Small Signs Give Full Tilt Players Hope

While players still wait for any sign of good news from Full Tilt Poker, a couple of low-profile moves could signal that the poker site is preparing for a relaunch or other major move behind the scenes.

The online poker community first noticed that something might be up at Full Tilt Poker when a few Irish players noticed an unusual listing on a job recruitment site in Ireland. The job postings from Pocket Kings – the parent company that ran the Full Tilt Poker site – sought experienced customer service personnel for 2-3 month contract jobs. The positions were also said to have the potential to become full time.

If that weren’t enough to suggest that something was coming from Full Tilt soon, there was also movement on the licensing front. Orinic Limited, a company formed in Alderney specifically for the purposes of being licensed there and then marketing Full Tilt Poker to Swiss players, applied for a gaming license from the AGCC. Unlike several of FTP’s companies and license holders, Orinic did not have its licenses revoked, but rather saw their licenses put on suspension, and was asked to fulfill a number of “stringent conditions” before the company could resume operations.

While these moves may offer a glimmer of hope for Full Tilt Poker’s former players, it is difficult to say exactly what they signal. Despite rumors that a deal between FTP, Groupe Bernard Tapie, and the US Department of Justice could be imminent, none of the parties involved have confirmed this, and it is unclear what the timeline would be for any such arrangement. No timeline for the repayment of players – either internationally or in the United States – has been announced.
