Posted by bullettooth1: according to the alderney gambling control website, orinic has removed its application for a catagory 2 e-gambling license.
i guess that means an even longer wait for ftp fans.
feels like we've had a carrot dangling in front of our faces only for it to be snatched away.
when will this saga end???
Some time in the year 2015, by then people will be forced to play with all the lights off in their house, under a blanket, cuz "big brother" has made it completely illegal for anyone to play online, under penalty of testicular ellectrocution :S
That sucks, I guess that's the confirmation that we were all waiting for. I guess it should come as no suprise, seeing as how everyone said from the get go Tapie was just using this as a publicity stunt and had no real intentions of following through. Personally, I think that makes him out to be an even bigger douche than the idiots that stole our money and caused this all in the first place.

yeah i dunno what to make of it. i think the doj wanted everyone to get their money back straight away and gbt wanted people to play there for a bit first so they wernt just gonna pile aload of money in just for everyone to take it out and not play there anymore. that doesnt make buisness sense lol.
i can see both sides point of view. i wish gbt did get it back up and running tho, i wasnt planning on taking my money and running, and from what ive been reading around the net, quite alot of people wernt either. but i guess there would be alot of people who were planning on doing that.
looks like its right back at square one again soooooo frustrating

The last month’s news would put everyone thinking they could open business in August, but now that seems impossible. No matter who takes it, the one who goes for it already knows it will have to be able to pay everyone before he can start activity. I don’t know the amount of that debt, but summing that to the investment of buying FTP, must be a lot of millions. The question is on being able to try to find how long will take for the business to pay that debt for itself, just for being in activity, with an accurate proximity. For example, you open a bar, you spend $300,000, but you know that if you do around $20,000 per month, you will starting taking profits of your business in two years. FTP account is a bit more complex, but those who have money to invest only have to ask someone to do this accounting for them and then they will see if its profitable to invest or not.

The best of the possible buy of FTP (money back apart) is that we can forget to the horrible/thieves/incompetents AGCC. Pokerstars works with other regulator and i think the new FTP will work with the same as Pokerstars.
