PolerStars has entered the Italian market by launching roulette and blackjack on their website.

“The launch of casino games on PokerStars allows players to enjoy the convenience of playing poker and casino in one place,” said Sam Hobcraft, director of Casino for PokerStars and Full Tilt. “Our games are fun, safe and we are using our global experience to offer fun games for Italian players.”

A “Casino” tab was added to the website, so the players can use the same wallet for both poker and casino games. Though PokerStars said that their expansion into casino games brings an insignificant impact on their poker community, they do hope that on the longrun, the casino games availability on their website will attract more players to the poker tables.

The casino tab offers different versions of blackjack and roulette games that will be accessible with a minimum bet of €0.10.

PokerStars have also launched a live poker room in an Italian mountain resort.

“The new PokerStars LIVE room in Saint-Vincent aims to become a must-go place for Italy’s poker lover,” said Team PokerStars Pro Luca Pagano. “We’re excited to bring the best of PokerStars’ live poker experience to Northern Italy, and to give players the opportunity to play in a well-run, trusted and high-quality new card room.”

The launch was celebrated by a Mini Italian Poker Tour with 775 entrants creating a €225,525 prize-pool. The winner – Swiss player Jean Marc Bellini, took home €42,000.
