DoJ announces FTP remissions claims administrator

Hopefully everyone has kept good records so they can provide the necessary paperwork to the payment administrator. I remember reading right after Black Friday - maybe it was on this board - that FTP players should take a screen shot of their account info so they would have proof of their balance.

Glad I did that.

Just out of curiousity, how do you find out how much you had on there? I admit I wasn't paying attention back when FT went away, I didn't have a massive amount on there by any means, if I recall it was ~$300. Is there a way to locate the amount on the new FT?

Do any USA players that recently logged into the fulltilt have a real money balance that says anything besides zero? I logged in and opened the cashier window for the first time in a couple years and it doesn't have my old real money balance, but it has the same amount of play money and fulltilt points from Black Friday.

It's that way for all US players.

I signed up as well but will still be quite a while before we get our money I believe. At least this is a step in the right direction!!!

You can't enter a claims request yet. What you did was request that the send you information when they determine how to submit a claims request. Basically you signed up for more info when it becomes available.

No. This IS the DoJ handling the money. If he wants his money he'll have to deal with them. There will be no other way.

My money still at pokerstars though. A wonder what that's about. They cleaned out are counts at fulltilt, but left them alone at pokerstars.

You were supposed to cash out at Stars years ago (a few months after BF). They sent checks very quickly.

The government got a finger in the pie and had no clue how to get it out without giving us all cooties......

If I understand correctly, they are still collecting money from the various "playahs", the last settlement was only recently reached.

I only had $40 there. I'm giving serious thought to not reporting my information at all. Maybe I don't want the gvt knowing I played poker LOL

For those of you looking to get a balance from FTP (so you know how much you had on there), I posted the method here: https://www.cardschat.com/forum/pok...p-account-first-time-224981/post-2111390.html

I wish they had just let poker stars pay the players when then bought up Full Tilt, like Poker Stars did for their own players. The money was paid out extremely quickly and directly to my checking account with no problem. The fact that this is so complicated and is taking so long makes me feel like I won't be getting the full amount I had when the site shut down.
