COME TO SPAIN, WINAMAX0 Comments
Step by step, day after day, the long-awaited date is approaching when we’ll be able to play at the “international tables”, those of shared liquidity.
If the politicians keep their word, the unification of markets will come at the end of this year 2017.
The shared liquidity will probably leave us in a new and hopeful scenario, where we will not only have two strong online poker rooms, as we now have in .es (PokerStars and 888poker).
In the new shared regulated market, if all goes well, together with the two mentioned, PartyPoker, iPoker and Winamax will appear strongly. The latter is the one we are most looking forward to. In France, Winamax was able to take hegemony away from PokerStars. And that has a lot of merit.
Currently, according to PokerScout.com, Winamax.fr is the 5th online poker room in the world. Only the open platforms of PokerStars, IDNPoker, 888poker and PartyPoker surpass it. Wina’ is by far the strongest of all online trading rooms on regulated markets.
Winamax is carefully preparing its entry into the “Latin” regulated markets. A few months ago he was looking for staff to manage the theatres in Portugal, Italy and Spain. In Italy, he already has a license, as he has bought the Betclic license. And just recently they announced two new signings, the Italian Mustapha Kanit and the Spanish Adrian Mateos, who have joined his team of professional players, including the Belgian Davidi Kitai or the French Sylvain Loosli and Gaëlle Baumann.
At present we don’t know when Winamax will start trading in Spain; whether it will start before or after the start of shared liquidity.
If you start earlier, we will be happy to have a room at our disposal that will offer tournaments, cash tables and sits with traffic and prizes very similar to those of PokerStars.es.
To give you an idea, Winamax is currently organizing its MTT series, the Winamax Circus, parallel to the FCOOP of PokerStars.fr. The Circus is made up of 104 events, which have a total of 3 million euros guaranteed. The tournaments have an average buy-in of 12€, which means that they can be played by a large number of participants.
The FCOOP, by contrast, has a calendar of 41 events. The guaranteed amount is less than 2 million euros and the average buy-in is 84€…
The comparison is odious…, but it certainly favours Winamax.
The arrival of Winamax will be great news for online poker in Spain. Hopefully they will come soon and compete against the all-powerful PokerStars.es. The players will be the winners.
