Full Tilt has joined the Danish iGaming market after successfully securing a license to operate in the country from the Danish Gambling Authority.
Full Tilt has been successful in their attempt to secure the appropriate licensing to offer their product to the Danish market.
Fulltilt.dk will provide Danish iGaming enthusiasts access to their full suite of online poker & casino games. They join a tough environment with their sister company PokerStars, jostling for position with the likes of partypoker, Unibet and Betfair.
It’s the fourth license that Full Tilt has managed to bag, since the troubled outfit launched under new leadership back in 2012 (UK, Isle of Man & Malta are the other three). Full Tilt Managing Director, Dominic Mansour, is delighted with the news.
“We are excited that Danish players are now able to play both casino and poker games on Full Tilt. Danish players are able to create their stories on Full Tilt and compete against players from around the world.”
PokerStars has been operating successfully in the Danish market since Jan 2012, and what a market it is. In March, the Danish Gambling Regulator, Spillemyndigheden, released financials that showed the Danish online gambling market had grown by 20%, last year. 29 operators live in the online casino world, 15 have sports betting licenses, and many more operate online poker sites.
In 2014, Full Tilt Poker decided to introduce online casino games to their customers. It was the first time that any of Rational Group’s toys had moved beyond online poker. It was later decided to remove the word ‘poker’ from the Full Tilt brand, and ambassadors Gus Hansen, and Viktor Blom were released from their contract.
Since those heady days, ownership of Full Tilt has passed to Amaya Gaming Inc. who has made it very clear that their future plans are to incorporate online poker, online casino, and online sports betting under one entity, and more importantly, one wallet.
