Regulators from Spain, Italy, France and Portugal are discussing the possibility of pooling liquidity in their online poker networks.
The four regulatory bodies,France (ARJEL), Italy (AAMS), Portugal (Santa Casa da Misericordia de Lisboa) and Spain (DGOJ), met at the end of June in Spain to discuss information sharing and other issues.
But in a statement from Arjel they confirmed that plans for some form of shared liquidity were also raised at the meeting.
‘Discussions took place on the conditions necessary for a possible shared liquidity in certain games among some of the countries participating to the meeting,’ a statement from Arjel said.
‘The four regulators agree on the importance, in the future, of extending the cooperation to other European countries that share similar regulatory principles and strategies,’ it added.
The next meeting is to be held in Paris in December 2012.
