Full Tilt Poker To Have Hearing Over License

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission has announced that it will hold a public hearing in May to debate the merits of re-awarding a gaming license to Full Tilt Poker.

Full Tilt subsidiary company Orinic Limited has applied for a new license through the AGCC. Several signs are indicating that the troubled poker firm are reorganizing under French investment firm Groupe Bernard Tapie. Recently the company registered a business presence in Ireland and applied for a gaming license in Malta. Activity has also been detected on the company's website, which went dormant after the events of Black Friday last year.

Currently Orinic Limited has a license through the AGCC which is suspended. The company is apparently trying to have that license replaced with a Category 2 eGaming license.

Former Full Tilt players with balances still owed by the company are awaiting a deal with the U.S. Department of Justice to get the monies owed to them.
