Michael Josem, a head of Public Relations at PokerStars and Full Tilt, reported in his press release that the date for the merger of the two largest online gambling houses of AMAYA had been appointed by the owners of the company on May 17 or, if necessary, on any other day close to the end of the Spring Championship of Online Poker (May 22, 2016).

According to him, customers of Full Tilt will receive a message from representatives of the support service of this online poker room with the detailed description of all changes that may take place and how they may affect clients. He also emphasized that these changes will depend on a number of factors, including users’ jurisdictions and statuses of their accounts at PokerStars.

The funds available on accounts and bonuses credited in accordance with the loyalty program of Full Tilt to customers who are playing at PokerStars will be automatically transferred after the merger without providing any additional data or extra operations. After the merger the users will just need to log in to take advantage of the united platform, playing various games and larger tournaments.

However, experts believe that the total liquidity of PokerStars will be minimally affected after the merger. Currently, PokerStars is the world's largest online poker room. According to the special report on the online traffic of PokerScout, the moving average of the number of gamblers for 7 days is 13,000 users. To gain a better understanding, the same parameter of its nearest competitor 888poker is less than 1/6 of this quantity, namely 2,100 users. In turn, Full Tilt is currently occupying the 14th leading position in the ranking of online poker rooms, being behind Adjarabet, a Georgian operator, and ahead of Svenska Spel, a state Swedish operator. The moving average of the number of gamblers for 7 days at FullTilt is 575 users.
