PokerStars has announced their plans repaying Full Tilt Poker’s players outside of the United States. The $184 million program is part of series of business events leading to the fabled poker site’s relaunch on November 6.
How It Works
The repayment is a patchwork of programs designed to conform with the patchwork of global gaming laws, so the process will vary by location.
Any former Full Tilt player with an outstanding account from France, Spain, Denmark, Estonia or Belgium will be connected with a local, licensed PokerStars representative. That account will be paired with a PokerStars account from which they can withdraw their funds.
In places like the UK and Ireland, players will be able to access their funds directly from an official www.FullTiltPoker.com account.
American player accounts will be administered through a fund that’s coming out of the $547 million fund PokerStars paid to the U.S. Department of Justice.
In a statement on their PokerStars officials said:
PokerStars has been working with regulators in all relevant jurisdictions to ensure that repayment is conducted in strict compliance with local regulatory requirements that ensure the security of player accounts and confirmation of the rightful ownership of those accounts
