Full Tilt players in the U.S. have been anxiously awaiting word on when the remission process via the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) will begin in order to submit claims for their funds that have been frozen on the site since last year. Full Tilt sent emails to U.S. players Thursday, but the missive didn’t add anything that most players didn’t already know.
The email merely stated that U.S. players with account balances on the site “will have the opportunity to file petition with the DoJ through a remission process which will be administrated by the DoJ.” Furthermore, “only play chip games will be available to Full Tilt Poker players in the U.S. following re-launch.” The email did have a positive outlook on possible legislation that would allow American players to one day play again at Full Tilt by stating, “your Full Tilt Points balance will remain intact in your account.”
The email closed by stating that all questions pertaining to U.S. player reimbursement “should be directed to the DoJ,” as Full Tilt cannot assist U.S. players in that regard. PokerUpdate attempted to obtain information on the remission process from the DoJ, but no updates were made available. Rest-of-world players are scheduled to be reunited with their account balances by the relaunch date of Nov. 6.
