It’s official: Full Tilt Poker‘s license to operating online poker games was suspended by the Alderney Gaming Control Comission on June 29, 2011. Full Tilt Poker had to close its doors to US players on April 15th, but it seems that the site will shut down for all players soon. This is really bad news for online poker players.
Currently the site still works, but players cannot access the poker client. The AGCC said in a statement that “The decision to suspend these licenses follows a special investigation prompted by the indictments unsealed by US Attorney General’s Office in the Southern District of New York on 15th April 2011, (…) these licensees and their business associates were operating contrary to Alderney legislation.”
Full Tilt Poker may continue to operate without a license, but it remains uncertain if they will find a payment processor. Moneybookers has already stopped their partnership with the poker site. We are interested in your opinion about this. Leave a comment below.
