Full Tilt Remission Claims Open Monday
The Garden City Group will open remission applications on Monday at Fulltiltpokerclaims.com. US players that are owed money by Full Tilt Poker can make claims for 60 days. Instructions will be provided on the website and by email to registered claimants.
News also broke this week that some former players owed money may not qualify to make a claim. This may include past owners, red pros, affiliates and vendors. This should not affect most players.
Juicy Stakes Restricts New Nevada Players and Deposits
Juicy Stakes, a member of the Revolution Gaming Network, has stopped accepting new players from Nevada. It has also stopped accepting deposits from existing players in the Silver State. Juicy Stakes has struggled with player cashouts for years and is currently taking 6-10 months to process withdrawals to US players. Lock Poker, the only other Revolution Gaming skin that accepts players from the US, still accepts players from Nevada. Safest Poker Sites does not recommend either site.
New Winning Poker Features
The Winning Poker Network rolled out some new features in a software release earlier this week. The update included on demand tournaments that can be best described as a sit and go with late registration. Other features include the ability to see folded cards by hovering over the player’s username. Straddles were added, as well as some tournament and lobby features.
