ARJEL, the French gaming regulator, has announced their plans for reimbursing Full Tilt Poker players under their jurisdiction. It’s just the latest in a frenzy of action coming ahead of Full Tilt’s anticipated November 6 relaunch.
Under the ARJEL plan, French players will be allowed to move their long-frozen FullTilt.Fr money to a PokerStars.Fr account. Once it’s moved, players can withdraw the cash or continue playing on PokerStars.
Full Tilt will not be operating in France thanks to problems they had there in the past.
The French plan is pretty much what other European states, including Spain, Denmark, Estonia and Belgium, will be using to reimburse their Full Tilt players. Other countries like Italy and the United States will be administering their own reimbursement plans.
PokerStars.Fr is currently the second biggest poker site operating in the French market.
Since closing their deal to purchase Full Tilt’s assets during the summer, PokerStars has been working full bore to get the site back up. So far, they seem on track to meet that November 6 launch date.
