After purchasing Full Tilt Poker in-part to settle the civil suit the U.S. Department of Justice filed against PokerStars, the online poker giant is scheduled to re-open its former rival, Full Tilt Poker, on November 6, 2012.
Now owned by PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker is adequately funded to give poker players around the world access to all of the money they had in their accounts on Black Friday, the day the Department of Justice forced both websites to close their doors to American players, when the poker room is re-launched in a few days.
Formerly known for its cutting-edge software and mass appeal, Full Tilt Poker intends to regain the trust of poker players everywhere by offering a slew of enticing promotions when the site is live again. For instance, every player who has an account with Full Tilt will receive a $200 Deal Me In bonus and account holders will be eligible to play for their share of $250,000 in various freerolls.
Because Full Tilt Poker is now owned by PokerStars, players who have accounts with both poker rooms will be able to transfer funds between the accounts they have with each site. In addition to this unique feature, players can rest-assured that their funds will always be available to them unlike in days past because PokerStars’ business practices dictate that player funds and company funds be segregated – a big reason why Pokerstars was able to reimburse American players for the money they had in their accounts within a month of the site being seized by the Department of Justice while Full Tilt lacked the money necessary to pay its players as an independent entity.
Players will also recognize some familiar faces when they return to Full Tilt Poker. Professional players, Tom Dwan, Viktor “isildur1” Blom and Gus Hansen have signed on to represent the poker room.
