Full Tilt Poker was previously one of the most-visited online poke sites by New Zealand poker fans. Players across the country are eagerly awaiting the site’s return on November 6, 2012, and the operator is taking big steps to ensuring that it is a monumental event. In addition to re-hiring much of its old staff, Full Tilt is enlisting in the help of some poker pros that were previously associated with the brand – with Gus Hansen returning as brand ambassador.
Gus was previously a member of Team Full Tilt with other big names like Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey. He is now the first pro to reignite his relationship with the brand, and he will be the new face of the company when Full Tilt Poker returns to the online gambling scene.
“I’m very excited to represent the industry’s most authentic poker brand,” Hansen says in a recent statement.
This time around, Full Tilt Poker plans on doing everything by the book. The company has enlisted in the help of a new management team, which will ensure that the brand complies with gaming laws in all jurisdictions. So, players from across New Zealand and around the world never have to worry about the site going belly up again.
