One affiliate site is reporting than if Full Tilt were reinstated then one European country’s citizens would flock back to the site. Pokerstrategy.com is reporting that almost three quarters of German players would return to the site and not cash out their money straight away. The survey of around 1,215 players saw that 27% would immediately cash out 100% of their balance whereas another 21% would cash out some money and return to get the rest later.
It’s little wonder that this story has surfaced as convenience-wise it will mean not having to move money around. The reason it’s slightly worrying is that if they leave money in their accounts it’s not certain the company will be there forever. The site had its license revoked last month by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. In the wake of Black Friday the AGCC revealed that Full Tilt had not stuck to its stringent rules.
Elsewhere in the world of online poker, Blanca Games is reportedly in discussions to renew its license with the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. According to eGaming Review, the owner of the Cereus Poker Network is going every step to make sure that they are sticking to the rules. A spokesperson for the company said, “It is our current intention to seek continued licensing by the Commission, and we are presently in discussion with them on continuance of our Client Provider Authorization.”
Cereus is the network that hosted Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet, two of the sites that were key during the Black Friday indictments.
