PokerStars quietly quieted the newly regulated Colombian market after online gambling regulator Coljuegos last week blocked the top of a list of 325 unlicensed online gambling operators.


PokerStars was one of the high-profile names mentioned on the blacklist, which was made public by Coljuegos in March. And it was at the end of June when Coljuegos issued the first license for the provision of online services; Local operator Aquila Global Group and its sports betting site became the first to receive the necessary approval to operate in Colombia's newly regulated gambling environment.

In his message to Colombian players, PokerStars explained that he was leaving the market due to the new regulatory regime and the fact that he was not licensed to operate legally in the country. However, the operator indicated that he was interested in obtaining such a license, which means that he can return to Colombia when he is given the necessary approval.

PokerStars leave Colombian market


"Dear Locoaiza, PokerStars will remove the option to play poker with real money to residents of Colombia as of Monday July 17 due to the license requirements in that country

PokerStars has debated, and will continue to debate, positively and proactively with Colombian government officials on this issue; We hope we can return to offer real money games in the future.

PokerStars wants to guarantee affected players that their funds are protected and available for withdrawal. Before making a withdrawal, remember to open the chests of stars rewards you have received so that they can be converted into the rewards included in those chests. We will also recommend that you spend your StarCoin balance at the rewards store; There you will find a cash refund of USD $ 1 in case you want to convert your StarsCoin into cash.

For more information about withdrawing real money games, including answers to any questions you may have, visit our FAQ page for all players who live in Colombia. No other service will be affected in all Latin America. "

It is important to remember with the outgoing country platform, about 47,168 registered users are left with no place to play of which on average 571 were active users of all events that the company PokerStars carried out and where real money was bet. Surely these users will move to other pages that work under an illegal framework filling these chests that do not drive the online gambling industry in Colombia.

Nebraska calling poker a skill game 

PokerStars leave Colombian market

Recently, state senator Justin Wayne has introduced a bill that would classify poker, sports betting and fantasy sports as skill games.

The new bill named LB990 would then legalize these activities. Other forms of gambling are not permitted under the state’s law, but games of skill are – so it would allow for players in the state to enjoy them without breaking any laws.

“Sports betting and fantasy sports require knowledge and skill. Knowledge of a sport and skill in analyzing and predicting the performance of athletes and the outcomes of sporting events is essential for a participant in sports betting or fantasy sports to be successful.” Nebraska state senator Justin Wayne

Now that there is a poker computer program that can’t be beaten, the provides that skill is an important factor when playing poker.

Before all of this, the case could be made that novice players will never outplay experienced ones. The introduction of poker-playing bots has only strengthened the argument.

It will likely be a while before Nebraska’s lawmakers make a decision on whether or not poker will be classified as a game of skill. We’ll keep you updated as the situation progresses, as this could have very important implications on the state’s gaming laws. It may mean that poker, daily fantasy sports and sportsbetting will be legalized in the state, making for a huge change in Nebraska’s gaming market.
