Its impossible for them to destroy stars, they obv want to clean up house, start afresh and probably float in the future.. but first.. they have to clean up house and get their **** in good legal standing.

Then turn stars in a sports book and add all sort of other vertical x-sales to the brand, platform and players.

I dunno. I'm just speculating again.

Re: POKERSTARS DOES NOT OFFER REAL MONEY GAMES IN YOUR AREA

Online gambling revenues have quadrupled over the past 10 years to $36.9-billion... they cant possibly **** it up even if they wanted to.

The market will get much bigger before it gets smaller.

I'll shutup now. sorry

You ae right though that there are other markets where Stars has yet to pull out of with similar bans.
Last I checked North-Korea and Yemen had no regulation prohibiting online gambling

While I agree UK and/or NJ licensing is most likely behind this, black and white really has nothing to do with it.

I always went with a Margaritha. It was basically a tell, I don't think I ever saw someone ordering one that wasn't a lag

Re: POKERSTARS DOES NOT OFFER REAL MONEY GAMES IN YOUR AREA

Does anyone here worry that pokerstars will leave Canada soon?


Its September 30 here in Canada but in Malaysia its October 1st when the person posted this thread.


Does anyone think pokerstars will leave canada tomorrow as its October 1st? I also heard rumors about pinnaclesports leaving canada in september 1 or october 1 as well.


To those players in those countries that pokerstars no longer allow real money play, do you know when you will be allowed to make a withdraw? I probably assume its a 1 time withdraw?


I assume if you guys relocate, you still have to withdraw your balance first before you relocate?

Would you mind expounding a bit? If it ties in with UK/NJ/USA (which we agree it clearly does) why wouldn't black/white have anything to do with it?

THIS.

Where is the official statement from Stars?
Before all the gossip and speculation gets out of control, Stars need to provide some solid facts.

Re: POKERSTARS DOES NOT OFFER REAL MONEY GAMES IN YOUR AREA

Oh, a short statement was released to Pokerfuse.

Quote:
Quote:
“Our management team and advisors regularly review our operations market-by-market to assess commercial opportunities and business risks for our brands,” reads a statement issued to pokerfuse Tuesday.

“Following a recent review we have decided to stop offering real money games to players who are physically located in, or have a registered address in, a limited number of countries.”
A full list of affected countries has apparently not been released.

Re: POKERSTARS DOES NOT OFFER REAL MONEY GAMES IN YOUR AREA

I wonder how many residents of the Vatican City play on Pokerstars… Apparently there are 839 people who live there, being either clergy or members of the Swiss Guard...

Re: POKERSTARS DOES NOT OFFER REAL MONEY GAMES IN YOUR AREA

No doubt in my mind that the United States government is behind this. Too much of a coincidence with pokerstars headed into the New Jersey market and this quote from New Jersey State Senator Raymond Lesniak, "“… Soon to be countries!” Funny how everything played out after Black Friday until now.

With more desperate players with nothing to do, this will only increase terrorism.

WHY DO YOU HELP ISIS POKERSTARS?

The thing is though if you are Poker Stars would you rather be able to get back in the USA market or keep those countries listed that the just stop offering real money play to.... If i were them i would glady get rid of those listed countries to get back the USA player pool..... USA player pool? or

Turkey ,Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Egypt, Qatar, Jordan, Kuwait, Senegal, Nigeria, Tanzania, United Republic of Bahrain, Afghanistan, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, Holy See (Vatican City) Iran, Iraq, Syria, Zimbabwe, Libya, Sudan, North Korea, Cuba, Myanmar, Yemen player pool? which one is more valuable?

Could this all be a part of a deal Amaya made to get access to US? Some antiterrorist bull**** from whoever they negotiate with?
