US based players who have waited for more than two years to get money owed to them by poker giant Full Tilt Poker will finally get reprieve, as the independent administrator tasked with handling the payments announced it will begin payouts next week.
Administrator Garden City Group announced that it will begin handling the repayment process on September 16th. Players can officially request repayment by submitting a Petition for Remission through the website FullTiltPokerClaims.com.
Garden City Group was given the contract to facilitate payments by the US Department of Justice, who settled the case with Rational Group, who in turn acquired Full Tilt.
Claims for refunds will be taken for two months and will then begin to be disbursed.
The move comes after lengthy delays by the administrator, who has struggled with getting the infrastructure for the payments figured out. European players owed money by the group were paid out months ago, and Full Tilt has resumed operations in legal online poker markets.
