AGCC to Hold Public Hearing for Full Tilt License Application

The Alderney Gaming Control Commission will hold a hearing to review the application of Orinic Limited, a Full Tilt subsidiary that escaped license revocation last year.

The hearing will take place on May 3, 2012—two weeks from today—at the Braye Beach Hotel, Alderney. The meeting will be open to the public, and oral representations may be made.

Orinic Limited applied for a category 2 license to offer online gambling with the AGCC last month.

The company was one of a string of entities recognized together as Full Tilt Poker. Following the closure of the poker room and a week-long hearing in July 2011 by the AGCC, all but one license application was permanently revoked.

Orinic, however, only received a six month suspension. This decision was based on the fact that the company was not currently trading at the time Full Tilt went offline.

There was more news of progress this week when it emerged that Laurent Tapie and a fellow ISPT founder were recently named directors of a new company in Ireland that, for a brief period, was named New Full Tilt Limited.
