Online poker players in the Czech Republic will soon have the option to play at GGPoker. The company announced a partnership with King’s slots sro (a subsidiary of King’s Entertainment, the parent company of King’s Casino) on Monday to launch in the country.
The county’s ministry of finance recently granted GG a license for the launch of GGPoker.cz in the near future. Czech Republic becomes just the latest expansion location for GG.
“I’m delighted to work with King’s slots sro to extend GGPoker access to Czech players,” GG head of Europe Marco Trucco said in a news release. “We will have a lot to offer the market in 2023 and beyond, including World Series of Poker satellites, massive tournaments, the most exciting cash games, exclusive promotions and more!”
What can Czech players expect with GGPoker
The news comes as GGPoker continues to expand around the world. The company topped PokerStars over the last year as the largest online poker platform.
All Czech players will be part of GGPoker’s global player base. Many players praise the company’s poker software, regular tournaments, and major series. Czech players will now have access to all of these offerings.
“We are excited for this announcement and the continued development of our partnership with GGPoker globally,” King’s Entertainment Leon Tsoukernik said. “As the leading casino and poker venue in Europe and home of WSOP Europe, it was only natural for both our companies to come together to introduce GGPoker to our local audience in Czech Republic.
“The timing of this launch is particularly significant as King’s Casino celebrates 20 years in the market and our business continues to grow from strength to strength.”
