Federal Government Approves Second Round of Absolute Poker/Ultimate Bet Payments

The Garden City Group updated the Absolute Poker remission page just a few days ago to reflect a recent decision by the United States Department of Justice. The federal government has decided to approve a second round of payments, so former members of Absolute Poker and UltimateBet with open claims should see payment soon.

With this round of payments, $3.7 million will be distributed among 4,600 petitioners via the Garden City Group. Back in August, 7,400 petitioners were provided remission payments totaling $33.5 million. For this next round of payments, United States petitioners will be provided payment via electronic ACH. Individuals based outside the US will receive a foreign currency check. If a foreign currency check cannot be issued, GCG will be sending payment via a foreign currency wire or USD check depending on location.

Over the new few weeks, the Garden City Group will be emailing notices to petitioners who have been approved for payment. The email will include the method of payment as well as amount to be sent. Emails will also be sent to petitioners who have been approved but were found to have delinquent debt that qualifies to be collected via the United States Treasury Offset Program. Such payments will be reduced so that the debt can be paid in its entirety or partially.

It was earlier this month that players first began reporting payments from the Garden City Group as the first round of payments were being sent to approved petitioners. When the first payments were made, the GCG announced that the deadline for applications had been reached but players still had the ability to file an application for remissions, but those applications would be reviewed at a later date.

The new update as well as additional information can be found at the site created by the Garden City Group, www.absolutepokerclaims.com.
