It has been a year since American players from the original Full Tilt and Pokerstars saw the U.S Government freeze funds that were owed to them. PokerStars stated every dime that they won would be given to them. The money has still yet to be refunded to the players and it seems repayment is a long ways away.
The Administrator who makes these claims for the US Government has claimed that the feds are still in the process of trying to figure out a way to make all the proper payments with no issues along the way. This can take a very long time because there are so many players who didn’t get their winnings from PokerStars/Full Tilt Poker.
Those who are in a hurry to receive their money shouldn’t get excited any time soon. The estimated time that it will take to give players all of their money back won’t start until 2014 or 2015.
Just like we always have we will continue to provide you with any updates that have to deal with the PokerStars/Full Tilt Poker fiasco that it is having with the US Government right now.
