Sports Betting Coming to Full Tilt Poker
The parent company of Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars is hoping to enter into the world of sports betting.Full Tilt Poker was recently expanded to include roulette, blackjack and other casino games and now the Rational Group is planning on adding a sportsbook to the site.
When this is done it will make Full Tilt Poker the first Rational owned site to offer a complete range of gambling options.
A spokesperson for the Rational Group said that the company is “exploring opportunities to enter global sports betting markets to enhance our online gaming offerings.”
At present Rational is talking to potential suppliers and hoping to launch in 2015. The company is hoping that the addition of a sportsbook will help restore Full Tilt poker to its pre-Black Friday status when it was ranked as the no. 2 global online poker site. The Rational Group acquired the site in 2012 as part of the settlement of the civil charges filed against Rational by the US Department of Justice.
