partypoker obtains Italian gaming license

Real money online poker coming to Italian players in April 2020

partypoker has obtained a gaming license to operate in the Italian poker market.

Effective April 1, 2020, the license permits partypoker to offer real money online poker games to players in Italy.

The license agreement will see some of partypoker’s global tournament titles brought to the Italian market from April 1, after an absence of four years.

The full 2020 tournament schedule for Italian players will be available here in the near future.

partypoker managing director, Tom Waters, said: “Despite recent changes that restrict marketing in Italy, the poker market there remains an exciting opportunity for partypoker.

“We will be looking to improve and expand on our product and offering over 2020 and bring a different option for the Italian poker market.”
