Full Tilt Jobs in Dublin Look Safe

Good news for the employees at Full Tilt Poker’s office in Dublin has come with the suggestion that their jobs will be safe after all.

It has been suggested that PokerStars bosses have come up with a plan to operate out of the Irish office once they take over Full Tilt, securing the jobs for the 200 staff currently employed there. Following newspaper reports to this effect the confirmation came in a statement from Eric Hollreiser, who is the Head of Corporate Communications at PokerStars.

He confirmed that they “will continue to operate” the betting brand out of Dublin and even expects to see growth there in the “near to medium term”. No details of the plans to re-build the stricken Full Tilt Poker brand were given but Hollreiser confirmed that it would be run as a distinct brand from PokerStars. He said that they are keen to get the site up and running again and “rebuilding Full Tilt’s reputation”. The new site will include some innovations and it will be interesting to see how it works out.

Nursing a $7 Million Loss

However, one player who is likely to still be ruing the Full Tilt collapse is Daniel Cates, who is known as Jungleman 12. Cates said that around 80% of the money he plays with was in the Full Tilt system when it crashed on the 15th of April of last year. This means that he has about $7 million tied up with the failed company.

He said that he had been winning a good deal of money on the site’s high stakes tables when the disaster struck. Players such as Cates are still waiting to hear how much of their money they will get back following the deal struck between PokerStars and the US Justice Department.
