PokerStars announced on its corporate blog that it will be unveiling the domain PokerStars.eu in the near future.
According to a post by Eric Hollreiser, Head of Corporate Communications for PokerStars, the online poker site now has a Malta Remote Gaming License and will launch PokerStars.eu to handle players across several European markets. More from Hollreisder:
You’ll be hearing more about our plans for Pokerstars.eu in the coming days, but its origins lie in our dedication to serving players’ needs. We expect our Malta license will immediately benefit players who have told us they want to share in the benefits – such as clarity around taxation – that some jurisdictions offer to sites with a license from European Union nations.
Currently, Italy and France operate in segregated markets, and it does not appear that PokerStars.it and PokerStars.fr would be included under the PokerStars.eu umbrella right now.
Hollreiser goes on to say that PokerStars believes it is licensed to operate in more markets than any other online poker site, and that it is committed to supporting regulatory efforts around the world.

We will have more on what the launch of PokerStars.eu means for European players as more information becomes available.
