Full Tilt Poker Claims Administration

This is the official website for the Full Tilt Poker Claims Administration, as authorized by the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. This administration is the result of the settlement agreement and resulting forfeitures resolving the allegations in the amended civil forfeiture complaint in United States v. PokerStars, et al., 11 Civ. 2564 (LBS), pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The Garden City Group, Inc. ("GCG") was retained by the United States to serve as the Claims Administrator of the forfeited funds.


GCG has been informed that the Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section has approved a new round of payments, which will include payments to Petitioners who confirmed their FTP Account Balances, Petitioners who have disputed their FTP Account Balances and Petitioners designated by Full Tilt as “Professionals.” In all, the distribution will include approximately 1,900 Petitions totaling approximately $5.5 million. After this round of payments, we will have paid approximately 92% of all Petitions filed.

GCG continues to work with the Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) to evaluate the balance of the Petitions that have been filed. Petitions that are found to be valid will be paid in upcoming distributions. For further information regarding the payment process and bank testing, please see the March 16, 2015 notice, which can be found on the Previous Updates tab.

Please note that GCG continues to send emails notifying Petitioners of deficiencies in their Petitions, including Petitioners who did not provide required documentation or provided insufficient documentation in support of their Petitions, including certain Petitioners who have disputed their FTP Account Balance. Please note that responses will be required within 20 days of the date of the email. Please be sure to check your email account's spam or junk folder to ensure the message was not filtered.
