There is someone in this site The BankrollMob who was cheating and stolen by this Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet. It seems that players will be paid. The American Department of Justice will pay the players money. Strange is Scott Tom the founder will only make one week of prison and will pay 300.000 dollars to amend. Very little prison for what he did.

Two rooms out of the stone age of online poker. Good to hear the affected players will get at least some of their money back. But it took nearly 10 years to solve the issue, as the scandal came to light in 2007-2008. Shock

Never thought that the ones had money over there will be paid.
It has been a long time since that happened.
I bet many of the new member might not even know the sites Smile
Wonder how many of the small money players have kept data, of what they had in.

Of cause not to the old informations obtained from the sites involved that are a decade old. Players had to file a claim with the authorities to be able to receive their money back. Ususal process in such circumstances.

this is certainly a very old story and the fact that the money will be returned to the players is of course very impressive !!! ..... as impressive is the very short term of imprisonment and a very small fine of the main swindler .... maybe we do not know what too and what are then additional sanctions for him?

There are already many articles about it everywhere.
As it has already been sain in another post here, some of the players have got their money already.
What i have read and was interesting, is that they are using money form the settlement
with pokerstars and the fine they had paid then, to pay the players.

well to be honest its really strange to see that the money will be paid out, and not because of this fact but because of the time that has passed from the bankruptcy of the sites. wow after 10 years to have the final decision... one can safely think that majority of clients already have written off this money as pure losses.

All the same will pay not to all. The fate of many players from these rooms isn't known. But I hope that they will understand correctly and honestly. But it is very strange why, so many years later they have decided to pay off with debts?

It remains to be seen if they are going to pay all of them and in full.
If the money they have to repay is going to exceed the amount left from the
settlement the pokerstars had, where the rest will come from?

I too think that it is very strange situation with money that was steal from players now after ten years is going back to players, i don't think that all players can be contacted, some forget all the details of accounts, soem forget about all this situation. But it is good to see that some money is boing back.

When the process is delayed very much it's going to take years but these things are seen on the face.
He bought the judge surely. Lawyers are the ones who arrange those things. Justice is not right anywhere in the world maybe with except for a few countries. It's good that people get the money back. Not all peoples after 10 years but is good.

Even if only a few got paid, it is much better than nothing.
It shows that the system works somehow, in some countries.
At least some times Smile
But the penalty isnt one that can give a lesson to others and thats the point.

So I remember these rooms! I also played there and even some some dollars remained there. I do not know why, but I remember that I really liked their software. If someone still remembers their software, share your memories please Smile
