Top-10 questions about PokerStars' acquisition of Full Tilt Poker

PokerStars settles dispute with U.S., acquires Full Tilt Poker assets
As part of a settlement agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, PokerStars has acquired the assets of Full Tilt Poker, and all Full Tilt players with balanced owed will have a chance to request payment.

Why are sites restricting U.S. play?

Many online gaming sites decided to stop accepting bets when the U.S. Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. Although the measure does nothing to change the players' right to bet online, it will eventually force American banks and credit card companies to block some types of electronic transactions to Internet gambling businesses. Other gaming sites stopped accepting U.S.-based bets in anticipation of the bill’s passage. And some never accepted U.S. bets because of the uncertain regulatory climate.

I have money in an account with one of these sites. Can I still get it out?
Each site is setting its own rules for withdrawing money. Please check with your casino to find out their policy. Some sites, like CelebPoker, have set a deadline for making withdrawals. Others, like PartyPoker, will allow all current U.S. account holders to log on and withdraw money. And some, like Betfred, may ask you to call a special phone number to make payment arrangements. Please check with the individual site to see what their policy is.

Below is a list of sites restricting U.S. play. To view specific restrictions, click on the site name.
