Full Tilt Poker closes its doors to the world

[ Posted June 30th, 2011 ] by admin

The Black Friday aftershocks seem to be still ringing through the world.

First it was the American market which felt the brunt of the US Department of Justice long arm of the law. Now it seems crippled Full Tilt Poker has closed it’s doors to the rest of the world.

What does this mean for Australian and non-US Full Tilt Poker players?

It’s unclear what the future holds with Full Tilt Poker, one thing we do know is that it is unlikely FTP will ever be the same as it once was.

Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) suspended the license of Full Tilt Poker and ordered the site to suspend all operations. According to preliminary reports, games on Full Tilt worldwide came to a sudden halt.

The AGCC released the following statement on the matter:

“Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) has today issued Hearing Notices under Regulation 46 of its Regulations to Vantage Ltd, Oxalic Ltd, Filco Ltd and Orinic Ltd, collectively trading as FULL TILT POKER.

In addition, AGCC has issued Suspension Notices under Regulation 47 to the above named companies requiring them to suspend all operations with immediate effect.

The decision to suspend these licenses follows a special investigation prompted by the indictments unsealed by U.S. Attorney General’s Office in the Southern District of New York on April 15, 2011, during which grounds were found to indicate that these licensees and their business associates were operating contrary to Alderney legislation. The nature of the findings necessitated the taking of immediate action in the public interest.

The venue and date for the hearing will be announced in due course.

Issued by:

André Wilsenach (Executive Director)
Alderney Gambling Control Commission
Channel Islands

Date issued: 29th June 2011″

PokerStars and others have continued to operate as usual as they operate their gaming license out of a different area.
