AGCC to FTP Players: Don't Come To Us

Alderney Gambling Control Commission

Now that the Alderney Gambling Control Commission has revoked Full Tilt Poker's operating licenses, it has one more message for FTP's former players:

Don't come to us.

In the wake of the announcement of the license revocations last week, AGCC Executive Director Andre Wilsenach made it clear he thinks Full Tilt is entirely to blame for the situation and the AGCC was duped into believing false financial statements.

As for what happens next, the AGCC has further clarified its position and posted another message on its website for Full Tilt players left in the lurch.

Titled "On-going concerns of Full Tilt's registered players," below is the post in full.

"Following the revocation of the licences, AGCC no longer has authority to intermediate or arbitrate on player issues or disputes with Full Tilt (excepting for players registered under a Swiss address).

Players may have the following alternative options:-

1. Full Tilt has been requested to provide a specific player contact: this is awaited and will be incorporated here upon receipt.

2. Any player who believes they are a victim of crime, as a result of their dealings with Full Tilt, should in the first instance contact their own local police in their country of residence and report the matter to them. These reports will then be co-ordinated centrally.

 3. It is understood that a number of civil actions have been initiated by players against Full Tilt, some as class actions representing multiple players by UK, US and Canadian lawyers. Details of the firms concerned can be found through internet search."

No time frame for the appointment of a player contact has been given by either the AGCC or Full Tilt.
