Alderney Gambling Control Commission Suspects Operations At Full Tilt Poker

By Debra SaundersGoogle


Today, the Alderney Gambling Control Commissions suspended the operations of Full Tilt Poker.  This has come in light of the indictments that were set forth by the US Department of Justice in the US in April.  So far, while PokerStars, another poker room that was indicted (out of the three biggest in the world, PokerStars, Absolute Poker and Full Tilt), has paid out over $100 million to US players. So far, Full Tilt hasn't followed suit and a lot of players in both the US and outside the US haven't been paid.


As a result, Full Tilt spokespeople and professional poker players Phil Ivey and Tom 'durrr' Dwan have publically spoken out against Full Tilt and have distanced themselves from the brand. 


The hearing for the suspension is scheduled for July 26th.  Before then none of Full Tilt's operations will resume. It will be interesting to see how this progresses in the coming weeks.
