An alternative Full Tilt Poker site, hosted in Malta with a license from the LGA, is expected to go live in the next few weeks, a Full Tilt representative has announced.
Full Tilt’s sister site PokerStars debuted PokerStars.EU in February 2012. The Maltese-licensed site, which is otherwise identical to PokerStars.com, is used as a platform for players in certain European countries to eliminate tax liabilities from gambling winnings.
Currently, players from Sweden, Finland, Poland, Slovenia, Romania, the Netherlands and Germany have been moved onto the PokerStars EU platform, and the same can be expected when Full Tilt rolls out its equivalent offering.
Other than the license, the player experience is unchanged; the player pool, games and features available are identical.
