DoJ Finally Appoints Claims Administrator for Full Tilt U.S. Victims Funds


DOJ---FulltiltPokerThe United States Department of Justice has finally appointed a claims administrator to oversee the return of U.S. player funds from the old Full Tilt Poker to “eligible victims”. The company that will handle the claims is Garden City Group, a well known claims administration firm with vast experience handling legal claims.

Approximately $150 million is expected to get repaid to victims. The money comes from the PokerStars civil settlement case with the DoJ amounting to $547 million not including the funds and non U.S. players have already been paid by PokerStars themselves via the reopening of Full Tilt.

A website has been set up by Garden City Group to handle the claims and can be found at It will be possible to file claims electronically via the web site/.

The petitions for remission process will begin shortly and victims can sign up to a mailing list to keep up to date with developments. To date, no time frame has been given indicating when the claims process will begin but there is a hotline number the victims can use for further questions.

“The Garden City Group brings a track record of handling the administration of some of the country’s largest and most complicated settlements,” U.S. District Attorney Preet Bharara, is quoted as saying.

“With their selection, we take a significant step forward in the process of compensating victims of the Full Tilt Poker scheme.”
