The following email has been sent out to players on Pokerstars. It looks like cashouts are not as far away as US Players may have feared. We will pass word along when Full Tilt Poker has a similar update.

Dear VIP player,

PokerStars is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with the US Department of Justice that will allow US residents with funds in their PokerStars accounts to cash out without DoJ interference. Cashouts can begin as soon as PokerStars finds a suitable payment processor, likely within several weeks.

This rapid agreement is the direct result of PokerStars making it the #1 company priority to return account balances to US residents as quickly as possible.

US residents are still welcome to play upcoming PokerStars-sponsored live events such as EPT San Remo and EPT Grand Final in Madrid. Tournament packages and buy-ins won or otherwise earned on PokerStars will be honored. If you would like to register for these events using funds from your PokerStars account, please email

More information of interest to US residents is available on a special Frequently Asked Questions webpage located at:

This page will be updated as more information becomes available.

Please note that the PokerStars website has moved to and the primary support email address has changed to The website and email addresses are gradually being restored, but it’s best to use these addresses for now to be sure your communication gets through.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as PokerStars works to make your funds available for cashout as quickly as possible after recent unexpected events.
