Full Tilt to Offer Casino Games

Full Tilt to Offer Casino Games

Full Tilt Poker intends to offer casino games alongside its popular poker product.    

The Rational Group, owner of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, confirmed that Full Tilt will add casino games to its platform in the near future, differentiating it from its sister site, which will remain a poker-only provider.

“The Rational Group intends to expand our product offering to include casino-style games on Full Tilt Poker,” the company said in a statement.

“While adding new games, we remain committed to building our leadership in poker with PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker and continuing to deliver the highest quality poker experience to players.”

Full Tilt is reportedly in the initial stages of a rebranding and expansion. It has been speculated that the site might become Full Tilt Gaming, where blackjack, roulette and perhaps slots will be added to the product line alongside poker.

Full Tilt and PokerStars were two of the top brands to offer online poker in the U.S., as well as internationally. Both sites were shut down in the U.S. by the Department of Justice in 2011 under a crackdown on online gaming. PokerStars and Full Tilt came under the Rational Group umbrella as part of a settlement with the DOJ.

Recently, PokerStars announced a partnership with Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, as New Jersey rapidly moves to offer a full range of online casino games in the fall. Resorts is the only Atlantic City casino that partnered with a site without a known casino software partner. With the new offering, the Rational Group may have the software it needs to be competitive in New Jersey and throughout the country.

What role Full Tilt will play in the Resorts partnership is unknown. The site remains a popular poker brand throughout Europe, but its parent company has faced opposition as it vies for a coveted New Jersey casino license.
