Amaya Gaming Group Inc.Agreed to Acquire Rational Group, Owner of PokerStars and Full TiltPoker, for $4.9 Billion.Acquisition Creates World's Largest Publicly-Traded Online Gaming Company Statement from Steve Day, Pokerstars : The short version is that there will be no significant impact on the player experience. We still plan to serve all current markets, including Canada, and to work to grow the game of poker globally. We are also excited about the potential to be licensed in New Jersey and then begin serving players there quickly thereafter. I do not have a timeline to share, but can say that we believe that this purchase has a significant positive impact. PokerStars and Full Tilt customer funds will continue to be held in segregated accounts, separate from operational funds, so you will know that your money is safe with us. The playing experience on both sites remains the same as it was yesterday. It is business as usual here at the Isle of Man office and at our other offices in Dublin, London, Paris, Malta, Costa Rica, and Sydney.
