Poker Community Discusses How to Spend Full Tilt Poker Refunds


Our Sexy Funny Crazy barrel just can’t get enough and this time the famous TwoPlusTwo forum talks about how to spend Full Tilt Poker refunds.

A Quick Recap on Full Tilt Poker Refunds

Following the US federal crackdown on April 15, 2011, aka Black Friday, Full Tilt Poker players could no longer access their poker funds on the FTP site. Despite many promises for refunds, as part of a settlement deal between the US government, Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars; nothing ever materialized. According to the US Department of Justice press release, “Full Tilt Poker owed approximately $390 million to players around the world, including approximately $160 million to players in the United States.  At that time, Full Tilt Poker had only approximately $60 million on deposit in its bank accounts.”

Then in March of 2013, the Garden City Group announced that US players on Full Tilt Poker would be refunded and that they should start filing their claims from September 16th, 2013. They provided a 60-day window for filing claims in their announcement that read:

“Starting on September 16, 2013, GCG will email a Notice with instructions on how to submit a Petition for Remission online to all potentially eligible claimants identified by GCG utilizing data supplied by Full Tilt Poker (“FTP”). The deadline to submit a Petition for Remission is November 15, 2013. Instructions concerning the filing of Petitions will be included in the Notice and will be posted on this website. Please continue to check this website for updates. Please note that the registration process for email notification is no longer available.”

Either way people are still positive that if not by Christmas this year, then at least by early 2014, they will have received their Full Tilt Poker refunds.
