The new rules allow licensed online poker operators to pool liquidity with other countries that signed an accord in July 2017.

An amendment to Portugal’s online gambling law that sets out the technical standards for shared liquidity in online poker has been published in the country’s official gazette.

Regulation 115/2018 was published in Series 2 of the country’s daily bulletin last Friday, and it follows on from an addendum published the week prior.

However, according to a clarification statement from the SRIJ this week, it appears that further publication of the text of shared liquidity is still required before online poker operators in Portugal can combine player pools with other markets.
