The victims of “Black Friday” will return the money

In April 2011, the sites of the four largest poker rooms (PokerStars, FullTilt Poker, Absolute Poker and UltimateBet Poker) were blocked by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States, and players’ accounts were frozen indefinitely. The government accused operators of the illegal organization of online gambling and suspicion of fraud.

Six years have passed . The scandal went down in history under the name “Black Friday”, but still the injured players will get their lost money. In April this year, a payment plan was published for players who lost their bankrolls in the accounts of Absolute Poker / Ultimate Bet poker rooms.

The remission will include payments to approximately 7,400 applicants for a total of almost $ 33.5 million.
