Full Tilt and Pokerstars To Refund Money?

Full Tilt Employee Counting Lucki Duck's Refund
Although it's not a "done deal'" it looks like an avenue has been opened for US poker players to be able to withdraw their money from both Full Tilt and Pokerstars.

Dan Cypra at Poker News Daily has the by-line. Click here for the complete article.

"A Department of Justice press release read in part, “This office expects the companies to return the money that U.S. players entrusted to them, and we will work with the poker companies to facilitate the return of funds to players, as today’s agreements with PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker demonstrate.”

Returning the funds doesn’t appear to be an open and shut case. Within minutes of the Department of Justice announcing the deal, Full Tilt Poker commented in a press release obtained by Poker News Daily, “As a result of the recent enforcement action, there exists no authorized U.S. payment channel through which to make refunds; Full Tilt Poker has no accounting of the millions of dollars of player funds that were seized by the government; and the government has not agreed to permit any of the seized player funds to be returned to the players.”
Let's hope the poker sites step up and ship the loot.

Till next time, win the flips.
