IMGC and PokerStars on Full Tilt bombshell

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jun 30, 2011 Posted in Poker Site News | No Comments »

PokerStars versus Full TiltIn the wake of the news that Full Tilt Poker had its license suspended by the Aldernay Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) PokerStars and its own regulatory body the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission (IMGC) worked quickly to assuage the fears of any PokerStars players by issuing the following official statements.

Statement from the IMGC:

“The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission wishes to make it clear that the licensing status of PokerStars in the Isle of Man remains unchanged following today’s statement from the Gambling Control Commission in Alderney. Alderney is a separate jurisdiction from the Isle of Man and the operation in question is separate from PokerStars,”

Statement from PokerStars:

“In light of today’s news that Alderney Gambling Control Commission has suspended Full Tilt Poker’s license, PokerStars wishes to assure our customers that their funds are completely safe and that our operations are completely unaffected,

“The Isle of Man Gaming Commission today re-affirmed that PokerStars’ worldwide licensing is intact and that our operations are in full compliance with all of its requirements. PokerStars’ online operations continue as normal and all funds in players’ accounts are safe and available for withdrawal as usual with no delays.”

Since Black Friday online poker players are finding it more, and more, difficult to find a place to play online poker, and even more worrying is the distinct chance that wherever you choose to play you might find that room shutdown at any moment… This is a very troubling time for online poker.
