An Easter Re-launch for Full Tilt?

Easter is this Sunday, and the question of the day is the status of Full Tilt Poker. Will they resurrect or won’t they?

Job positions for multi-lingual customer services staff were recently posted on an Irish employment website and the source was Pocket Kings Ltd. The job posts seek candidates fluent in Italian, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Dutch, Hungarian and Romanian for 2-3 month contracts with the possibility for a future permanent role down the road to work in Dublin, Pocket Kings headquarters. The posts also include the this statement: “this area of the business provides potential for rapid growth within our company, which is the support arm for Full Tilt Poker.”

Putting two and two together leads to a possible re-launch for Full Tilt after becoming a victim of the Black Friday domain seizures. There is no solid evidence that Full Tilt will open its doors any time soon but rumors continue to grow.

All of this may suggest that the French investment vehicle Groupe Bernard Tapie (GBT) has potential plans to purchase the site but again there is no definitive proof and no official word on the presence of a deal with the US Department of Justice. The poker site would likely be re-launched under its original name but rebranding is also a possibility.

Such a deal would require GBT to inherit the debt left behind by Full Tilt Poker but on the other hand the DOJ may repay US customers out of the seized assets. We shall see.
