The U.S. government appointed firm that is overseeing the repayment of money owed to Full Tilt Poker players, the Garden City Group (GCG), posted a new announcement on its website in regards to the remission process. A February 13th update stated that the GCG is preparing payments for those account holders who confirmed their FTP Account Balance in a timely manner.

“Beginning on Feb. 13, such Petitioners may notice a zero-dollar transaction in their bank account statement that relates to the Full Tilt Poker Claims Administration,” the update said. “Please be aware that this is a normal part of the bank testing process in preparation for payment of ACHs. However, not all banks post these notices during the testing process, so do not be concerned if you do not receive such a notice and believe you are eligible to receive payment in the upcoming initial distribution.”

An announcement arrived in January from the GCG stating that approximately $82 million was expected to be return by the end of March to Full Tilt Poker petitioners. Any U.S. player that has funds held in Full Tilt Poker since the Black Friday execution of online poker, must submit a petition by March 2nd, 2014.
