| Are they merging the two company or just the ownership changed right now? I would not mind getting those betting options (escalators, special offers SKY does every premier league or champions league rounds) seeing from Stars as well, but SKY is notorious on limiting winning players so there's that.|

| Stars Groups, the online poker industry leader, has become even bigger by purchasing Sky Betting & Gaming for US$4.7 billion. What's going to happen to Sky Poker players? Will they be able to keep their existing username after the merge?|

| Business goes well for the amaya group and they try by other methods, to capture the market, directly by buying names in the industry of poker or betting. This is very good for pokerstars owner because they will recover the money in the future. They made the right choice.|

| Reminds a bit on the merger between bwin and Party. Also one company with the poker room and the other with the online bookie. After a good start their base started to shrink. And at least we know now, why players at Stars have to pay a higher rake. |

| we can see that poker stars owners want to have more betting market and to have lot of new sites by they ownership and they take huge matket with every site that they buy!we will see what this what will bring to players!|

| When you read about the amounts of money involved in this deal, it does make your eyes water. $4.7 Billion to buy these companies, just goes to show the profit margin in gambling is still huge|
| juppi47||4/24/2018 7:20:43 AM GMT|
| Good purchase by stars but I still think the acquisition of skybet don't make them a major player in sports betting as bet365, bwin and williamhill are the giants in sports betting.|
| Sorin888||4/24/2018 1:50:51 PM GMT|
| The battle is for US market,betting on sports in some form is legal in four states. Sky gets a cash infusion as it is targeted for takeover by both 21st Century Fox Inc. and Comcast Corp. Stars Group took a big part of Australia’s CrownBet Holdings Ltd.( which bought the Australian unit of William Hill).Poker business look unstable for Ashkenazi,so they push casino and sport betting over poker|
| godoy||4/24/2018 3:49:27 PM GMT|
| what to talk now with this acquisition pokerstar will get even bigger and more focused on the game of chance because that of the more money apromesa of easy money attracts more than all poker and a sport that one has to study to learn to profit now roulette home nikel and sports betting and gambling |

| A well known betting company in UK.|
They have eliminated even more of the competition out there.
Good for them, but i believe it is bad for the players.
Good thing that some of the companies like William Hill, still holding....

| well 4.7 billion of dollars is really something, we are not talking about "mere" 4.7 millions here, no we're talking about 4,700,000,000 of dollars. talk about a few zeros, well I personally have only association with stars and zeros and that is a zero dollar bankroll|
| bowie1984||4/24/2018 11:32:49 PM GMT|
| It is indeed something but not really 'something' if you know what I mean. More people will be aware how out of order gambling affects lifes the less money these comapnies will be making in the future. It is kinda futureproof business since taking/making bets is old as humanity, but I can see a strong decline in their gross profits all across the board...|

Exactly. $4.7 Billion is so huge sum, and it show, how the poker sites earn from players. What's mean hundreds of freerolls with $1000 prize pot compared to this huge amount! Even if Stars will be offer 1000 freerolls per day with $1000 prize pot, they will spend this sum in over 12 years!!!
| dule-vu||4/25/2018 9:48:37 AM GMT|
| hope that this wont be normal,that such a big companies buy other betting and gambling site,because its better when you have more bigger sites,that they fight for every player and give bigger odds and bonuses!|
| Gerimantas||4/25/2018 4:24:30 PM GMT|
| Wow so much money in gambling business, this is because people lose a lot of money i think. Of course now pokerstars not very good poker room so maybe they are not good owners for this company|
| godoy||4/25/2018 4:32:32 PM GMT|
| with this purchase the ps will become a once more a monopoly efara with the sports betting which has been making strings with poker since since Aymara assumed the ps the poker was thrown in the trash and gave place to all that and against poker leading the site for the world of gambling now is complete the gg poker sheik that the new world will come from gambling odds|
| dule-vu||4/26/2018 11:33:19 AM GMT|
| now you can imagine how much money people lose on gambling,when they can buy just one site for this kind of sick amount and then that they know that will return this investment and that will earn money from it!its just sick!|
| CALICUL||4/26/2018 4:24:10 PM GMT|
| It's normal to expand when you make money. In addition amaya group has to win here with taxes to the state. Instead of entering to budget of Canada they buying another business. This is investment: Full tilt, Sky Betting and Gaming and i think PKR is also of pokerstars owner.|
| Mober||4/26/2018 9:21:47 PM GMT|
| No matter what changes have happened the last few years, all over the planet,|
gambling is till and will be a huge industry.
The only reason for the changes was, to rearrange, in which pockets the money goes.

| The amount of money that drives this betting business is impressive. Pokerstars wants to cover everything! He is still a kid when it comes to sports betting, but little by little he will get his place. Unfortunately I do not know if it will be so good for the players. They will attract many and I think that less and less they will worry about the users, if they ever did.|
| Gerimantas||4/29/2018 4:17:17 PM GMT|
| For many players it is not very good to have a lot of companies with one owner, this is because many promotions not offer because it is not good business for owner. So like player i think it is not good news|
| CALICUL||4/30/2018 4:28:11 PM GMT|
| If pokerstars did not steal so much money from the players with various commissions that have increased or another methods then things will change for the better. I understand they stay pretty good in this industry but if they do not do something for the players, then they will suffer a lot. They buy completely different competitors but that does not help too much if they do not have a good tactic for amaya and his clients.|
| pajalnick||4/30/2018 7:07:21 PM GMT|
| PokerStars takes various attempts to occupy a leading place in the world of online games ..... Seeing in the example, a lot of poker rooms that also accept rates Pokstaroz decided to keep up with their competitors ..... the way is probably right but the most important thing is what will be the odds|

Sometimes they offer great odds on obscure events but I get the feeling that this is going to change now that Sky's traders are in the buiding as well being able to filter out the sharps.
| Mober||5/1/2018 2:15:58 PM GMT|
| They are expanding all the time.|
Wonder how many more companies they are going to acquire in the near future.
First they had only poker games, now they are in, in all the sectors of online gambling.
It wouldnt be a surprise seeing them in the "land" industry also...
