We knew that this day would come.
For those who haven't yet determined that the twice-weekly Aces Casino Blog writers are nothing more than "Ministers of Propaganda" for the top Orange County casino party company in southern California, we have a surprise for you. It's true: The Aces Blog WAS created to preserve the company's motto of "This Beats Working" with it's top-flight irreverence in print while also providing the company with a platform to show off Aces Casino's ability to put on FABULOUS Las Vegas night casino parties, but there actually was ANOTHER reason for this blog's creation back in 2010 -- Aces Casino Entertainment also wanted to have a platform that had the ability to bring important news to gaming enthusiasts both here in the United States as well as around the world.
This would be one of those days.
Last week, the Aces Casino Blog was able to confirm Poker Players Alliance reports of some big news from the online poker world. In conjunction with the U.S. Department Of Justice, a website has just been established with the express purpose of facilitating processing claims of monetary loss suffered by clients of the online poker engine known as Full Tilt Poker.
Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced today that the United States has retained the Garden City Group (“GCG”) to serve as Claims Administrator to oversee the process of compensating eligible victims of the fraud committed by Full Tilt Poker against United States players that was set forth in both the civil money laundering and forfeiture action United States v. PokerStars, et al., and the indictment United States v. Bitar, et. al. The entire press release can be accessed thru this link.
Now, let's list some important links that clients / U.S. poker players that lost funds on the Full Tilt Poker web site can use to obtain more information on this ground-breaking announcement...
Poker Players Alliance Web Site link to repayment plan and information
Here is the link to the Full Tilt Poker Claims website to register your e-mail address
Needless to say, this is FANTASTIC news for those of us that suffered thru "Black Friday" some two years ago. It looks like the wheels of poker justice are finally beginning to turn. We found some interesting news blips on these sites, including a request for parties injured in this poker engine seizure to register their e-mail address with the claims administrator, and ALSO to check their Full Tilt Poker account information in order to properly submit your name and e-mail address.
You'll also find the link to enable players to register that e-mail address and other pertinent information here. For all of our many readers, please spread the word that the website for claims v. Full Tilt has been created, and take the time to register with the DOJ and the State of New York, so you can get your $$$$$ back.
That's all for now. Once again, this was an Aces Casino Blog Special Report, brought to you by the top Orange County Casino party company in SoCal. We'll return to the Blog tomorrow with our usual parakeet paper submissions. For all FTP players here in the United States -- Go and REGISTER, and we'll see you all tomorrow here at the "Blog!"
