Alderney Won’t Comment on Full Tilt Poker Keeping License
The Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) has remained tight lipped as to whether the world's second largest online poker company, Full Tilt Poker, will be able to maintain its operations license.
The federal government had frozen more than $30 million in the accounts of payment processors that handle the winnings of thousands of online poker players, including Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars.
Documents obtained by the AP show that a magistrate judge in the district issued a seizure warrant last week for an account at a Wells Fargo bank in San Francisco, and that a federal prosecutor told Alliance Bank to freeze accounts. Warning letters were also sent to other banking institutions via a federal prosecutor implying the funds were being used for "money laundering transactions".
eGaming Review asked the AGCC whether it can guarantee Full Tilt's license if it was found to have contravened US law. AGCC chief executive André Wilsenach would not comment.
Wilsenach said: "As a matter of principle we don't comment publicly on the business of our licensees or their associated parties".
