    Default Portugal submits poker liquidity sharing model to the EU

    According to several reports last week, Portugal, a hot iGaming market, has finalized a model for sharing online poker liquidity with other regulated jurisdictions, potentially setting a landmark trend in motion for online poker.

    The model was presented by Portugal gambling regulator Serviço de Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos (SRIJ) earlier this week andr equires a waiting period of three months, setting April as the target date for any shared liquidity agreements signed by Portugal to take effect.

    While large European markets have recently agree to drop ring fencing and let their players compete at international online poker tables, the SRIJ proposal is of further note because the Portugal proposal reaches out to regulated markets beyond Europe as well, provided those models meet necessary technical standards for integration and pooling . . . Portugal’s submission of a model of technical standards is the next vital step in realizing shared liquidity of online poker proceeds between two or more European regulated jurisdictions.
