PokerStars and Full Tilt have spoken out in an answer to the United States government's raid on their companies. No statements in response have been issued by the gaming companies UB.com and Absolute Poker however.  

 

PokerStars said to its customers when the US government decided to get rid of real money gaming that they had decided to outsource real money gaming services as they were now illegal in the U.S. There would be no need and no actions would be taken to close down the PokerStars website as gambling is still legal in other countries where the domain can be placed. Therefore, no customers outside of the USA had to worry about their favorite online poker site disappearing.   

 

As mentioned, the PokerStars website was moved to a domain outside of the USA and the website address changed to Pokerstars.eu in order to avoid trouble.

 

Full Tilt did not follow PokerStars' example when making their announcement. Instead, the company's spokespeople decided to stand behind its managers: Raymond Bitar (CEO) and Nelson Burtnick. Therefore, their statement lacked any mention of the situation in the U.S. in which real money games in the casino industry are considered illegal.

 

Full Tilt Poker continued its statement by clarifying that millions of American and other countries' citizens enjoy playing poker, which is a game both of luck and skill. Full Tilt Poker guaranteed that they would not create problems for those players wishing to use their internet gambling services.  


Full Tilt's CEO, Mr. Bitar, made sure to point out that Full Tilt Poker obviously is a law abiding company but still argued that poker online should definitely be legal.


Furthermore, Bitar said that he was upset, to say the least, about the fact that the U.S. state had banned real money games and concluded by stating that Mr. Burtnick was in full agreement with him.
