Accordingly, the players will certainly work hard and do their best in all disciplines. The “Double-Up” card that every player receives and with which you can double your points in one go in the preliminary rounds could help a little here . There will also be a joker . Only those who are among the best in their group after these three rounds can advance to the final, in which a mixture of all three poker disciplines is once again on the table. It will be interesting to see who will use the better strategy to play their way to the top.
Bye bye Full Tilt Poker!
Full Tilt Poker has had its license revoked by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. Together with PokerStars, the platform was one of the largest providers of online poker. Both platforms have an annual turnover of around five billion dollars.Full Tilt Poker is based in Aruba , the Caribbean island belonging to the Dutch Kingdom. The reason for the seat on the island is the fact that the companies as providers of gambling on the Internet move in a legal gray area in most countries or even operate illegally.
Full Tilt Poker Offline – Customers Worry About Profits
After the site went offline, customer anxiety increased. What happens to the money earned on the virtual game accounts remains unclear. However, it is doubtful that the players will see the money again if the platform no longer goes online. The Alderney Gambling Control Commission now wants to check whether the site is operating within the framework of the applicable law on the island. The blocking of the website by the FBI in April probably gives reason for doubt .
Meeting between AGCC and Full Tilt Poker
Online gambling is illegal in the United States of America . In the Federal Republic of Germany , only the state is allowed to make money from gambling . This is secured by the State Treaty on Gambling. In April, the FBI blocked the online poker provider’s website . Charges included money laundering, illegal gambling and bank fraud. It didn’t last long though – Full Tilt Poker changed their country code and went back online with a server on Alderney.
How it will end this time is unclear. Due to the withdrawal of the license , no money may be accepted from customers, nor may winnings be paid out. The AGCC , the gambling regulator responsible for Alderney, has scheduled a meeting between the agency and the operators of Full Tilt Poker in London. This is scheduled to take place on July 28th and will be able to provide customers with clarity . Then it becomes clear whether the players will ever see the money again or not.
