidity poker market has been established between players in France and Spain by partypoker.

GVC Holdings’ owned online poker operator, partypoker has achieved the shared liquidity pool between the two countries through the establishment of its new partypoker.eu website.

The new website allows for the countries poker players to compete against one another across a range of pre-scheduled tournaments.

Reports of a new potential platform to pool together players from both France and Spain was first announced by ARJEL, the French gaming Commission, back in June 2017.

The original agreement surrounding shared liquidity also included Portugal and Italy and was signed on 6 July 2017. However, those nations have prevented any advancement on the issue through the failure to appoint the necessary operator licenses amongst other things.

Commenting on the new development partypoker ambassador and representative in the eu market, ElkY, commented: “I am extremely enthusiastic about joining partypoker to actively support their efforts to bring back the ‘Poker First’ mentality, live and online. Our goal is to provide players and fans with an experience they deserve worldwide. partypoker will be aiming to bring their ambition, expertise and successful model to the .eu market with some big announcements coming soon.”

Echoing the sentiments of ElkY, partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters, added: “Today’s partypoker.eu launch represents a milestone for both French and Spanish players, who can now enjoy greater variety, reduced rake and bigger and better games on the new .eu platform. We look forward to bringing our Spanish and French players together for the first time on our new and improved site.”
