A group for consumer interests in Canada has filed a class action lawsuit against Full Tilt Poker. The motion was filed in Quebec Superior court to reclaim funds that were lost by Full Tilt customers that are no longer able to access their accounts.

Canadian Poker Players vs. Full Tilt Poker

The money that was frozen by Full Tilt Poker is being deemed as an illegal seizure of funds for those belonging to the class action. Canadian customers of Full Tilt have not been able to access their funds since the suspension of the company’s license as a result of the Black Friday US action against the company.

It is believed, as stated by the class action, that Full Tilt is holding $150 million of Canadian customer’s money. Individual funds within accounts range from only a few dollars to the high dollar amounts of a quarter of a million dollars.

Canadian Poker Players

Canadian players were permitted to play on Full Tilt up until June 29th. The Alderney gaming commission suspended Full Tilt’s license and the company locked out Canadian players from their accounts. If this class action is successful it may set a precedent so that US funds could be the subject of another class action.
