11/18/2012 : FRENCH FULL TILT PLAYERS SMILING (Update)
Reimbursement to French players well underway
According to ARJEL, the French Online Gambling Regulatory Authority, 6418 French Full Tilt players have had Euro 3 071 663 reimbursed through credits on their PokerStars accounts following a repayment scheme undertaken by PokerStars on November 2, 2012.
The figure amounts to more than three quarters of the full asset involved in the repayment process which was placed in a trust arrangement by PokerStars, said an ARJEL statement.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for US players who still have a long wait ahead of them where there has seemingly been no progress made on a reimbursement scheme by the Department of Justice (which does not involve PokerStars) according to the Poker Players’ Alliance
