It’s Official: Full Tilt Poker Says “Full Tilt Poker is Here to Stay”

Referring to itself in third person, Full Tilt Poker has just informed its players that they are "here to stay" in spite of the prohibitionist new anti-gaming legislation some in Congress are trying to force upon the American public. Full Tilt’s release is one of the most definitive statements yet by a major online site.

To this we say, "Fuck yeah, Full Tilt Poker. Fuck yeah."

Read the release after the jump.

Full Tilt Poker is here to stay!

As an online poker player, you have probably heard about the new legislation passed by the U.S. Congress earlier this week that attempts to prevent you from being able to transfer money to online gaming sites.

While this new law has prompted some sites to announce plans to abandon the U.S. market in coming days, we assure you that Full Tilt Poker will continue to provide all of its players – both inside and outside of the United States – with a full complement of real money ring games and tournaments for their enjoyment.

After consultation with numerous legal experts in this field, we want to make you aware of the following:

* Legal

The new U.S. legislation does not in any way attempt to criminalize the act of you playing online poker. By playing online at Full Tilt Poker, you are not breaking any U.S. Federal laws.

* Full Access

The passage of the new Internet Gaming law will not have any impact on your day-to-day experience at Full Tilt Poker. We will provide all of our players, everywhere in the world, with full access to all of our games and tournaments.

* Easy Deposits and Withdrawals

We will continue to provide our players with all of the safe, secure and convenient methods for transferring money to and from the site. In fact, in recent discussions with our payment processors, we have been assured that this new law will have no immediate impact on their day-to-day business. And as always, any monies that you have on deposit with Full Tilt Poker remain completely safe and secure.

Furthermore, we firmly believe that online poker is not encompassed by this new legislation. In any event, we will continue to lobby for an express carve-out for online poker and for your right to play a truly American game from the privacy of your own home and computer.

We are excited about the future here at Full Tilt Poker and in the coming weeks and months, we plan to roll out many new features designed to enhance your online poker experience.

We appreciate your loyalty to our site and, in turn, want you to know that we will remain loyal to our valued players in the United States and throughout the world.

We look forward to seeing you at the table.

Sincerely,
Full Tilt Poker

    That is all fine and dandy, but can you address the fact that ISPs are encouraged and can be held liable for NOT BLOCKING access to your site, which makes your statement mute.

    I think the word you’re looking for is “moot.” Also, ISPs are not held liable for not blocking gambling sites. Whoever told you that is very misinformed. The only people this legislation effects are banks who MIGHT be held liable if they don’t block TRANSACTIONS to online gaming sites. And even then, if the bank so small that blocking the transactions would be a financial burden, they don’t have to.
