Today, if you were to bet on the odds of Full Tilt Poker’s return you would end up losing! Even the bookies would tell FTP supporters that the odds are completely against Full Tilt’s return, especially after they have finally got into more trouble than they were already in.
Full Tilt Poker has its hands full with another class action suit to handle and several other questions to answer. This new lawsuit is in favor of the Canadian gamblers who were unable to play poker online at FTP since the Department of Justice froze the site in April; it had to be authorized by a Quebec judge for clearance.
The Full Tilt Poker company and its officials seem to be in a dilemma and have been cornered since their lawyers are now facing a class action suit filed by several parties to recover all the money that is seemingly being kept by Full Tilt Poker.
According to a report by the eGaming Review Magazine, the lawyers of Full Tilt Poker have filed a motion to withdraw from the suit. This has been done since the attorney of records with the US District Court for the Southern District of New York and the site’s lawyers believe that they will not be able to sustain the protracted lawsuits and will remain solvent.
Full Tilt Poker might want to promise people its return, but when they keep getting deeper into trouble with the federal authorities in the United States, it is hard to believe in them.
Soon after Full Tilt Poker was shut down and lost its license, the site has been facing problem after problem. Full Tilt Poker still awaits the judgment on the second hearing that is scheduled for 19th September 2011. The discussions that took place during the first hearing were inconclusive.
What is surprising, is that many other poker sites are holding player funds as well, although some have started giving them away. As of now, many US poker players are yet to be paid, but Full Tilt Poker is being targeted by players or customers because it is going down without a lifeline.
It might have something to do with the increasing number of faults that have come to light in the recent past and hence people are losing their patience and trust with the company. Orenstein, of Consumer Law Group, is the organization that filed the lawsuit with the Quebec Superior Court and one gambler has said that Full Tilt is still holding $250000 of his funds.
