Will Jetset Poker ever return?
No, at least not under the name Jetset Poker. If you were a fan of their software, it is currently in use at Cardroom.com. However we have heard of players having problems with Cardroom.com, and at this time cannot endorse or recommend it.
If you are looking for a poker room to play at, we recommend either Full Tilt Poker or Pokerstars. Both these rooms are trustworthy and secure, and are the two biggest online poker rooms. Their software is also incredible, and they offer a lot of features not available at any other poker rooms. For example, Full Tilt Poker has the infamous game Rush Poker, while Pokerstars has some amazing guaranteed tournaments and a variety of mixed games.
For more information on either of these poker rooms, read our Full Tilt Poker Review or our Pokerstars Review.
What Happened to Jetset Poker?
In short, Jetset Poker closed up shop, and ran off with hundreds of thousands of dollars of players money. When the UIEGA happened, many online poker rooms stopped take US customers. Jetset Poker continued to take US poker players for a period of time, as well as accepted deposits from poker players up until the very day that they closed. On October 13th 2006 at 11:55pm EST, players that were playing at Jetset Poker were informed via the chat that Jetset Poker would be “closing forever”, and that was that. Jetset Poker closed and ran off with all the money. A small amount of players actually got paid, but the majority of players did not receive any of their funds.
Jetset Poker filed for Bankruptcy in November 15th, 2007. You can read all the documentation about Jetset Pokers bankruptcy here: (http://www.cacb.uscourts.gov/cacb/Notices.nsf/New%20Notice%20of%20Sale%20of%20Estate%20Property/BCF300E4B072C168882573980057D95F/$FILE/LA-06-10031-EC.pdf)
