King.com: Competitive safe gaming for Europe and the world

Do you love games? Do you enjoy playing at your best? Then King.com, the world’s largest skill gaming site, is for you. Every month, King.com hosts more than 40 million games played. We host games for millions of players from more than 50 countries and we think you will fit right in!

In Skill Gaming, players take part in tournaments where skill is decisive in determining the outcome. The players back themselves to win with small stakes, and the winner takes the pot. We charge a small administration fee for hosting the game. Because skill games are not games of chance (or ‘gambling’), King.com is legal and does not require a license in most European territories, the majority of the United States and many other territories.

Launched in August 2003, the King.com site is now available in 9 languages and 7 currencies. We are always adding new territories, so if you would like King.com in your language, let us know about it.
