The following statement and article might be of interest to the original poster. It's probably due to recent regulatory changes/developments though PokerStars hasn't announced the official stance regarding the matter yet.
Portugal‘s government has published the final details of the country’s new online gambling framework, paving the way for the new regime to kick in on June 29.
The county hopes the new regime will reap an annual €25m for the state but it remains to be seen how many operators will take Portugal’s bait. PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has stated that the new tax rates – particularly the tax on sports betting turnover, not revenue – could cause up to 80% of new operators to exit the market within the first year of the new regime. PwC estimated that this wholesale exodus could cost the country €20m over the first three years.
On the plus side, Portugal’s poker players will have access to licensed operators’ international liquidity pools, unlike the ring-fenced situations in France and Italy that have depressed poker revenues in those markets. Players also won’t have to pay taxes on their online poker winnings, a perk that reportedly has many Spanish players considering relocating to Portugal in order to escape their own country’s much more punitive tax situation.
