PokerStars has moved all of its Dutch players on to the poker room's .eu domain. The Dutch players will join other PokerStars players from Sweden, Poland, Slovenia, Romania and Finland, who have all been moved since February.
PokerStars has moved all of its Dutch players from the current .com client to the new .eu domain, according to an email sent out to players today.
PokerStars launched the .eu client back in February this year with a new license from the Maltese Lottery and Gaming Authority.
The launch had little effect on play on the site, other than a move from the former jurisdiction in the Isle of Man.
Home of many poker professionals
Some of the largest tournaments
Many satellites to televised events
Highly sophisticated software
Additionally, the move also meant that players would no longer have to pay taxes of their winnings, as profits made by EU players playing on a site regulated within the Union are technically tax free.
The first players to feel the change were Finnish and Swedish customers, who were moved already when the new .eu client went live in February.
Since then, players from Poland, Slovenia, Romania and now also the Netherlands have joined in, with other nations reportedly on their way.
The move is compulsory for Dutch players who wish to continue to play on PokerStars and will happen automatically once an update of the PokerStars client is carried out.
Once moved, players will find themselves with the same options as before, including stake and game selections, as well as all deposit and withdrawal options will remain unchanged.
PokerStars.eu will add to a growing offering from the world's biggest poker site
, which by now includes PokerStars.com
, PokerStars.net, PokerStars.eu, as well as nation-specific clients for regulated markets in countries like Estonia, Denmark, Italy and France.
