Just hours ago PokerStars came with a notable press release. The report stated that Full Tilt will annex with PokerStars this spring. Amaya Gaming Group (AGG), PokerStars and Full Tilt's parent company, said that the Full Tilt brand will keep existing, but players will soon be able to have one single account compatible with both platforms.
Rafi Ashkenazi, CEO of the Rational Group, is very enthusiastic: “Players will benefit from a larger pool of players offering greater game choice, bigger prize pools. It will also make us more nimble as we can focus our technological innovation on one platform, rather than two, so we will be able to innovate more quickly and enter newly-regulating and existing markets swiftly.”
After the merge every player will have one universal account. Amaya gave details bout the account merging.
All Full Tilt players will be contacted directly and will be provided with a link to full and comprehensive information on how these changes will affect them. Once the migration has taken place, players will have one single account that can be used to play on the shared platform through either the PokerStars or Full Tilt branded software. The migration process will automatically identify whether players have an existing PokerStars account and combine the accounts if needed; for those that do, their PokerStars username will take precedence. If a player does not have a PokerStars account they’ll be given the option to keep their screen name—if it’s available—or create a new one.
All the ins and outs considering the merging can be found on the Full Tilt FAQ page.
