    For sure this is a step forward for Amaya and it's certainly a big step. This a completely new market for the company and hopefully they will offer a great product to the punters. I don't know if BetStars will be available in my country but hopefully they'll be sooner or later because I don't have doubts that this sportsbook will rock.

    Great news for UK gamblers, I think after this experience BetStars expected to extend this service available for the whole of Europe. I would love that my country also had this available betting service, certainly BetStars will maintain the same quality and standard of excellence PokerStars, would be perfect to bet with a trusted group as Amaya.
