Authorised to offer remote sports betting product.

PokerStars has been awarded a remote bookmaker’s licence from the Irish Revenue Commissioners allowing the operator to offer sports betting to players in Ireland.

PokerStars’ existing poker and casino games in Ireland will continue to operate under its European license from Malta, the company said.

“We’re very pleased to receive a license for our sports betting offering on PokerStars in Ireland,” commented Stephen Fisk, managing director of sports betting for PokerStars. “Our operation of poker, casino games, and now sports betting shows that players trust us to deliver a variety of games in a fun and exciting way. We look forward to building on this by operating under this new license.”
