Private Equity Firm in the UK Shows Interest in Full Tilt Poker

While the online poker playing community has waited for the Groupe Bernard Tapie deal with Full Tilt Poker to become reality, for all intents and purposes it appears that it will not happen. News has surfaced from the iGaming Post that a private equity firm in the UK may be interested in acquiring the FTP software if the Tapie/FTP deal falls through.

Apparently the UK firm is not interested in relaunching the online poker site; the interest is only for the software.

iGaming Post states that "three separate reliable sources" have confirmed the UK firm's interest although the UK firm is not listed. Reportedly the firm would be willing to make an offer of between $30-$35 million for the FTP software and that sum “would be deposited in a neutral account for Administrators of the company to distributed to creditors of FTP.”

It is noted that both and 888Poker - though the reports are unconfirmed - have also been mentioned in association with acquiring the Full Tilt Poker software. Groupe Bernard Tapie remains optimistic about the FTP acquisition. Perhaps online poker players that have their funds in limbo can take some comfort from the fact that other parties are interested.
