PokerStars Takeover of Full Tilt Saves 200 Jobs
Company Confirms Full Tilt Will Continue To Operate From Dublin
Full Tilt Poker will continue to operate out of Dublin when it is relaunched says PokerStars head of corporate communications Eric Hollreiser.
The company also expects to expand beyond its current 200 jobs according to the Irish Examiner.
“When we do take over Full Tilt we will continue to operate it out of Dublin. In the near to medium term we expect there to be growth in the Dublin office,” Hollreiser told the newspaper.
“It’s too early to begin disclosing many details about our strategic plans for Full Tilt, but our first order of business is to re-open the site, pay back all of the players and begin rebuilding Full Tilt’s reputation.
“Going forward, we will operate Full Tilt as a separate brand, giving players another leading and trusted platform to enjoy the game. The re-launched Full Tilt site will bring back the innovative features, the authentic poker and the cutting-edge software that made it so popular with millions of players worldwide."
Full Tilt Poker once employed up to 700 people at its Cherrywood offices in south Dublin but the majority have been laid off or left in the wake of Black Friday.
