Portugal’s gambling regulator SRIJ has recently authorized 888 to share poker liquidity with Spain. News about the operator receiving regulatory green light to join the shared online poker liquidity project arrive a little over five months after 888 received a license to operate in the Portuguese market.
The shared liquidity project was launched early in 2018 and was the result of prolonged negotiations between the gambling regulators of France, Spain, Italy, and Portugal. The project was introduced in a bid to revitalize Europe’s underperforming online poker segment. Italy later on dropped out from the scheme, but France, Spain, and Portugal have moved on to its materialization.
