The countdown to the final days of Full Tilt poker has started, as the officials have decided to shut it down and merge it with PokerStars. This is something that was announced back in February when it was decided for Full Tilt to be pooled together with its sister brand PokerStars forming one single gambling product. May 17 has been the day that this was officiated, the day when Full Tilt died.
Now what remains is the process of merging the Full Tilt accounts with PokerStars. Those players that already have a PokerStars account will not be affected from this merging. Everything they have on Full Tilt will be transferred to their PokerStars accounts. They can simply log in to their PokerStars account using the same login details they used before. At PokerStars they will have much bigger benefits without a doubt, including much bigger tournaments.
When Amaya the company behind PokerStars announced this back in February, they explained that it will be beneficial for the company and that way they will be able to focus on improving the platform already in place at PokerStars. Instead of focusing on two, now one leading and better platform will be developed.
Nevertheless, this will all be for the greater good of the players. PokerStars is known for the bigger prize pools, greater game choice, and they will be able to benefit from a technologically improved platform.
