Feds restoring 2 poker domains to aid refunds
NEW YORK — Federal prosecutors say they expect Internet poker companies whose employees are being prosecuted to return money to players, and they're reactivating two domain names to make it easier for that to happen.
The government announced Wednesday that it has reached agreements with PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. It will restore the companies' domain names so they can return money to U.S. players.
The companies were named in a civil money laundering and forfeiture complaint last week.
Authorities have announced criminal charges against 11 individuals, including employees of those companies and one other.
So far, three of the 11 have been arrested. All are free on bail.
