With the recent announcement that Full Tilt Poker was finally acquired and may resume operations very soon, you would expect poker players around the world awaiting the moment they can continue playing on the famed poker website. However, things have not turned out that way, as Canadian poker players have moved on, playing at other online poker rooms rather than waiting around for Full Tilt to return.
According to Canadian-Poker, online poker players got tired of waiting around for the return of Full Tilt Poker. Even with millions of dollars invested in Canadian accounts, players from across the country decided to move on to other online poker websites. It seems that 888 and Party Poker are seeing the biggest portion of the Black Friday exodus, as profits at those websites seem to be climbing the most.
Poker Stars is still operational in the North American gambling market, but Canadian poker players have not migrated to the site as was expected. Instead, they are focused on larger brands that consist of other casino offerings other than poker.
Players have also decided to move on, as it is uncertain as to whether or not Full Tilt will resume its services in North America. The company has announced its dedication to refunding players in the area, but Groupe Bernard Tapie – the company which acquired Full Tilt – has expressed plans to stick to the European gambling market.
