The Full Tilt subsidiary, possessed a license from the AGCC but unlike Full Tilt’s other company whose license was completely revoked, Orinic’s license received only a suspension amidst the Full Tilt controversy because it had not begun trading. The company submitted an application for a Category 2 license to operate gambling last month.
For players this could be a further sign of a coming resurrection of the site and possible return of lost funds. Other recent signs included an ad for hiring of new staff in Dublin and formation of companies in Ireland and Malta using the Full Tilt Poker brand.
Groupe Bernard Tapie are apparently in final stages of closing the takeover deal with shareholders and the Department of Justice.
Here is what the AGCC press release read:
“In the matter of an application by Orinic Limited for a Category 2 eGambling licence TAKE NOTICE that the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, pursuant to Section 4 of the Alderney eGambling Ordinance, 2009 and Regulation 23 of the Alderney eGambling Regulations, 2009, will hold a public hearing at which oral representations may be made. This hearing will take place at 2.00pm on Thursday 3rd May, 2012 at the Braye Beach Hotel, Alderney.”
