Full Tilt Poker will not seek an Italian online gaming licenses and is effectively pulling out of the Italian market.
The site’s new owners Amaya Gaming have reportedly decided not to seek an online license in Italy for several reasons including the declining online gambling market in the country.
Italian news agency Agimeg, reported that the company will not enter Italy’s regulated online poker market, even though the site’s former owners—The Rational Group—applied for a license.
The company instead plans to focus on its PokerStars site in Italy, which is an industry leader in Italy. The company also plans to add casino games to the PokerStars site.
