We want to acknowledge and welcome all poker players around the world for whom English is not a first language, including more than 200 million native Portuguese speakers in Portugal, Brazil, Africa and Asia Pacific.
San Jose, Costa Rica (PRWEB) January 10, 2008
Leading online poker community Poker Source Online is now fully translated into Portuguese, as part of their strategy to expand into new markets where poker is becoming increasingly popular. Portuguese speakers will now be able to access all of PSO's bonuses, information and free gifts in their own language.
Sean Jones, Head of Communications at PSO, is very enthusiastic about this move. "Poker is becoming global," he said. "We want to acknowledge and welcome all poker players around the world for whom English is not a first language, including more than 200 million native Portuguese speakers in Portugal, Brazil, Africa and Asia Pacific." Jones expects this move will attract many new customers to what is already a very busy online community: "PSO has grown non-stop since its creation in 2004 - as we speak we have over 148,000 members, and new ones keep joining our ranks every day. The reason for our popularity is that we constantly strive to offer something new to our members, which is why we decided to open up PSO to other languages, and poker is especially active in Portuguese now with the opening of the large Macau and Brazilian markets."
PSO's main attractive for poker players are the free poker gifts and cash, and according to their website they have shipped over $5,800,000 in free gifts since 2004. Besides giving out gifts to their members for playing online poker, PSO also organizes exclusive monthly freerolls and poker leagues and negotiates special rakeback deals with the major poker sites.
For poker players who like doing their research before deciding which poker room to join or which poker book to buy, PSO offers a thorough Resource Center with expert reviews of poker sites, books, software and DVDs as well as biographies of top players and poker strategy articles. The PSO news page is updated daily with the latest industry news and gossip, and the PSO forum is a lively meeting place for sharing opinions and tips with other poker fans. All of these features are now available in Portuguese.
