The Canadian giant released a statement confirming the platform migration.

Canada.- Amaya will merge PokerStars and Full Tilt platforms in a matter of months. The gaming and online gaming company explained that the platform migration would enable its development and technology teams to focus on one platform instead of two.

Full Tilt Casino will be featuring the same automated account change-over process, but web casino, video poker, baccarat and double-ball roulette will be available at a later date.

Full Tilt keeps its original brand with the continuation of player avatars and rewards including its ‘The Deal’ that features a jackpot that regularly surpasses US$100,000, whilst its users will have access to the PokerStars VIP Club rewards programme.

“Players will benefit from a larger pool of players offering greater game choice, bigger prize pools,” saidRafi Ashkenazi, chief executive of Rational Group, the Amaya-owned operator for both brands. “It will also make us more nimble as we can focus our technological innovation on one platform, rather than two, so we will be able to innovate more quickly and enter newly-regulating and existing markets swiftly,” he added.
