Beleaguered online poker site Full Tilt Poker may be experienced a rebirth, as the company has been registered in Ireland as New Full Tilt Limited with starting capital of €1 million.
The starting capital has been furnished by the Groupe Bernard Tapie, the French investment firm that has been working to acquire Full Tilt Poker since the poker site's legal troubles began last year. The company's Directors are listed as Laurent Tapie and International Stadiums Poker Tour Director Jerémy Masquelier.
The company was incorporated on February 14th, with the two Directors appointed last month.
The company's description is "a software consultancy and supply firm", which carries a Dublin address with it.
Recently, GBT has been working with regulators in Alderney to have Full Tilt's gaming license reinstated. Rumors have been working their way around that the company is applying for a gaming license in Malta as well, and is hiring employees in Ireland.
Earlier in the week poker players also reported activity on Full Tilt Poker's website in what appears to be software testing for a new launch.
