According to a report from iGaming Post, PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) have reached an agreement on paying back Full Tilt Poker players and the official repayment plan might be presented already at the end of this month.
Once the announcement has been made and the U.S. Department of Justice has approved it, both Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars should be able to apply for licenses within the U.S., when and if online poker is regulated in the future.
PokerStars to buy Full Tilt Poker?
The rumor that PokerStars will buy Full Tilt Poker has still not been confirmed by neither site, however, there has been a lot of talk on the matter. Some people say that PokerStars would make a great move by buying Full Tilt Poker because they would have almost total control over the poker market. Others think that PokerStars don't need Full Tilt Poker since many of their non-US players already are playing with them today. Besides that, many think that Full Tilt Poker's bad reputation (after Black Friday) would be too hard to wash off.
