      heya

      i went to tenerife for vacation and thought that i can play some poker... well, apparently its not that easy, since its all regulated and stuff, so a couple questions:

      1. if i got an account on pokerstars.ee - how can i play? google dns and getting ps.es wouldnt let me play still. Any way to make it work?
      2. which rooms can i register and play in without the spanish NIF number?
      3. where can i play in live casinos at reasonable stakes?

      cheers!

      hey dubadal

      I would advise that you contact our support team and give them the details of your query through a ticket and see what they suggest. Alternatively you can contact pokerstars as they should have a viable solution.

      Regards,
      Luke

      I actually have a similar query, I'm living in Spain and I don't have NIF or NIE number and want to play on PokerStars.

      Hopefully we can find a way.

      well, the sad truth is: no way to legally play online in spain without spanish residency. luckily the weather and a certain lady kept me busy :)

      thanks for PS quick support.

      PS:
      Dear dubadal,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      As the Spanish market is regulated by the laws of the Spanish government, it is not possible for any player to play at on of the Spanish poker rooms. In order to play at one of these rooms, it is necessary to have Spanish residence. If you don't have a valid address in Spain it is sadly not possible to create an account at one of our Spanish partner rooms. This of course includes PokerStars.es.
