Alderney Revokes Full Tilt Poker License

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission as expected as revoked the license for Full Tilt Poker.

The AGCC had yanked the license on June 29 after Full Tilt Poker failed to pay its US customers following indictments against two executives by the US Justice Department.  They were charged with money laundering and bank fraud.

Since that time Full Tilt Poker has failed to pay players across the world including Europe. 

Last week, the US Justice Department added poker pros and stakeholders Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer to a civil complaint alleging they were part of a massive ponzi scheme.

A lawyer for Full Tilt Poker has claimed investors were interested in purchasing the beleaguered company, however, nothing has come to fruition.
