Online poker giant PokerStars has flown computer equipment associated with Full Tilt Poker to the Isle Of Man, according to a report published today by EGR. PokerStars corporate communication head Eric Hollreiser referred to the transportation as a "big part" of the next step for the coming relaunch of Full Tilt poker.

PokerStars acquired Full Tilt Poker assets in a deal struck with US Department of Justice on July 31st, 2012. As part of the deal, PokerStars was required to see to the repayment of all Full Tilt Poker players, including $184 million to non-US players. In all, PokerStars agreed to fork over $547 million to settle its legal case, with the US DOJ responsible for repayment to American FTP players.

PokerStars made its first payment to the DOJ for $225 million in August.

PokerStars plans to relaunch Full Tilt Poker on or before November 6th, 2012. It remains to be seen what the product will look like, and if there will be any custom additions to the software.

PokerStars signed a sponsorship deal with a French soccer club RC Leans, continuing its global marketing brilliance. SBR is attempting to arrange an interview with PokerStars corporate comm. head Eric Hollreiser.
