With the endless talk and conjecture surrounding Full Tilt Poker’s inability to pay U.S. players who are wishing to cash out, there’s been one item that has been virtually ignored throughout the coverage, affiliates.
While there’s still no reports of Full Tilt Poker paying out any of the money owed to U.S. based players, affiliate or not, there was an interesting development reported by eGaming Review Monday. According to their site, a U.S. based affiliate has received e-mail correspondence from Full Tilt Poker last Friday stating that his account has been credited with the funds he was owed by the company for the month of April.
There’s not much more information than that, and it should be noted that having an affiliate account credited with funds is not the same as a cashout. Cashing out affiliate funds is a process similar to cashing out regular funds on Full Tilt Poker, and there’s no report of either happening as of yet. It appears that Full Tilt Poker may be making progress on paying out its U.S. players, but it’s looking like making good with affiliates who are owed money may have a higher priority.
The question that needs to be asked at some point in time is whether or not Full Tilt Poker will be a player in the post-apocalyptic world of online poker that U.S. players will be faced with once the game becomes legalized and regulated.
The future of online poker in the United States is a story that’s changing on what seems like a daily basis. We here on the Rakeback.com News Team will be here to keep you apprised of any and all developments as they happen.
