Poker Operator of the Year
2019 Gaming Intelligence Poker Operator of the Year
“With such dominance, there can be no other winner,” said one of our judges. But PokerStars wins this award for more than the weight of its numbers.
The world’s leading poker site continues to innovate and push the boundaries of online poker. This sustained focus on product improvement drove revenue up 19 per cent in the first half of 2018 and despite a blip in Q3, it continues to power on. Products such as Spin & Go, The Deal and its virtual-reality PokerStars VR offering continue a drive to bring casino-style mechanics to the poker table.
Its Stars Rewards programme has played a major role and significantly contributed to this growth, while the shared player liquidity arrangement between the markets of Italy, France and Spain, has re-energised the sector and been maximised by the company. “You can’t beat Stars when it comes to poker,” said one judge. Amen to that.
