Full Tilt Poker European License Suspended

29 June 2011

In a major online poker development today, Alderney Gambling Control Commission has suspended the operations license of Full Tilt Poker. This requires the online poker room to suspend operations immediately and currently the servers are down.

Full Tilt Poker was one of the largest online poker rooms in operation up until the U.S. crackdown on April 15th. Since then it has created some hard feelings among many players, its sponsored poker pro’s, some industry insiders and now it looks like the Alderney Gambling Control Commission as well over its apparent holding back of payments due players.

Now, there is not much anyone can do now that Full Tilt has lost its European license. Until further notice all games are paused and cash-outs are not available.

The official announcement from Alderney said:

“The decision to suspend these licenses follows a special investigation prompted by the indictments unsealed by US Attorney General’s Office in the Southern District of New York on 15th April 2011, during which grounds were found to indicate that these licensees and their business associates were operating contrary to Alderney legislation.”
