Full Tilt re-launch countdown continues
Monday, 29 October 2012
Next week is the week when player balances are restored and the poker playing community gets to reintegrate themselves into the Full Tilt matrix.
Having been dormant since the DOJ seized the site last year, players will now be able to get back onto the site later this week to pick up where they left off. Despite news that the old rakeback system is being replaced with a new VIP scheme, much of the community is looking forward to the full restart of the site which will take place on November 6th.
For those with considerable bankrolls locked on the site the 6th can’t come soon enough, but there has been some relief for those itching to indulge in the site’s software as the owners have announced play money games will be available this week.
In addition to this, French players will be able to with Full Tilt balances via PokerStars client from November 2nd according to the country’s regulator, ARJEL.
Rest of the world players will have to wait until the site re-launches for real money games before they can withdraw their balances.
For those who are also concerned about the status of their player points and bonuses, Full Tilt has stated they will be sending out an email this week with details on how their previous achievements will be handled.
For the most part, the company has stated that many of the elements will remain intact. Players in countries where Full Tilt can’t be accessed will have their bonuses transferred to the equivalent on PokerStars; moreover, high volume players will receive VIP status boosts on PokerStars.
