Full Tilt Poker has recently launched a .EU branded site to offer it’s services to European markets that were unable to take full advantage of the .com site.
The new site has been licensed by the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Commission (MLGA), and because Malts is part of the European union, this has opened up 9 European Markets, including Finland, Germany, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, and Sweden.
The players on the new EU site will have access to the same games, the same tournament, all against the same players as those on the main site, and they also get access to the Edge Reward program, and the other promotions available on the site.
Michael Holmberg, General Manager of Full Tilt poker Brand, the Rational Group Malta said “Playing under a Maltese license has many advantages for players in various European countries, particularly those markets where playing on a EU platform means that player winnings are tax-free”
The Tax Free aspect of the Maltese regulated site is bound to please players from countries inside the EU that tax poker winnings, such as Finland, Romania and Sweden. With the way the European Union regulates the tax laws, players from these countries can take advantage of the new site, and still not have to pay any tax on their winnings.
If you are impacted by this change, the change over is promised to be easy and painless. In their statement Full Tilt promised “Full Tilt Poker players in those countries can easily update their existing software and re-register their accounts to fulltiltpoker.eu and balances on those accounts – including cash and Full Tilt Poker Points – will be automatically moved over and available immediately once the move is completed.”
