Full Tilt Poker Claims

John Pappas of the Poker Players Alliance has been working alongside the Garden City Group on the Full Tilt Poker claims, Pappas sent out some great news via Twitter yesterday.

The tweets stated that the DoJ have given their approval to refund more than $82 million to 30,000 players, the fulltiltpokerclaims website will be updated later today and that players with undisputed claims should be paid soon.

The process has taken a very long time and petitions for remissions were audited by the Garden City Group who had to match each claim with the data provided by Full Tilt Poker.

Players were contacted by the GCG during the remission process and were given their bankroll balance, players could then accept this amount or contest it if it was incorrect.

Many players failed to complete their submission forms correctly, these players will be given a chance to correct the details and resubmit.

All undisputed claims may be paid out sooner than expected, they may be paid out within a few days not weeks. It seems that outstanding payments for USA FullTilt players will soon be reunited with their long lost poker bankrolls.
