Full tilt poker room

Three large poker rooms were involved in the scandal, which is also called “Black Friday”. One of them, the online poker operator Full Tilt Poker, has serious problems with this.

The US government filed a lawsuit against the three leading poker rooms, as the latter violated federal law. According to one of the requirements set forth in the lawsuit, the operators had to return the money to the players. But Full Tilt Poker accounts were unavailable because they were frozen in Cuba, and the operator is not able to fulfill the request for a refund.

According to US law, heads of online poker tournaments operators have been accused of money laundering and financial fraud. The scheme of fraud was that the players for the replenishment of game deposits in the column on the purpose of the payment indicated the purchase of any object, such as a golf ball, and the small banks with which the poker rooms cooperated, carried out similar calculations, although they knew on the intended payments.

On the eve of the scandal, French investors were considering the possibility of buying Full Tilt Poker, but the deal was canceled and the new owners must now fulfill their old obligations and pay American players the money lost after the closing of the poker room. The Ministry of Justice for the fulfillment of this condition gave a period of 90 days from the date of purchase of the poker room.

Full Tilt Poker’s last survival chance is to resell the poker room to another major PokerStars operator. Rumors about possible negotiations appeared after the deal with the French was thwarted.

Given the amount of compensation to the players, the cost of the poker room will be approximately $ 750 million. The amount of compensation in this figure is about 300 million dollars.
