PokerStars launches first regulated online poker room in Bulgaria

Online poker giant PokerStars launched their website in Bulgaria thereby becoming the first operator to kick-start regulated online poker operations in the country.
It took 8 months for the authorities to approve the application and grant the license to PokerStars.
Head of Corporate Communications for the Rational Group, Eric Hollreiser
“PokerStars strives to be first-in-market when online poker licenses are made available and we’re proud to be the first locally licensed poker site in Bulgaria. We believe in the potential of the Bulgarian market and that is why our company has invested in the local license”.
As per the Bulgarian law players from all over the world can play and not just the players within Bulgaria.
Hence, PokerStars.bg can now join PokerStars’ regional online poker rooms in countries such as Denmark, Estonia and Belgium. They can use these countries to contribute additional player liquidity to their dot-com and dot-eu player domains.
Player from Bulgaria will have to move their accounts to the dot-bg domain and also download the new software. All player account details like vip points etc. will be carried forward.
Online poker rooms in Bulgaria operating without a license are blacklisted. Internet service providers in the country are expected to block people trying to access online poker sites without government approval.
Even PokerStars was blacklisted in 2013 as they did not have a government approved licensed. After applying and acquiring a license to operate a regulated online poker room in the country, the ban on PokerStars was revoked.
