PokerStars is retiring Entire Tilt Poker but will maintain it for itself.
Amaya Gaming, PokerStars’ dad or mum corporation, announced its choice to merge Entire Tilt Poker gamers onto the PokerStars system before this 7 days, to raise liquidity, streamline enhancement and increase the overall participant experience.
The announcement was not a big surprise as Entire Tilt, which used to be runner-up powering PokerStars in on the net poker liquidity, has sagged to 11th on PokerScout.com’s targeted traffic report.
Entire Tilt became a weakness for Amaya and the operator had to discover a way to minimize it free.
But the news left numerous speculating as to what Amaya would do with the redundant system at the time the migration was total sometime this spring.
So here’s what Amaya has in mind.
After the merger, Entire Tilt application will be officially retired and will function as a “skin” on the PokerStars network, documented Poker Field Professional. Meaning, it would keep its branding and structure but the application will be the similar as PokerStars.
Entire Tilt will also share PokerStars’ rake, VIP packages, and application features and the gamers will have a unified account that can be used to log in to both equally on the net poker rooms.
Authentic money and participate in chips games will share liquidity with PokerStars’ world on the net poker network.
Amaya is also preparing to maintain the Entire Tilt Online Poker Sequence but it will only be available to gamers on the Entire Tilt skin. The 29th FTOPS will be held on February 29 and it will be the previous time that the gamers will use Entire Tilt’s application.
Branding of the fast-fold Hurry Poker will also continue to be on Entire Tilt, but will share participant pools with Zoom though the Entire Tilt avatars will go on to be an exclusive characteristic on the FTP brand name but will be noticeable on the PokerStars client.
Entire Tilt’s Controlling Director Dominic Mansour will continue to be with the corporation to supervise the changeover and will assume a new job in the foreseeable future. The bulk of personnel will be moved to other roles in IT division.
And for its rival firms thinking of acquiring the system, sorry, but Amaya confirmed that it is not for sale.
