PokerStars has denied rumours it will soon accept bitcoin.
The world's largest online poker site said through a representative that it has "no immediate plans" to accept bitcoin.
The company went on to state that it is, however, reviewing its position and that it will continue to monitor the situation.
The PokerStars representative also flatly denied the veracity of reports that have claimed the poker site is finalising bitcoin integration citing unnamed company insiders, calling such publications "incorrect".
PokerStars boasts 50 million members and earned $1.4bn in estimated annual revenue as of 2010, which would make it one of the largest companies to date to accept bitcoin.
