New Full Tilt to US Players: Talk to the DOJ

by , Oct 11, 2012 | 1:38 pm

Emails apparently have gone out to Full Tilt’s American player base — their first direct contact with customers for I don’t know how long. And even though that’s a clear sign things are moving forward toward resolution, redemption may still be a way’s away … or at least will probably require a lot more paperwork.

(Now stop bothering us already!)

Dear [player id],

As a player on Full Tilt Poker, you may be aware of the recent settlement reached with the U.S. Department of Justice (the “DOJ”).

Full Tilt Poker will not offer real money online poker in the U.S. until it is permissible to do so under relevant law.

In relation to your account balance, you will have the opportunity to file petition with the DOJ through a remission process which will be administrated by the DOJ.

In light of the above, only play chip games will be available to Full Tilt Poker players in the U.S. following re-launch, in the first week of November, 2012. Your Full Tilt Points balance will remain intact in your account.

Please note that we are unable to answer queries in relation to your funds – all such questions should be directed to the DOJ in accordance with the procedure to be defined by them.

Please retain this email for your records.
