3,500 US Full Tilt Poker Refunds Coming June 12

5

According to a statement posted on FullTiltPokerClaims.com, the next round of US Full Tilt Poker remission payments will be issued this Thursday, June 12. Included are 3,500 petitioners who will receive a total of $15 million. Garden City Group, the appointed Claims Administrator for Full Tilt Poker refunds, has been busy testing bank accounts of petitioners to ensure their correctness.

To that end, the statement read in part, “CGG has identified certain petitioners who are approved for payment but who submitted account information that was either incomplete or incorrect. On June 6, 2014, GCG sent emails to all such petitioners with instructions as to how to update their bank account information through the online filing site.” These petitioners have until June 25 to update their information or else a check will be snail-mailed to the address on file with their petition.

If you didn’t see any activity in your bank account, don’t fear. Garden City explained, “All other petitioners who have been approved for payment in the upcoming distribution and whose bank account information has passed the preliminary testing process will be sent an e-mail notice in the next couple of days with the amount of their payment.”

Over $80 million has been sent to players thus far, meaning that once the latest round of refunds is accounted for, nearly $100 million will have been paid back to former US Full Tilt customers. Thursday’s recipients will include those who confirmed their Full Tilt Poker balances tardily and, for the first time, affiliates of what was once the second largest online poker room in the world.

Players with disputed Full Tilt claims still have not been paid back, joining Full Tilt Red Pros in that distinction. According to Poker Players Alliance Executive Director John Pappas (pictured), “The latest wave of approved remissions will clear the way for more attention to be given to disputed claims. [The Department of Justice] said they have a huge task of sorting and then analyzing all of the documents provided by players, and that it is still going to take some time.”

  1. FULLTILT POKER IS A SKANK SITE OPERATED BY THIEVERY ASSHOLES, AT THE END OF THE DAY ITS NO WONDER GUS HANSEN WENT BROKE AND DO YOU KNOW WHY ? WELL LET ME EXPAIN WHY.Their software : its “flip poker at best varified with being ponzied” which means no matter what your dealt ,no matter how hard you play ,no matter what cards your holding ,YOU WILL NEVER EVER WIN .”!I am down 5000 dollars , been playing fulltilt for 5-7 years online , I get significant chip leads in tournaments and then everything goes against me until im back to my starting stack to which i began the tournament . So fulltilt is either manipulating the course outcome of the hands or the data is screwed so that its impossible to gain an advantage and play concourse poker , inevitably going broke at every turn and cooler and dodgy river cards that flow frequently.point is , they target chip leaders , they manipulate the fiels sizes, they move and adjust tables accordingly to suit and they have tools at thier dispersal to render you beaten in tournament play.all in all poker thieves are good at what they do , either employ strong poker in-house bot players called shills /props and make you lose . Fulltilt are a waste of time playing on , then again owned by pokerstars the leading brand of online people who say nothing about the ept thefts and the current ongoing stealing of players data and laptops.so all in all dont trust any of the sites with anything. , they make you lose the cash its almost unforgivable.Not through enjoyment i hasten to add.! thier is no enjoyment in losing , pokerstars has thier online set of players outoing everyone , they just fuk everyone else over time and time again

    • fuk the remissions process too , what they ever give my account ffs, well ehh nothing!! in 5 years i get to deposit $5,000 or more in cold hard cash on a weekly /monthly basis and they have never even given me a penny back .you just cant win on the site , if you cash its always a min-cash , and its a joke to compete and get coolered every time in the blinds A7 vs AA etc , so discusting this site is thats how it goes.no-win poker!!ponzi isnt the word ; its blatant theft of money through online branded poker software that is just degenerate and unable to compete in properly . cannot win no matter how hard it works. wait for hands or trying to set mine is liking to ask the police if they have weapons or not . The reality of this site is that it is feeding pokerstars . fulltilt is deadI hope they enjoyed my money ,i know absolute poker did with all those fake players and cheaters like annie duke out there skimming off her boyfriends profits. scummy assed wankers

    • personally i hope they all get shut down , then i will definately have to play more live poker .!just my view but lets face facts why the fuk are the united stated players not playing online , it doesnt make sense because unless they found the software corrupt then i see the only reason is pokerstars and fulltilt are running a offshore scan on the isle of man tax haven.for what its worth noting as well . perhaps theyd come clean about the laptop thefts and what trojan malwares was installed on jens laptop and others. fed up senior management giving everyone the runaround and yet the real truth lies in the stuff that was taken from the laptops from the players . key data , the software is bent not to say the least but pokerstars intrusion checking up on players computers checking for unknown proxies and connections isnt going to go down too well , considering pokerstars thinks its running a business. we all know what they fuking do there. there games are tilted so much its called flip poker all in every hand . even the odds are stacked against you even with aces.
