PokerStars didn't admit to doing anything wrong. While it isn't allowed to have a division in the U.S. for now, the settlement will allow it "to apply to relevant U.S. gaming authorities, under both PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker brands, to offer real money online poker when State or Federal governments introduce a framework to regulate such activity," the company said.

I copied the above paragraph out of the PR. Are we closer to legalized online gaming than I think we are? I would've thought that we were years away, but the above seems to indicate something more imminent?

Yeah you can eat sometime within 3 years. The 547 Million is to be paid out during that time period.

Sigh. Back to ramen and peanut butter sandwiches.

Nevada is a few months away from approving an in-state system, and has already started accepting deposits and applications from providers. A large cadre of California cardrooms are organized as well, but the state legislature is way behind Nevada.

The Nevada system is supposed to be limited to in-state players. I expect that the backers assume regional, national, and international approval will eventually follow.

I imagine online poker will be legalized as soon as LVS, CZR, MGM say they have their systems up and running.

Bump. If you are a US player and had money in a Full Tilt account, you should have got an email detailing how to claim your money. You only have until Nov. 16th, 2013 to claim it, or you forfeit it. I have ~$125 there, not sure if I will bother...meh

Also check your spam folder, that's where my claim instructions went...grrr

Thanks for posting this. I also only had around $150 on the site, and I went through the process and it asks for SSN as part of the claims process. Any idea whyit needs this information and/or if we should provide that info?

Thanks again for the heads up.
