What is Poker Refugees?
Poker Refugees was founded in response to the needs of U.S. online poker players to continue grinding on international sites like Pokerstars. The company has helped nearly 300 online poker players and sports bettors get set up in foreign countries since Black Friday. Originally inspired by U.S. players who were essentially forced to move, Poker Refugees has since broadened its services, helping poker players from countries all over the world with a variety of travel-related, concierge, and consulting services. The company’s diverse and bilingual team helps players get set up fast and easy in many countries outside the U.S. where online poker and sports betting are legal. The service is 100% completely customized to serve the needs of online gambling professionals.
