Full Tilt hearing held behind closed doors
In yet another blow to player’s hopes for transparency the AGCC met with Full Tilt in private
In a move that is guaranteed to make poker players even more cynical about the machinations going on behind the scenes in the world of online poker, the license hearing between the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) and the ailing poker site were held behind closed doors. Once again those players who have lost their money to the once great poker site are set to have their fate decided in secret, despite the promises made by the AGCC when they suspended Full Tilt’s gaming license.
Recently a class action lawsuit was initiated by lawyers in Canada in another bid to retrieve the funds owed to players by what was once one of the most popular gaming sites on the web. After a chaotic month which has seen their lawyers abandon them as well as potential investors the future is looking bleak for Full Tilt Poker as well as those who entrusted their money to the site. The allegations of fraud and money laundering struck deep in the world of online gaming really making players ask themselves what goes on in the murky underbelly of certain sites.
It is unlikely that those who have lost money will simply stop playing the game, William Hill has seen a massive rise in the number of players who can no longer access their Full Tilt Poker accounts. This is to be expected since the game that they know and love is still being played online and since William Hill always stuck to the letter of the law and refused to provide services to players in the United States and ensure the safety of their client’s money.
