Pokerstars.co.uk and Pokerstars.ie in the pipelines?
Due to the introduction of the new gambling legislation in Ireland there will be some changes on the Irish and UK gambling market soon. There might be an introduction of a new Pokerstars.ie website and afterwards possibly a Pokerstars.co.uk one too.
With the introduction of the Irish Gamling Control Bill online casinos, bookmakers and betting exchanges will need an Irish gaming licence. When the operator is located within Ireland but also when the enterprise is located in another country. As soon as the draft is through operators will have to apply for a licence and will have to pay taxes too. We are pretty sure that Pokerstars.ie will exist on the Irish market due to Pokerstars occurence in many other regulated countries.

Shocking Pokerstars advertisement banned from TV censored
Pokerstars already exists (or soon will) with special domains on other regulated markets like:
- France – pokerstars.fr
- Spain – pokerstars.es
- Germany – pokerstars.de
Pokerstars.ie and pokerstars.co.uk does not exist yet, but due to the new Irish gambling legislation this might be the case soon.
