I just noticed on Alderneys GamblingControl.org website, a new statement was issued on July 4, 2011. This statement is very brief, but is clear:
Alderney Gambling Control Commission is in discussions to re-open Full Tilt Poker to it’s current and new customers.
It states that the AGCC is in talks (at the early stages) with the Full Tilt Poker licensee and a third party about the re-financing of FullTiltPoker. To me this says that if the new Full Tilt investors pay off the money owed to players, they will re-instate the Alderney Full Tilt Poker License and Full Tilt Poker can open their poker room again..
Copy of the Official Statement:
Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) is in discussions, all be at an early stage, with its licensees trading as Full Tilt Poker and a third party concerning the prospective refinancing of Full Tilt Poker.
The objective of these discussions is to enable the site to re-open to its current and prospective players.
Contrary to current reports circulating in the media, AGCC has not authorised any statement by legal counsel in this regard and has no knowledge of the comments attributed by the editor of Gambling City.net to a Mr. Werner Bers, of whom we are otherwise unaware, and disputes the correctness of his statement.
All and any further authorised announcements on this matter will be found on the website of AGCC at www.gamblingcontrol.org
Correspondence may be conducted via firstname.lastname@example.org
