Full Tilt Granted Isle of Man Gaming License and Email Sent to Players for Upcoming Relaunch


Full Tilt Poker has been granted a remote gaming license by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission, the same organization that licenses the gaming operations of PokerStars.

The company also emailed its non-US player database this weekend to outline how the site’s relaunch would impact players who held accounts with Full Tilt prior to the site’s closure last year.

The email stated that players will have complete access, without restriction, to their accounts including their full funds balance come November 6 when the site goes live for the first time under the new ownership of PokerStars. A clock has been added to the website to countdown the days to the grand re-opening.

“This means you’ll soon be able to return to the Full Tilt Poker games and tournaments that you’ve known and loved for years, secure in the knowledge that your experience is now backed by the same account security and game integrity that millions of PokerStars players have trusted for more than 10 years.”

“Full Tilt Poker now operates under a license in Isle of Man, which is among the most trusted and rigorous e-gaming regulatory jurisdictions in the world. The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission maintains vigilant standards for e-gaming, particularly the safeguarding of player funds.”

“Since August, we’ve been carefully reviewing all Full Tilt player accounts in preparation for re-opening. In the coming weeks we will be completing the restoration of all non-US player accounts including yours, in preparation for re-launch day.”

Other common questions that old and new players may have are being address on the site.

The site will seek a license to operate Full Tilt Poker in France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Belgium and Estonia but in the meantime Full Tilt Poker players in these countries will be able to play at PokerStars.

Full Tilt will also re-introduce their popular Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) which will return in December (2-16). In the FTOPS XIX main event which took place in February 2011, a record setting field of 14,479 entries and American Blair “blur5f6” Hinkle won a record $1,162,950 which he never got to see because it preceded the Black Friday closures. Unlike everybody else, like other Americans, he will have to go through the US government for any hopes of seeing his prize money.
