The latest news involving the acquisition of Full Tilt Poker by Pokerstars reported that the acquisition has saved 200 jobs at the Dublin HQ of the beleaguered company.
This was confirmed by the head of corporate communications for PokerStars, Eric Hollreiser, who said that his company intends to keep operating Full Tilt Poker from the current site in the Cherrywood suburb.
“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,” he said, adding that FTP will be a separate entity, and that soon, a number of positions will be opened in software engineering, marketing, and backroom support sections.
Regarding rebuilding of the Full Tilt brand, he stated: “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.”
