PokerStars announced late last week that it has started a partnership with Casino Gran Madrid (Spain) to build a new PokerStars-branded poker room in the casino. The poker room will have more than 20 tables and space for over 200 players. According to PokerStars blog, the new poker room will most probably open its doors in the first quarter of 2013.
"Casino Gran Madrid is the premier casino destination in Madrid, which we already work with to host some of the largest and most successful poker tournaments in Spain. Establishing a permanent PokerStars-branded poker room in the casino will give more players the opportunity to play world-class poker with the high-quality player experience that PokerStars is known for," said Guy Temper, Group Head of Business Development for PokerStars.
"The poker room, with an innovative interior design, has been created to take poker to a new level - this extra dimension will catch the interest of all national and international players. Our ambition is to create an amazing atmosphere to play poker, adapting the lighting, the seats and the audiovisual support to the needs of the poker player," said Paula Arriaga, Deputy General Director at Casino Gran Madrid, about the project.
