PokerStars Announces Special Events on its 10th Anniversary

Operating since December 2001, PokerStars is completing its 10th anniversary this year. The year hasn’t been great for the poker room as the US Department of Justice pushed PokerStars out of the American market with allegations of conducting illegal operations. The poker site faced a significant loss in its revenue due to the indictment. Nevertheless, PokerStars is set to celebrate its 10th anniversary in a special way. It is offering a set of attractive promotions to players.
