Amaya Gaming, the new owners of Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars have come under fire in the last twenty four hours as Hungary has now officially blocked PokerStars from operating within its borders. The Hungary Gaming Supervision Department has opted out to block more online gambling related websites, one of those websites now includes the poker giant PokerStars. This has come as a shock to many as PokerStars is an honorable online business that adheres to the law, unfortunately this didn’t come into mind with the Hungary GSD.
As of right now several PokerStars domains have been blocked by the Hungary Gaming Supervision Department. Party Poker, Betsson, Bet365, Ladbrokes, Bet-At-Home and SportingBet have all also been blocked by the department. This has resulted in the Hungary Online Gambling Market being dried up for table based games and video slots. There is no word if Hungary plans to regulate the market as well, this could very well mean that Hungary is going down the same route that the US took nearly a decade ago.
This doesn’t mean that Amaya Gaming still isn’t in the Hungary Online Gambling Market. PokerStars sister site “Full Tilt Poker” has been left unscathed from the recent blockade in the eastern European country. This means that you can still experience what Amaya Gaming has to offer.
Those who live in Hungary and want an incredible online poker experience can do so by registering with Full Tilt Poker. You will find that you will have more than an enjoyable time while playing their poker games.
