FT has the better software. They also came up with Rush. This might also be a valid reason for them to buy FT. Rush was patent pending. A new owner could sue Stars for introducing Zoom.
Stars would be wise to relaunch Ft as it was (software, Rakeback, Tournament structures) People played on FT cause they prefered it over Stars. I don't see the point in purchasing a company for a lot of money just to destroy it's spirit and make it a second Stars.
I feel bad making a new thread but dont want this info lost elsewhere but cliffs are included my source I trust a lot.
Anyways the deal is already done by what I am told;
Players will be paid within 90 days
FTP will be open in the US market
Isai will be stepping down from the company
If these statements are true I feel that Isai deserves all our thanks+ business in the future with his company he is bailing out the igaming industry's tarnished reputation
I find the FTP open in the US market unlikely but still...who knows.
Do I understand the GBT statement correctly?
The US DOJ vetoed their plans for repaying Rest of the World players?
Isn't the rest of the world beyond the jurisdiction of the US DOJ?
Also isn't full repayment within 90 days a reasonable requirement
In my opinion GBT have had exclusive negotiations for more than long enough to get the deal done and they have dropped the ball.
