Irish bookmaker Paddy Power has never shied away from controversial betting markets, and today is no different. They have opened up a market on whether online poker players will be able to play real money poker again on Full Tilt Poker on July 27.
On July 26, there will be a public hearing with Full Tilt regulator, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, in London. Today is also a key date in the saga, as it is rumoured that a potential European investor will be announced for the troubled site by the end of the day.
The Paddy Power market is currently priced up as follows:
|9/2 – Players will be playing real money poker on Full Tilt July 27|
|1/8 – Players will not be playing real money poker on Full Tilt on July 27|
“Whether Full Tilt Poker is opened or closed on the 27th, players will have good reason to be playing poker on paddypowerpoker.com,” said communications spokesman Paddy Power. “Either way it’s a no lose situation for our punters and poker players as they get paid one way or the other regardless of the outcome.”
This is not the first promotion Paddy Power has unveiled at the expense of Full Tilt Poker, having recently announced a new Green Card loyalty bonus for former Full Tilt Poker Black Card holders.
