Through one of its subsidiaries, Orinic Limited, Full Tilt Poker has applied for a new internet gaming license with the Alderney Gaming Control Commission, signaling a intended and potential re-launch of the site.
Orinic Limited has applied for a Category 2 online gambling license on March 23 with regulators from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, a license class that permits the license-holder to offer full online gaming services.
The company held only a Category 1 license previously which doesn’t permit handling of gaming funds but that license was suspended last July following a hearing between FTP and AGCC.
Another positive sign of the re-launch is that there has been a series of hiring ads no recruitment websites where Pocket Kings, Full Tilt’s parent company has posted a number of positions. The Dublin-based company is seeking employees for urgent short term positions with the possibility of permanent contracts.
Laurent Tapie, in charge of the acquisition negotiations on behalf of his father’s company Groupe Bernard Tapie, is rumoured to have relocated to Dublin, Ireland to oversee a re-launch of Full Tilt Poker himself.
