The world’s second largest online poker room, Full Tilt Poker, on Monday announced it will be joining forces with Station Casinos owners Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta and Travelscape founders Tom Breitling and Tim Poster following an announcement two weeks ago from PokerStars, the world’s largest online card room, that it would be teaming up with Wynn Resorts

Breitling told the Las Vegas Review Journal:  “We do believe that a federal online poker bill would be good for Nevada. Nevada is a leader in gaming regulation, and we need the thousands of high-paying high tech jobs and the millions in tax revenues associated with online poker.”

Station Casinos itself would not be involved with the partnership based on preliminary reports but rather the Fertitta brothers would instead be setting up a separate enterprise incorporating Full Tilt Poker, Fertitta Interactive. 

It is widely believed that the Fertittas would also use their Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) platform to heavily promote Full Tilt Poker. 

Full Tilt, however, has been plagued by payout complaints stemming from recent US Government efforts to freeze assets of key payment processors doing business with the Web card room. 

In recent months a few European online poker ventures have also announced partnership deals with casinos including Caesar’s and MGM.
