Orinic Applies for Category 2 Online Gambling License
On the surface, there is nothing too exciting about Orinic Limited applying for a Category 2 online gambling license with the Alderney Gaming Control Commission. However, this may signify that Full Tilt Poker has plans on re-opening in the near future.
Orinic – a Full Tilt Poker subsidiary – previously held a Category 1 license. Although this license was taken away by the Alderney Gaming Control Commission last year, unlike other subsidiaries it was not completely revoked. Fortunately for FTP, the relatively young age of Orinic (incorporated in January 2011) allowed the company to keep its license as it had yet to violate any regulations.
At the time when FTP’s troubles started, Orinic was not hosting any games. For this reason, their license was only suspended for a period of six months. On March 23, 2012 this suspension came to an end and the company did not waste any time reapplying for a Category 2 license.
