PartyPoker closes access to players from Baltic countries
Recently, the top poker rooms are changing the company's policy and trying to get out of the "gray markets", relying on those regions where online poker is legal at the legislative level.
Last week, PartyPoker players from the Baltic countries (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia) began to receive letters from the poker room support service.
These emails state that starting from the second week of June, PartyPoker will no longer provide access to its services in their countries.
This means that players from these countries will be denied access to the poker room, online casino and sports betting from Entain (a holding company that includes PartyPoker).
Perhaps this decision is also due to the fact that since 2016 in the Baltic countries, local gambling regulators have been blocking poker rooms, as well as online betting sites and online casinos.
In this way, PartyPoker wants to clear its reputation and enter the regulated markets, as their closest competitors are already actively doing.
