GGPoker continues expanding and announced its launch into the Romanian market on Monday. The company operates in the company via WindGG, a joint venture between GGPoker Network and Skywind Holdings.
The move allows for players in Romania to access the international GGPoker Network. Those in the country can now join in on some of the largest poker tournaments in the world.
GG granted regulated launch in Romania
The new Romanian platform received a local license issued by the country’s regulator, the National Gambling Office (ONJN). The site now offers a fully localized GGPoker experience. Some of those features required by the Romanian regulator include:
- customer assistance in the local language
- responsible gaming programs
- customer protection features
Daniel Negreanu is GGPoker’s best-known global ambassador and a six-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner. He’s also a proud descendent of a Romanian family and is popular among poker fans in the country.
As part of the launch, Negreanu will welcome and engage with players via dedicated promotions and GGPoker Romania advertising. GG officials praised the company’s new partner in the country.
“We are delighted to be partnering with GGPoker,” Skywind Holdings CEO Hilary Stewart-Jones said in a news release. “Skywind’s philosophy is local partnerships with a global scale and we are very excited and proud to be part of this Romanian initiative.”
Continued global expansion and growth
The launch comes as GG continues to expand its reach. The company has moved into other European countries over the last couple years and continues seeking entry into regulated countries.
The company also made news in 2021 by topping PokerStars for the top spot in the world. According to the PokerScout Online Poker Sites Traffic Report, the two companies have bounced back and forth for the top spot.
As of Monday, GG had a seven-day average of 5,800 cash game players. Adding another market pleases company officials and expands the company’s footprint.
“This is another important step in the expansion of GGPoker into regulated European markets,” GGPoker head of Europe Marco Trucco said. “Romanian players now have access to the best poker software, the biggest tournaments and promotions in the industry.”
