Thursday, June 30th, 2011
Full Tilt Can't Connect MARCH 2012 update - Pokerstars have just released a new beta game very similar to Rush Poker (yay) - check out our Pokerstars Zoom Poker blog for latest info. For a 2nd evening Full Tilt is closed and rumours are rife as to what could be going on. The simple facts are that Full Tilt have lost their gambling licence with the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) and were told to cease trading yesterday (June 29th). Players can't connect to Full Tilt software and are faced with a simple 'trying again' message, when visiting the website it states "System Update. We apologise but the system is down. Please check back later." How much later? When will they be open again? How can they just be shut down like that? How can I get my bankroll back? Have Full Tilt released any info at all? Where else can I play Rush Poker? These are all questions we've been asked over the last 24hours and this blog will attempt to answer them for you.
