“We want to be there in time and we want to make sure that we are, as usual, the market leader when it comes to poker.”
Ashkenazi said his chief operating officer is currently in India to finalize details of the agreement with the local partner, which already has a license. He didn’t name the company.
The deal will give PokerStars access to all of India except "a couple" of states, Ashkenazi added.
