The launch happened on the 29th of May, meaning that players are now able to bet on a number of different sporting results. This can all be done by the PokerStars 7 client software and the sports betting function can now be found in the lobby.

At the moment, there is only the ability to bet on a few sports, with those being football, tennis, rugby, basketball, ice hockey and volleyball but they insist that there will be many more betting options added as they go along.

After having a quick look for, the odds are very comparable to that of other established online sports betting services such as Betfair and William Hill

Anyone that wishes to place bets will be able to do so either on their desktop, or via their Android or iOS based mobile phones and tablets. If you have a current account with PokerStars, you will not need to worry about creating a new one as this has all be incorporated into the client along with their poker and casino game offerings.

It will certainly be an exciting experience for players over the coming months as they witness the growth of the new PokerStars sports betting operation

In other news, Amaya Gaming, the owner of PokerStars has also finalized the sale of Cadillac Jack to casino gaming designers AGS. The deal for the B2B land-based gaming solutions business is said to be worth around $380.7 million.

The deal will include Amaya selling AGS, all of their shares of Amaya America Corporation which is the parent company of Cadillac Jack. Any proceeds from the deal were used to repay some of the debts of Cadillac Jack and some of the other associated costs involved.

Amaya have certainly been busy over the last few years and it seems that they are also close to a joint purchase of BwinParty Digital Plc as well. That deal would include both PartyPoker and the online sportsbook Bwin.

It is also not too long since they purchased the Rational Group, the parent company of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. Since then they have been pushing both previously predominantly poker sites further into the online gambling industry by adding casino games and as mentioned above, sports betting.

Whether these casinos will be accessible with casino bonus codes in the future is yet to be seen but either way, it will be interesting to see how much further Amaya go.
