Full Tilt

It’s taken years longer than expected but it appears tens of thousands of U.S. Full Tilt Poker players are finally within breathing distance of getting paid out.

According to a report by the Poker Players Alliance the U.S. Department of Justice is finished with its audit of the GCG Group's findings and is prepared to release $82 million in locked-up FTP funds to approximately 30,000 players.

It’s good news for any players with undisputed claims and payment info will be announced by the GCG Group shortly.

FTP players should keep an eye on fulltiltpokerclaims.com as the GCG is allegedly going to update the page with payment info in the next 24 hours.

It’s been nearly three years since online poker’s Black Friday froze tens of thousands of players' cash on Full Tilt Poker. Some poker players - such as pro Blair Hinkle - had more than $1 million trapped on the site.

Stay tuned as this story continues to break.
