Despite no recent news on the subject of when Full Tilt Poker will reopen or when Pocket Kings Ltd intend on paying out the millions that are owed to their former loyal customers, there is some pretty good news in that Full Tilt Poker (Pocket Kings Ltd) is hiring again, they are currently looking to recruit multilingual service reps, service supervisors and service team leaders.
The current ads are online at jobs.ie posted by Pocket Kings Ltd located in Cherrywood, Dublin, Ireland.
The other bit of positive news is that Orinic Limited has applied for an AGCC category 2 license, a category 2 license permits full online gambling licensed by the AGCC.
Orinic Limited is a known subsidiary Full Tilt Poker and the only subsidiary not to have had its former category 1 license completely revoked although it was previously suspended for 6 months when FullTilt found themselves in trouble after black Friday and the subsequent money laundering charges that followed shortly thereafter, the status of the AGCC license submission is pending a 14 day objectionary period.
Based on that bit of news I think one can safely say that we can expect Full Tilt Poker to open soon, just how soon remains to be seen but I would imagine a press release should be released within a month or so.
Let’s all hope that this bit of encouraging Full Tilt Poker news will start the ball rolling and we that see all outstanding payments made worldwide and the eventual restoration of Full Tilt poker as a major competitor in the online poker world, after all one has to admit that PokerStars being so alone at the top without any major competition isn’t good for online poker in general.
The big question is, when Full Tilt Poker do finally open and get licensed again then pay out all their former players including all the players in the USA how trustworthy will they be seen by the online poker community and poker players in general.
One could only imagine the huge PR campaign that will need to be launched in order to rectify their wrong doings of the past and restore faith to potential players without the US market which made up a large percentage of their previous market share.
I guess the best method to get players back would be via massive sign up bonuses and player incentives along with marketing campaigns on TV and in just about every form of media available.
