Following on from entering into a licensing agreement in November of last year, partypoker has announced the launch of online operations within the Czech Republic, in partnership with King’s Resort.

Allowing players to access the site’s global liquidity dotcom poker games via its desktop software client, it is detailed that games are due to be rolled out across mobile in the near future.

Currently, all players wishing to play online at partypoker in the Czech Republic are required to undergo physical ID verification, which can be carried out at various post offices throughout the country, and will soon be offered onsite at King’s Casino in Rozvadov.

The licence sees partypoker become the second international operator to gain an online gambling licence in the country, and only the second licensed online poker room.

Tom Waters, managing director of partypoker, said of the launch: “We are delighted to be working with King’s Resort to offer online poker in the Czech Republic. We have some ambitious and exciting plans for 2019 in partnership with King’s, and there will be plenty on offer for Czech players at partypoker.

“We look forward to announcing a host of launch promotions and events, alongside details of our product offering in the coming weeks.”

King’s Resort, which features two restaurants as well as three, four and five-star accommodation alongside its casino, in situated roughly two hours drive from Prague and Munich.

Leon Tsoukernik, King’s Resort owner, said: “It is a great honour to co-operate on such an interesting project with such an important partner on a global level for us. We will be able to offer players great connection between the online and live game, to maximise their gaming experience.

“King’s Resort is home to Europe’s largest poker room, and regularly hosts some of the biggest events in the world working alongside the premier brands in live poker, like the WSOPE, WPT and partypoker live millions.

“This renewed partnership with partypoker further consolidates our position as a major player in the global poker industry, and represents another step forward in our commitment to players.”
