Bad news for more poker players - Party Poker & BwinParty block new signups

Postby liviu2000 » Thu Apr 25, 2013 10:21 pm

PartyPoker will block new signups from 18 European, South American countries on 30 April 2013

New players from 18 countries in the EU and South America will be blocked from signing up to bwin.party's online gaming products, according to an email sent to bwin.party affiliates on Friday.
New account signups will be blocked on April 30, and affiliates are requested to remove any associated marketing material by that date. Existing accounts will remain open, and affiliate commission to those accounts will continue to be paid.
Many EU countries on the list have made moves recently to curb or prohibit online poker. Greece, Poland, Romania and Cyprus all make the list.
Finland and Serbia, which have their own small regulated online poker markets, are also listed, and it seems that the removal from these markets was for “commercial reasons.”
Three South American countries—Argentina, Brazil and Colombia—will also be blocked. To some, these markets were key potential growth opportunities; PokerStars’ Ronaldo signing underscores one competitor’s commitment to the market.
The reason behind the decision is likely a mix of regulatory concern and simple cost analysis. The remaining countries on the list—Armenia, Belarus, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Slovenia and Ukraine—may represent markets either too small or simply unprofitable for bwin.party to maintain operations in.
Party can now be expected to focus efforts in the US and on the key white markets where it operates: the UK, where it recently launched a new skin under the Zynga Poker brand; France, Spain and Italy, where they hold active licenses; and Belgium, where they recently bowed to regulatory pressure and now operate under license exclusively on the bwin.BE brand.
Who want to have an account to Party Poker ( from countries banned for new signups ) this is the last chance, you can do it until 30 April...

Party Poker blocheaza inscrierile jucatorilor din Romania si alte 17 tari

Party Poker blocheaza inscrierile din Romania

Conform unui e-mail trimis afiliatilor bwin.party, incepand cu data de 30 aprilie 2013 crearea de conturi noi pe site-urile retelei va fi blocata pentru jucatorii din 18 tari din Europa si America de Sus, printre care si Romania.

Pana acum lista cuprinde urmatoarele tari: Argentina, Armenia, Belarus, Brazilia, Columbia, Croatia, Cipru, Finlanda, Grecia, Ungaria, Letonia, Lituania, Macedonia, Polonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Ucraina.

Grecia, Polonia, Romania si Cipru au fost incluse pe lista datorita recentelor modificari legislative, care fie reduc drepturile operatorilor, ale jucatorilor sau chiar interzic pokerul online.

Party Poker concentra isi va concentra probabil eforturile pentru a promova brandul in tari cu o legislatie clara, precum: Franta, Spania sau Italia, sau tari cu un potential mare de crestere, cum este piata din Marea Britanie unde a lansat un nou site in parteneriat cu Zynga Poker.

Ciudat este ca in timp ce bwin.party a inclus pe lista tarilor care nu vor mai putea face noi inscrieri 3 tari din America de Sud – Argentina, Brazilia si Columbia, PokerStars tocmai si-a intensificat eforturile de promovare in aceasta zona a lumii semnand chiar un contract de colaborare cu Ronaldo.
Cine vrea cont pe Party Poker este momentul sa o faca pana la 30 Aprilie...
