PokerStars awarded sports betting license in Denmark

4 December 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Danes will soon be able to enjoy the thrill of betting on sports in Denmark on PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. brand. The Spillemyndigheden (Danish Gambling Authority) has awarded PokerStars a temporary one-year sports betting license, and PokerStars plans to apply for a full five-year license.

PokerStars plans to launch sports betting in Denmark soon. PokerStars' existing online casino license in Denmark will continue to allow PokerStars to offer poker and casino games, and PokerStars plans to launch casino games in Denmark after sports betting, later in 2016.

"Online betting is an exciting pastime for sports fans and provides a way for them to put their passion and knowledge to the test in competition with friends and other fans," said Eric Hollreiser, vice president of corporate communications for Amaya. "We're pleased to offer sports betting under a licence that ensures local oversight of the industry and allows PokerStars to bring its gaming expertise and high standards of integrity, compliance and security to Danish bettors. This furthers Amaya's commitment to the responsible growth of online gaming by supporting local regulation that protects players, creates a viable, competitive marketplace and provides revenue for local governments."

PokerStars.dk player funds are protected in secure and segregated accounts, separate from operational funds and are always available to players.
