On Friday 15th April 2011, news was released about an indictment against the founders of 3 of the top poker rooms. News releases indicates that Pokerstars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker have had been indicted on charges of Bank Fraud, Money Laundering and illegal gambling. In addition the Department of Justice has arraigned 11 key members of the poker industry and have froze more than 75 bank accounts, in essence taking control of billions of dollars.
Things have been progressing fairly fast with arrests already having taken place of the poker site owners and the F.B.I have seized a number of .com domain names belonging to the three poker sites.
All three sites are open for business to non US players. Pokerstars has recently shifted to a .eu domain as their .com domain is one of the five that has been seized.
