Garden City Group Finally Announce Date When Refunds Will Be Paid To Full Tilt Poker Customers

Written By: Maya Michaels | August 22, 2013 | Posted In Poker News

Last month we brought you the news that The Garden City Group (GCP), the company that were put in place by the Department of Justice to distribute an estimated $184million of money from the poker site Full Tilt Poker back to it’s customers, had no plans to start the repayment process for at least another year. Now they have issued an official statement stating the process will start in three weeks time on 16th September.

On 23rd July an unnamed source from GCG said, “The process will most likely take longer than a year, probably longer. There are no dates set in stone as of yet. We haven’t even begun the claims process.” That statement would have not gone down well with players from Full Tilt Poker, many of whom have six figure sums owing to them, and in some cases seven figure sums.

The latest statement from GCG, which was posted on FullTiltPokerClaims.com, will no doubt leave players feeling invigorated and hoping that there is finally light at the end of a very dark tunnel. The statement reads, “Starting on September 16, 2013, GCG will email a notice with instructions on how to submit a Petition for Remission online to all potentially eligible claimants identified by GCG utilizing data supplied by Full Tilt Poker (“FTP”). The deadline to submit a Petition for Remission is November 15, 2013. Instructions concerning the filing of Petitions will be included in the notice and will be posted on this website. Please continue to check this website for updates. Please note that the registration process for email notification is no longer available.”

Back Friday struck some 28 months ago and it will be 29 by the time the claims process finally gets under way. The affected players will just be glad to receive their monies back, though at the time of writing it is still unclear if players will receive a full refund or one that is based on a pro rata basis.
