French online poker regulator ARJEL has announced that 90% of the money owed to native Full Tilt players has been refunded.
Unlike other European countries that were able to resume their Full Tilt grind when the site reopened, French players were left in the cold due to the Rational Group's decision not to offer games in regulated markets.Along with Italy, this meant that players could only request their bankrolls from the site, much like players from the US. However, while American players are still waiting for their remission process to begin, almost all of the affected French players have been paid back.Indeed, according to ARJEL’s announcement, €4.1 million of the outstanding €4.9 million has been formally processed back to players, mostly through site-to-site transfers between Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars.In addition to the update on the redistribution of funds, ARJEL also formally revoked Full Tilt’s French licence. Having originally suspended it back in 2011, after their primary Alderney licence was suspended, the French authority has now completely taken away Full Tilt’s legal status in the country.
