Full Tilt Completely Shut Down

Okay, I will begin by admitting that i don't play poker and don't much about the websites and what has happened with the FBI. I had thought back in April that the FullTilt poker site had been completeyl shut down but apparently not, at least not accoding to what I just read.

I now assume that just Americans were unable to play there when the Feds jumped in in April.

Well now the site has been completely shut down.

I guess whomever wrote the article that I read lives in the UK. He said his view of the site now shows something that says there is a system error message. But according to him the LA Times reported they saw a large banner on the site that says the blame is the US Department of Justice.

A statement from Alderney's Gambling Control Commission said four companies trading collectively as Full Tilt Poker have had their licences suspended. They may not register new customers, accept money from existing customers, allow customers to withdraw money or permit any poker to be played on the site.
What a bunch of poo! Let the people who enjoy poker to play. This is ridiculous already!

Re: Full Tilt Completely Shut Down

Your right it isn't right. I don't play poker online because I can't afford it. However I know a few people who did and loved it. They made some good money at the game.

I worry that soon all online gaming is going to be removed because one person or another in our government doesn't like it!!!

So much for the land of the free, huh??

You've got that right scoobygirl30. Our US freedoms are slowly diminishing each year right under our noses.

When have the people been able to vote on whether or not they can spend their money how they want to?

Oh, it's not being taxed by the US government so it's "illegal", I almost forgot about that part.

Re: Full Tilt Completely Shut Down

Ya know, I really enjoy bingo and sometimes I play on the internet. Now I am worried about them (the Feds) coming in and taking that away as well.

I feel that it is a good possiblity. I mean why not, bingo is a big industry as well as Poker and I think they took out poker because they want to run it themselves to get the most money from it that they can. I know they haven't said that but thats how I feel.

Our government has become very greedy and overbearing in many ways.

I'm not so sure that it is "for the people" anymore.

The worst part of all is that we have elected these goons. But they never show their true colors until it's too late. We may believe we are putting great people in office but all to often it doesn't end up being that way.

What do you guys think about bingo and what the future holds?
