PokerStars Cashouts Hit U.S. Banks, Full Tilt Poker Next???
By Scott Carlson, Rakeback.com Poker News Senior Writer
It was just last Tuesday afternoon when PokerStars announced that cashouts for U.S. customers were available. Players who used the ‘Direct Transfer to Bank’ option started seeing their deposits hit the bank on Friday (including this writer).
Full Tilt Poker issued a FAQ to U.S customers on Friday indicating they would have an update in the upcoming week on player cashouts. There have been multiple unconfirmed rumors (although they have been from fairly reliable sources) that cashouts will be available within the week.
A couple of the sticking points that have caused the delays for Full Tilt include a number of accounts that were frozen by the DOJ and funds that were sitting with payment processors that may or may not have made it to customers before the seizure. Rakeback payments and bonuses (including Take 2) were to be paid out before cashouts were turned on as well.
Look at your Full Tilt cashier and if you see these amounts added to your account you can be pretty sure that cashouts will happen soon after.
