"We have reached a settlement of the civil charges filed against us by the U.S. Department of Justice related to our former business offering real-money online poker. As part of the settlement agreement, PokerStars has also acquired the assets of Full Tilt Poker, and we have committed to the full reimbursement of Full Tilt Poker customers outside the United States."
"The total amount to be paid by PokerStars is us$ 547 million which will be payable over a period of three years. The money paid to the US Government will in part be used to reimburse former Full Tilt Poker customers in the United States, through a remission process to be administered by the Department of Justice. PokerStars repaid all amounts owing to its own U.S. customers shortly after it closed its U.S. operations in April 2011."
"We fully expect to participate in a future regulated US market. Just what form that will take (state-by-state or federal regulation) remains to be seen. We’ll certainly watch the developments closely and make decisions based upon the circumstances. We are the leading online poker site and licensed in more countries than anyone in the industry. We bring tremendous value, credibility and integrity to the marketplace. With our US legal issues now resolved, we are a very qualified candidate for a license."
