Another $5 Million Paid to U.S. Full Tilt Players

The claims administrator in the Full Tilt remission process announced yesterday that another 2,200 players have been reimbursed to the tune of $5 million.

This latest round of payments went to petitioners who had been approved in the first round of reimbursement that commenced on the last day of February (Green Friday), but who had supplied inaccurate bank account information to the Garden City Group (GCG). After submitting the correct banking details, those players have now received payment via ACH.

Players who neglected to provide GCG with accurate bank information by the due date of March 13 can now expect payment in the form of a cheque sent to the mailing address listed on the Petition for Remission. Players who owe a debt collectable by the Treasury Offset program are advised to fill out a Unified Financial Management System Vendor Request Form posthaste.

Added to the $76 million Green Friday payouts, approximately 29,700 former U.S. Full Tilt players have now been reunited with $81 million that had been in limbo since Black Friday, the three-year anniversary of which is a mere two weeks away.

Players still estranged from their funds include Full Tilt affiliates, pros, and players who took issue with the account balances on record with the DoJ and GCG. Though no time table has been mentioned at the latest update, announcements regarding the petitions of those players are likely next on the GCG agenda.
