    You can't do anything really...no one regulates off-shore gambling businesses.

    Hi Sheppy, Sorry to hear of your misfortune on Full Tilt Poker. You ask if they can just keep your winnings and the answer is no, they can not.

    You have options but you are going to have to jump throught some hoops to get it.

    Basically, Full Tilt Poker is conducting an investigation to determine if you are cheating. This investigation can take an indiscriminate amount of time and leave you in the dark (as you see).

    You are bound by the End Users Licensing Agreement (EULA) (Part of the fulltiltpoker Software) and the site Terms of Use.

    "Terms of use

    10.In the event that Full Tilt Poker deems that a player has engaged in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity while playing...

    ...Full Tilt Poker shall be entitled to take such action as it sees fit, including immediately blocking access to our games and tournaments, terminating the player’s Full Tilt Poker account, seizing all monies held in the relevant Full Tilt Poker "real money account", ..."

    Seizing players monies becomes questionable when there is no accountability or disclosure of where the money goes after it's seized, and no due process in the court. It is likely profitable for FTP to use any excuse to seize players accounts.

    Fortunately the EULA provides that disputes are resolved ONLY by the Laws of Alderney, a small country off the coast of England. Full Tilt Poker is licensed by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
    You may file your claim with the Commission at:

    http://www.gamblingcontrol.org/questions8.php

    Read through the procedure and then send an Email explainig the circumstances to the Office Administrator at:

    info@agcc.gg

    Or, you may phone them at:

    +44(0)1481 825500

    Hope this is helpful and Good Luck

    I've done some investigating and seen where several people here in the States have filed complaints with the Federal Trade Commission. I don't know if it will get your winnings, but it may prompt an investigation into Full Tilt Poker. Who knows, someday they may lose a Class Action Lawsuit and you will be eligible for a piece of that pie. ☺

    Its amazing how so many problems occurr with this site. I am sure that complex algorithms are written so that Full Tilt benefits from every possible angle. We dont know how many full tilt bots exist.. Especially in toucnaments happening daily whether these bots are actually full tilt bots.

    Money is for Nothing--even though the chicks are free-s didn't mean your sister-but then again money is the root of all evil-nothing related to your sister I hope
