Full Tilt Poker has said that one of its Irish bank accounts has been unfrozen following the indictment issued against the world’s second largest online poker room on April 15.  The US Justice Department has denied this claim, however. 

Full Tilt Poker later claimed this to be a corporate account from an Irish bank that acted on its own accord based on information contained within the indictments.

A company source had notified eGaming Review in regard to the Irish bank account being unfrozen.

“The bank was not one of those subject to the Department of Justice freezing order, but the DoJ did need to call the Bank of Ireland to get it unfrozen,” he explained.

“After Black Friday, the bank took it upon itself to freeze the account, and in order to convince them to reopen it we needed to go through the DoJ.”

The Department of Justice insisted that it would release a statement should any of the affected accounts be unfroze.
