Full Tilt Poker Licence Application Underway
The Alderney Gambling Control Commission has confirmed that a public hearing will be held next month to discuss an application made by the Full Tilt Poker company for a new licence.
Ornic Limited, a Full Tilt subsidiary, has applied for the licence, and the AGCC will be running a hearing to allow for oral submissions on Thursday, May 3rd at the Braye Beach Hotel in Alderney. The hearing will take place at 2PM, and most analysts expect that it will go smoothly.
The licence, if it is approved, would be the first step towards Full Tilt returning to the online poker scene. The previous licence, held by Ornic, was not revoked, only suspended, as the group were not actively trading at the time that the events of Black Friday took place. This is positive, and it is likely that the company will get their licence reinstated. This, combined with the fact that Groupe Bernard Tapie are so close to signing a deal with the DoJ, is good news for online poker fans and people who were affected by the events of Black Friday last year. Many players are still owed money by the site, so any progress towards a return can only be a good thing.
