AGCC Revocation Further Exposes Full Tilt's Crooked Policies

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission earlier today announced that they are revoking the online eGaming licenses of Full Tilt Poker, a move that came as little surprise to anyone that looked at the situation realistically. What did surprise me is the fact that Full Tilt seemed to lay down and gave up when it came to the hearing.   Per the AGCC's press release and Determination Notice, once Full Tilt's motion to delay the hearing further was denied, they pretty much packed up their ball and went home.

I said weeks ago that if the Alderney Gambling Control Commission was to reinstate Full Tilt’s license that they would need to show that they are making significant process towards paying US players back. Guess what? That hasn’t happened. Oh, guess what else? The trial was adjourned until the middle of September.
