On June 29th 2011, it was announced that Full Tilt had effectively lost their licence. The Alderney Gambling licence that Full Tilt Poker used to operate their poker room was suspended, with hearings scheduled for July 26th on the matter.
If you go to the Full Tilt Poker homepage at this time, you’ll see this message:
Which states that Full Tilt is currently down for maintenance.
I won’t speculate on what the future of Full Tilt Poker is at this time, but temporarily losing the license means:
- Players cannot login.
- Players cannot deposit or withdraw.
- New players cannot register.
- Players cannot play any poker games at Full Tilt Poker.
June 29th 1:49pm Update: I would expect Full Tilt to be back online within the next day or two. They still have their Kahnawake Gaming License, and it’s just a case of having to switch to their Canadian servers.
I’ll update this page whenever any news comes in, so keep it bookmarked.
However at this time, there really is nothing you can do about your Full Tilt account or existing funds. Moving countries won’t help; online petitions won’t help; no Full Tilt Poker pros are able to help.
The best thing you can do is sit tight, keep updated on the news, and hope for the best.

Additional What Happened to Full Tilt Poker Questions:
Is Full Tilt Closed for Good?
At this time, no. Unfortunately we have no way of knowing what will happen in the future, however money does talk, and I would be confident that Full Tilt would do everything they could to get back in business, so they can continue to cater to non-USA players. As late as 9pm EST on June 28th, I was able to make a $7,000 withdrawal from Full Tilt(via Click2Pay) that was processed immediately.
