Alderney gives Full Tilt more time

27 July 2011

A substantive hearing regarding the future of Full Tilt Poker's gaming license has been delayed to allow Full Tilt “to further pursue advanced commercial negotiations which could lead to a more beneficial outcome for player interests,” the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) announced Wednesday. The AGCC says a substantive hearing on Full Tilt’s license will begin no later than Sept. 15.

The AGCC and representatives of Full Tilt met in London on Tuesday to discuss the AGCC's decision to suspend Full Tilt's gaming license on June 29. As a result of the suspension, all of the online poker room's operations were halted immediately.

The AGCC said the decision to delay the hearing is in the best interest of Full Tilt's customers.

Full Tilt Poker, along with PokerStars and Absolute Poker, saw its founder indicted and its domain seized by the U.S. Department of Justice on April 15. The DOJ agreed to return the online poker room’s domain in exchange for Full Tilt's refunding American players their money and halting real-money games for Americans. Full Tilt continued to offer real-money games to customers outside the U.S. until its license was suspended.

Unlike PokerStars, Full Tilt has yet to repay any American customers.
