Full Tilt Poker has been granted a license by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission (GSC), allowing the online poker site to provide online poker services from the Isle of Man.
The Rational Group, which operates PokerStars and acquired the assets of Full Tilt Poker in August, will re-launch Full Tilt Poker on Nov. 6 and repay its non-U.S. customers $184 million when it opens for business.
According to a press release from the Rational Group, Full Tilt Poker was granted the Isle of Man license following “thorough scrutiny of the proposed operations by the Gambling Supervision Commission.”
The GSC says it was also was extremely interested in reviewing the senior management structure that will oversee Full Tilt Poker’s operations.
Full Tilt Poker was previously regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, which stripped the online poker site of its operating license on June 29, 2011.
Last month, around 30 tons of Full Tilt Poker hardware was transported by military plane from Dublin to PokerStars’ headquarters on the Isle of Man.
While Full Tilt’s headquarters will remain in Dublin, its servers must be located in the Isle of Man in accordance with Isle of Man regulations.
