Americas Cardroom Sponsors South America’s Largest Casino

Uruguay Casino

One of the most popular online poker and casino brands, Americas Cardroom (ACR) has made another bold move to stand out from it’s competitors Bovada and BetOnline by sponsoring Latin America’s biggest casino.

In a story that broke mid-September on PR Newswire, GamblingNews and Poker.org, the flagship poker room of the Winning Poker Network (WPN) announced they were now the official sponsors of the Enjoy Punta del Este casino in Uruguay.

Casino Sponsorship Announcement

Posting to the Americas Cardroom blog on their website, rep Bob Garcia wrote:

“Punta del Este is more than just a casino. It also features 294 rooms with fabulous ocean views, 9 restaurants and bars, a spa, convention center, and so much more. What’s even better is you’ll have a chance to experience it for yourself.

That’s because our new partnership with Enjoy Punta del Este marks our return to hosting land-based poker tournaments. After a challenging 18 months, we’re happy that the pandemic is finally in the rearview mirror and we can start thinking about live poker tournaments again.”

South America Poker

News of this sponsorship is a sign of increasing interest in online gambling in South America.

We may see the return of the Latin America Poker Tour (LAPT) which ran from 2008 – 2016 sponsored by PokerStars just like the EPT and APPT (tournaments across Europe and the Asia Pacific).

The LAPT had tournament stops in Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Panama, Uruguay and the Bahamas.

Smaller events sponsored by PokerStars also ran within each country, e.g. the PokerStars Festival Chile at the Enjoy Viña del Mar casino. That festival saw online poker professionals who sharpened their skills at sites like PokerStars and casinoonlinechile.com come together and compete for a $500,000 prizepool.

The most successful Chilean poker professional on the all-time-money list is an online pro, Nicolas Fierro. He’s hit Supernova Elite status and won Sunday million events on PokerStars, his total lifetime earnings over $1.7 million.

Live Poker to Return?

If ACR are correct that the Covid-19 pandemic is finally coming to close, we can expect to see similar poker tournament series taking place in the Americas and around the world as land-based casinos re-open to the public.

Recently Chile and several Latin American countries have proposed amendments to gambling laws that could see gambling become easier to access.

The president of a Colombian gambling regulator Coljuegos famously stated that ‘gambling develops the intellect’.
