    Exclamation Full Tilt Migration or whats next prom PokerStars

    Yesterday PokerStars Partners announce something call "Full Tilt Migration". Which is, in fact, merging FullTilt and PokerStars accounts.

    Of course in the spirit of the company since Amaya bought them they will not miss the chance to steal from their affiliates:

    "Full Tilt accounts will now be treated under the same rules, so affiliates who are paid according to a revenue share deal will earn revenue from both brands that the player uses for the first two years of activity on a player’s account, just as currently applies on PokerStars. This will affect all referrals by affiliates, including retrospectively affecting those players referred prior to combining player pools."

    I believe this is what happens when a company managed to monopolize a whole sector. They just become greedy and arrogant beyond any reason.

    First they took form affiliates pockets - they introduced this "first two years" rule in may/june last year. My revenue dropped about 95%. Then they took from players - changing and reducing VIP program benefits.

    I believe this is what happens when a company managed to monopolize a whole sector.
    That is even an Austrian economical school that says that businesses always just try to monopolise the sector to generate a profit.

    For established affiliates with rev. share nothing good came from regulation and legalisation. I would recommend to anybody to think twice if they want to support "official bookies" in the USA. We are needed only for the growth. Once the income stream is established, the growth slows down and we are only a net loss for the company. Then they are looking not for us, but for the state protection of their market position. Even in exchange for higher taxes.
    There is no upper age limit but people over 60 years old are not recommended to trade bitcoin in consideration of price volatility and risk tolerance.
