PokerStars and Full Tilt to present repayment plan this month

Tags: black friday, doj, igaming post, pokerstars, repayment plan, us department of justice.
Posted on 16 May 2012 by "T".

According to a report from iGaming Post, PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) have reached an agreement on paying back Full Tilt Poker players and the official repayment plan might be presented already at the end of this month.

Once the announcement has been made and the U.S. Department of Justice has approved it, both Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars should be able to apply for licenses within the U.S., when and if online poker is regulated in the future.

PokerStars to buy Full Tilt Poker?
The rumor that PokerStars will buy Full Tilt Poker has still not been confirmed by neither site, however, there has been a lot of talk on the matter. Some people say that PokerStars would make a great move by buying Full Tilt Poker because they would have almost total control over the poker market. Others think that PokerStars don't need Full Tilt Poker since many of their non-US players already are playing with them today. Besides that, many think that Full Tilt Poker's bad reputation (after Black Friday) would be too hard to wash off.

good news, to learn that will make payment to the players affected by those at FullTilt Poker and PokerStars
 Fakiry16/05/2012 14:30:46 GMT
If Pokerstars is helping to make the payment to FT poker players, that’s got to mean something. If they aren’t buying FT, at least they should keep a presence in the organization, perhaps with some members in the administration. This is the way it works in companies from others sectors of activity, it shouldn’t be that different in the game market. At least these are good news for US poker players, as it should be soon that Pokerstars will restart the activity there again.

i am a little bit confused to be fair- if stars are in a plan to repay the customers of full tilt the cash, then doesn't it already mean that stars own full tilt- why the hell would you want to repay other company clients? maybe i misread something, but that sounds odd...p.s. give my $0.36 back
 Smilie16/05/2012 17:44:15 GMT
Glad I got all my money out in time. Smile

It would really be a great news if POkerstars will buy full tilt poker and give the money back to all players that had real money on their accounts.

On the other hand a even better news would be if US players will be allowed once again to play on Pokerstars and ftp(if it will open) Smile

Essentially PS is on a poker global domination thing.

It'll be great if the players actually get their money.

Every other poker site must be sweating this possible takeover though.
 P1ntar0la16/05/2012 21:45:08 GMT
PS buying FT is definitely good news for FT player who has money to cash out… But will it be good news for poker in general?? Seem to be just a tremendous strategy before legalization of poker in US. think about it...
 damosk16/05/2012 21:48:40 GMT
Hmmm! Interesting news. I cant wait to regain my FT money. Bizarre situation which will no doubt all come out in the wash soon. Also it will be interesting to see how it all gets paid! I wait in anticipation, but am not holding my breath!
 wolfydan17/05/2012 00:59:42 GMT
i hope this is not a load of shi% again sometimes i think it would be better if they just said fuc% off u are not getting your money then everyone can move on so i really hope this is the last time someones going to buy full tilt and theybetter keep the rakeback or i will withdraw and leave
 wayney123317/05/2012 02:22:14 GMT

 bullettooth117/05/2012 08:03:18 GMT
urgh! because of the massive disappointment of the gbt situation im not getting my hopes up until the site is back up and running and im playing with my $100 again Tongue

its dragged on long enough now. i wish they would just get it sorted
 Chartoule17/05/2012 08:10:45 GMT
New timeline, seems good news. Unfortunately is too late for me(and spanish users) because in 1st Juny relulation begins and part of my roll in FTP will go to taxes...
 JBCD7117/05/2012 08:59:56 GMT
PokerStars and FullTilt were maybe partners from the begining? Conspiracy theorists gotta like that concept.
 Greenmohave17/05/2012 20:30:26 GMT
The U.S. DOJ can eat poop so sick of their nosey ass everywhere they think that they can make a capital gain, but will they look in to real problems? Not if it's not profitable to them. That's what ticks me off the most.
 APB198918/05/2012 14:30:43 GMT
i had $200 on FTP but I never deposited any money. Am I eligible for the cash out???
 rv20/05/2012 11:47:20 GMT
Just wow! Hats off to guys who kept faith on getting back their money. I will beleive when it gonna happen though.
 WinAllDay20/05/2012 15:39:32 GMT

 schwabo02/06/2012 14:36:06 GMT
I think that points you can forget ,if you get money you may be happy Thumbs Up and i think that will be some big limit for cashout (in pokerstars is $100) and lots of people couldn't cashout
Worship Worship Worship Dollar Dollar Dollar Worship Worship Worship
 Macubaas02/06/2012 15:37:15 GMT
I think these are some darks time for all people that had money on their full tilt poker accounts...

Nothing has happend this months, the only official thing is that GBT is out of the FTP buisness.
 crash5802/06/2012 20:04:44 GMT

 bullettooth106/06/2012 07:19:17 GMT
so the end of the month has passed. where is this info?

ive given up hope on this very sorry situation. looks like we'l be getting daft little rumours every so often then nothing for ages.

even if it does come back it wont be anywhere near as good as it used to be with pokerstars getting their grubby, tight mits on it. (no rakeback, no earning points quickly, ie. happy hours, points for being dealt into the hand etc.)

its just not going to be the same Sad
 AA-Daelt-AA10/06/2012 08:01:44 GMT
i just hope we get some good news for everyone that has some money stuck on full tilt poker. And lets hope we wont have anymore scandal of that type.
 cardwizard011/06/2012 13:30:43 GMT
Have about 2k stuck there. Hope to get my money back soon.
 rbdflyboy12/06/2012 03:38:15 GMT
If I read this right...Poker Stars can apply for a licence to allow US players to deposit and play real money games. I don't see anything about Stars paying off Full Tilt players. Stars will be able to pay off their own US player base when all is said and done. As for Stars buying Tilt....rumor only. Personally can't sse it happening.
