PartyPoker to jump into shared online poker liquidity bandwagon

Partypoker, the online poker brand of gambling giant GVC Holdings based at the Isle of Man, is getting closer to joining the shared online poker liquidity project.

The company sources revealed that last month that it was updating its .es website to make it look the same as its global .com website, which points towards an imminent launch of shared poker tables is imminent.

It was earlier reported that PartyPoker could go live with shared Franco-Spanish tables on the last day of April or May 1. But it did not happen.  Spanish and French players will have to wait for a little more before starting to play with players from the other countries. But the wait will not be long.

PartyPoker got the required license for the operation of shared poker tables from the French gambling regulator, ARJEL.

Apart from license, the companies also have to ensure that they comply with the technical requirements that the regulator of France, Spain, Italy, and Portugal agreed to in the summer of 2017 when the shared liquidity agreement was officialised.

Another requirement is that operators also must provide players from their European networks with the same playing experience as the players on their global websites. That is why PartyPoker had to adjust its local websites in preparation for the launch of its .eu network.

PokerStars is currently the only operator to offer shared poker tables. It merged its French and Spanish pools at the beginning of 2018 and is gearing up for a shared liquidity launch in Portugal. Partypoker has previously said that it would look to launch its .eu website in all four participating markets. However, the operator needs to obtain a license in Portugal, where PokerStars is currently the only regulated poker brand to be servicing Portuguese players.

MyRacehorse appoints Ted Durcan as bloodstock consultant
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Micro-share horse racing syndicate MyRacehorse has brought in two-time Classic-winning Jockey Ted Durcan as its Bloodstock Consultant in the UK and Ireland.

Durcan will partner with MyRacehorse to select horses both at public auction and privately as the company looks to expand its portfolio of horses available for customers to buy on its micro-share platform.

As well as riding winners in two British Classics, Durcan is a seven-time UAE champion jockey with over 25 years of race riding experience, having ridden 1,500 winners all over the world. His major wins include the Haydock Sprint Cup, the Oaks, St Leger and Sun Chariot Stakes.

After retiring from riding in 2018, Durcan started Durcan Bloodstock and has been purchasing horses privately as well as taking part in all the major European auctions for clients throughout Ireland, the UK, and abroad.

MyRacehorse offers racing fans the opportunity to participate in genuine racehorse ownership, starting at just £46.

Founded in the US in 2019, MyRacehorse now has over 50,000 owners, sharing ownership of 110 racehorses across America, Australia, the UK and Ireland including Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Authentic.

Now MyRacehorse is looking to continue to grow its unique model of racehorse ownership in the UK where it already has horses in training with John & Thady Gosden, Joseph O’Brien, George Baker and Michael O’Callaghan.

Discussing his appointment, Durcan said: “I am delighted to have been asked to join MyRacehorse to help the team source some exciting and fun horses for the season ahead.

“MyRacehorse gives everybody the chance to see how this amazing sport works from the inside out rather than the outside in. This is something that normally would not be achievable for most people, but MyRacehorse makes it happen.

“Being involved in racehorse ownership is fun, exciting and social. There are highs and lows but it’s the whole journey that makes this sport special, and it’s important to find new ways to share that journey.”

Kate Hardy, Director of Operations at MyRacehorse, added: “We are thrilled to have Ted working with MyRacehorse as we grow our stable here in Ireland and the UK.

“His extensive knowledge of the sport, and the unique perspective he has as an ex-jockey when it comes to evaluating form and conformation are invaluable to MyRacehorse.

“Ted’s track record and reputation speaks for itself, and we are extremely fortunate to have him join our team.”
