DOJ seeks aid for potential victims of Full Tilt Poker

Aug 14, 2012 |
The United States Department of Justice is looking for help from a third-party payment processor to oversee the Full Tilt Poker remission process for American customers, according to a report on pokernews.com.

The government is seeking a "claims administrator" to help with the repayment of Full Tilt Poker players, according to an employment notice listed on the DOJ's website last week. The job description calls for the selected party to "design and execute a process to solicit, receive and evaluate claims, and to process payments, for losses incurred by U.S. victims."

The closing date for the posting is Aug. 31.

There is an estimated 1.3 million U.S. bettors with money stuck on non-operational Full Tilt, which was recently sold to PokerStars. American bettors with frozen funds will likely have to hold out until the position is filled before information regarding the remission process is released.
