10/12/2012 : RESURRECTED FULL TILT CONTACTS PLAYERS (Update)
November 6 launch confirmed, and non-US players brought up to speed on arrangements
Pokerstars appears to be at full steam ahead on its plans to resurrect the recently acquired Full Tilt Poker brand, contacting non-US players this week to bring them up to speed on the arrangements for the November 6 re-launch.
The email advises players that the Rational Group, which owns and operates Pokerstars, has appointed new senior management to re-open and operate the site as a separate brand to Pokerstars, providing the online poker community with another high-quality poker platform.
"Following re-launch, you will have complete access to your account – including your full balance – and you can once again play on the innovative online poker platform that made Full Tilt Poker home to serious online poker players," the email advises.
"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."
The email informs players that FTP will now operate under an Isle of Man licence "….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."
Summarising what the re-launch means for non-US players, the email notes:
* Normal access to your Full Tilt Poker player account with your current password
* Renewed access to all Full Tilt Poker real and play-money games
* Access to your total balance without restriction, including withdrawals
The communication ends with an invitation for players to ask questions or make suggestions via a special feedback page.
