Full Tilt Applies for New License, Seeks Employees

Full Tilt Applies for New License, Seeks Employees | This Week in Gambling - Poker News | Scoop.it
A whole new round of speculation about the future of Full Tilt Poker is on the horizon following a wave of new information from its subsidiaries.


In addition to applying for a full license with the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, the company is seeking to hire dozens of short term employees to fill a number of different positions.As reported by pokerfuse, Full Tilt is applying to expand the one license it held with the AGCC that was not revoked during hearings in July 2011. The license is held by Full Tilt subsidiary Orinic Limited and is currently classified as a “Category 1″ license, one that does not allow them to hold gaming funds. While Orinic avoided revocation of their license, they have only recently completed a six-month suspension of said license.


In an application filed March 23, Orinic is seeking a “Category 2″ license with the AGCC that will allow the company to offer full scale online gaming services. There is currently a 14-day window in which those opposing the licensing of the company may submit a written objection with an explanation as to why they feel the company should not be licensed.

With the process of applying for a new license in progress, another of Full Tilt’s subsidiaries is currently in the process of hiring a number of new employees. Pocket Kings Ltd, perhaps the most well known of the Full Tilt subsidiaries, is hiring for various positions related to customer service and IT on a temporary basis.


Among the jobs listed is a posting for “Localization Specialists” who are multi-lingual and have experience in translating marketing materials. Pocket Kings is looking for employees who speak German, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, French, Hungarian, Romanian, Polish, Swedish, Danish, and Czech, and are clearly looking to expand quickly back into many of the markets in which Full Tilt was entrenched in the past. Each contract is for 2-3 months with the potential of a more permanent position.


The rest of the new jobs with Pocket Kings are specific customer service positions. They are seeking customer service reps in several different languages, as well as team leaders, supervisors, and quality agents in order to fully staff that office.


There has been no comment as of yet from Bernard Tapie on the current status of Full Tilt.
