Full Tilt has now fully migrated on to the PokerStars platform. Ever since Rational Group (which owns both sites) was acquired by Amaya Gaming, there has been talk of merging the two sites. Now, all Full Tilt poker players will be playing solely on PokerStars platform.
All Full Tilt players will be required to install an update. Once they are logged in, they will be taken to a lobby that features all PokerStars games. For example, Full Tilt’s Rush Poker is still available – but, it is simply a re-skinned version of PokerStar’s Zoom poker.
The software will run PokerStars, but the games will look like Full Tilt tables. Players will have access to the same avatars and customisation options (such as card decks, background and table); so it will almost feel like they are still playing at Full Tilt.
One of the main benefits of the migration is that users will now have access to a larger pool of players. So, they will have a wider range when it comes to choosing games, and they will benefit from bigger prize pools for tournaments.
Rational Group is also pleased with the migration. The company will now be able to focus on updating and innovating just one platform, so there will be great new things to come from PokerStars in the future. Rational Group CEO Rafi Ashkenazi says:
“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.”
We have seen PokerStars launch pokies, casino games and even a sportsbook. So, now that the migration is complete, players can look forward to even more interesting new offerings.
If you’re signed up to Full Tilt, there is no need to open a new account. Simply sign in, and you will be able to play on PokerStars as a Full Tilt player. You bank balance should be transferred as well.
