Full Tilt to merge with PokerStars next week

12 May 2016

The final days for Full Tilt poker are officially upon us.

After announcing back in February that Full Tilt would be "pooled together" with fellow Amaya Gaming online brand PokerStars.com into one product, the company announced last week that May 17 will be the official date.

The Full Tilt communications team stated that Full Tilt players would be e-mailed directly regarding personal information on how the merge will affect them specifically, "which depends on a variety of factors, including their jurisdiction and the status of their PokerStars account (if any)."

The statement went on to say that, "in many cases, Full Tilt players who already hold a PokerStars account will not need to update any information or transfer their account assets (loyalty points, cash balances, etc.), which will be transferred automatically to their PokerStars account and they can simply log in to their PokerStars account and enjoy all the great benefits on offer, including even more game choices and bigger tournaments."

When the original announcement was made in February, Amaya explained that the platform migration would allow the company's "development and technology teams to focus on improving one market-leading platform rather than two, leading to a better gaming experience for all."

"Players will benefit from a larger pool of players offering greater game choice, bigger prize pools," said Rafi Ashkenazi, Chief Executive Officer of Rational Group. "It will also make us more nimble as we can focus our technological innovation on one platform, rather than two, so we will be able to innovate more quickly and enter newly regulating and existing markets swiftly."
