Wednesday November 7,2012 : FULL TILT POKER BACK ON THE MENU
Good player turn-out at re-launch
Isle-of-Man registered Full Tilt Poker opened its real-money-play virtual doors today at 12 noon GMT allowing players access to the cumulative $184 million in their accounts, with the exception of players from the United States, France Italy, Spain, Denmark, Estonia and Belgium.
Full Tilt Poker's enforced shut-down and the inability to retrieve their funds doesn't seem to have deterred players as the site registered 22 200 players an hour and a half after launch.
"Full Tilt Poker is back and better than ever," said Sarne Lightman, head of marketing for Full Tilt Poker. "We are bringing back to the players everything they loved about the site and we invite them to help us celebrate by joining our ‘Deal Me In' launch promotions."
Brand ambassador and poker pro Gus Hansen added: "The return of Full Tilt Poker fills a hole in the community that's been felt by millions of players."
