    Default partypoker enters Czech Republic online poker market

    GVC Holdings-owned partypoker has joined PokerStars and has become the second international operator to obtain a gambling license in Czech Republic, according to a report by Poker Industry PRO on Thursday.

    From PokerNews:

    While PokerStars used existing subsidiary TSG Interactive plc in Malta for their license application, which was granted on Jan. 28, 2017, partypoker obtained theirs through the local brick-and-mortar King’s Casino in Rozvadov.

    Now listed as the operator for online services on partypoker.cz, King’s Casino has long been a partner of partypoker, previously hosting MILLIONS Germany and Grand Prix events. King’s will also play host to WPT Germany in August next year as part of partypoker’s recently announced 2019 partnership with WPT.
    Following revamped regulations, PokerStars re-launched operations in the Czech Republic in February 2017. Though partypoker also applied for a license last year, the operator later revoked their application on grounds of incongruence with EU law, stating at that time:

    “We fully support the development of a regulated and well-functioning online gaming market in the Czech Republic and we hope that the authorities will consider the issues raised and will cooperate with the operator on the successful attainment of this objective.”

    It can be assumed that the deterrents that kept GVC from pursuing a license before, have been resolved as they join the Czech online gaming market through the local land-based operator King’s Casino. With the license granted on Nov. 10, the partypoker.cz domain is expected to be up and running in the near future.
