The report by the firm showed a cargo aircraft delivering the equipment and featured PokerStars Communications Chief Eric Hollreiser commenting on his company's absorption of Full Tilt.

Speaking to the station Hollreiser said of its deal to acquire Full Tilt Poker: "It was a great resolution for us. We were able to acquire the assets of Full Tilt Poker, which was one of our largest competitors, so we’ll be able to grow as a result.

"In addition to the assets, we've taken on a couple hundred staff so we’re growing, Full Tilt Poker is growing, we think the poker community is certainly embracing it and the business will come with that as well."

Hollreiser went on to confirm that PokerStars is determined to re-launch Full Tilt Poker in November and to pay all non-US players within the 90 day period of the deal officially closing.

"It is a large task but I’m confident we can do it so by the 6th (November) the site will be open, players will be playing again and able to access their funds," Hollreiser said.
