April 15, 2017 was the sixth anniversary of “Black Friday”. Five days earlier, former Absolute Poker players received notices to their e-mails from the US Department of Justice, which announced the launch of a process for applying for refunds to affected Absolute Poker victims.
The players will be compensated by the company Garden City Group, which previously participated in the payment to players of Full Tilt poker. Players will be compensated based on the last saved data. Players can start filing their claims on the special website AbsolutePokerClaims.
According to the press release of the US Department of Justice, if the confiscated funds cover all confirmed requests, Absolute Poker users will receive their money in full. If the requested funds will be more than there are in the fund, the money will be distributed proportionally.
