I'm actually a bit worried about what it'll mean for Australian customers: online sports betting is 100% legal here (and incredibly lucrative for operators) but poker isn't.
While Full Tilt and Stars have been poker-only they've always served Australians because they're based overseas and even though it's technically
illegal for them to provide the service to us, they haven't based servers or staff here and nobody's pursued it AFAIK.
If Full Tilt wants to start offering sports betting too though, I'm wondering if they'll have to drop poker. Other companies that offer both (Betfair is one of the biggest examples) don't allow Australians to play poker because they'd rather give us sports betting instead.
Also, I'm wondering how far away the name change is going to be: obviously they're not just a poker site
any more. Do they drop the "poker" and just become "Full Tilt" or do they rebrand entirely?
