Kevin Hart forms alliance with PokerStars to make poker fun again

The American comedian and actor, Kevin Hart, has bullied his way into a partnership with PokerStars in an attempt to use the game to promote togetherness on a global scale.

Poker has turned into a Netflix box set these past few months. There can only be one largest online poker room in the world, and both 888Poker and partypoker want that name sewn into their collar, but it’s currently woven into the school jumper of PokerStars and someone will have to rip if off their backs.

They have taken a lot of punches. And while doubled over in pain, their competitors have grown stronger. The partypoker MILLIONS brand being the strongest indication yet that we can now start betting some money on this thing.

Partypoker launch an event in Sochi, and PokerStars launch a bigger one. Partypoker launch a massive online poker festival. PokerStars launch a bigger one. Partypoker and 888Poker add some serious heavyweights to promote their brands, and PokerStars forge a relationship with one of the top A-List celebrities of the modern era. featured conferences & events: May 2017

New rules for Philippine online gambling sites’ support services

The Philippine online gambling industry is facing further changes to the rules involving its business process outsourcing (BPO) partnerships.

Last week, an announcement was posted to the website of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) alerting the industry as to the new “accreditation of Special Class of BPOs affected by the POGO [Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators] rules and Executive Order No. 13.”

The announcement defines this new Special Class of BPOs as those “servicing legitimately licensed gaming operators abroad and do not in anyway [sic] handle betting but purely product marketing and are not servicing any of PAGCOR POGO licensees.”

The criteria for being designated as a Special Class of BPO requires firms to adhere to all the requirements of regular POGO Service Providers. In addition, these BPOs can supply services only to “duly licensed gaming operators located abroad.”
