The license was awarded at REEL Europe Ltd, which is a division of Amaya and this will be the company that will operate the Pokerstars website in Portugal.

Although the license has benn granted at REEL Europe Ltd, the new website is not ready yet. Its development will be completed soon, as it was stated by the people who are in charge of the project.
