The remission process for returning Full Tilt Poker funds to United States players is set to start in one month, according to an update from Garden City Group, the claims administrator in charge of the process.
Garden City provided an update on Friday on its website for Full Tilt claims.
According to the update, anyone who is possibly eligible to receive funds from Black Friday — when Full Tilt Poker’s domain and others were seized by the U.S. government in 2011 — will be contacted by email starting in September. From the website:
Starting on September 16, 2013, GCG will email a Notice with instructions on how to submit a Petition for Remission online to all potentially eligible claimants identified by GCG utilizing data supplied by Full Tilt Poker (“FTP”). The deadline to submit a Petition for Remission is November 15, 2013. Instructions concerning the filing of Petitions will be included in the Notice and will be posted on this website. Please continue to check this website for updates. Please note that the registration process for email notification is no longer available.
The update goes on to note that if you do not receive an email, you may still file a claim via the website.
American players are still owed approximately $150 million from the old Full Tilt Poker, before it was taken over by the parent company of PokerStars, Rational Group. Rational forfeited $547 million dollars to the United States Department of Justice in 2012, and a portion of those funds are being used in the remission process.
In a previous update, GCG noted that the remission process “will be based on players’ final balances with FTP as of April 15, 2011.”
