Full Tilt slot Shut Down after losing Gambling Licence

Share This Post


Full Tilt Poker has been shut down by The Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) as they have suspended their European Gambling Licence. This has all come about following the events of ‘Black Friday’, 15th April 2011, when the US Atorney General’s Office stopped play for US Full Tilt players following an investigation by the FBI.

The shock decision by the AGCC has come into immediate effect and players have found themselves cut off in mid play in running tournaments. It has been impossible to connect to the software and consequently there is no access to players accounts, the website carries a message ‘Scheduled Maintenance in Progress’.

The AGCC have determined that Full Tilt Poker may not:

Register New Customers

Accept Deposits from Existing Customers

Allow existing customers to withdraw funds that are held in their accounts

Permit customers to participate in any form of slot game play or gambling transaction

So, is that the end of the road for Full Tilt Poker? Well, it looks like it is, at least until the next step, a Regulatory Hearing on Tuesday the 26th July to be held in London.

This is another cruel blow for loyal Full Tilt Players, not only can they not access their funds, but, what about the guys (and Gals!) doing well and on a roll or maybe on the road to Las Vegas to play in WSOP, my heart weeps for them, how very disappointing!

Players with funds tied up in Full Tilt are advised to go to the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) and request information on when and how they are to receive their funds. As soon as we have any information ourselves we will let you know.
