Lee Jones (Poker Stars) initial notes regarding UIGA
Hi folks -
Obviously, there are many unanswered questions at this point - we'll let you know more as time progresses.
However, there are three important things that we can tell you right now:
1. Your money is completely safe at PokerStars. It's kept in a segregated account at one of the largest banks in Europe.
2. You do, and will, have 24/7 access to your account funds. You will always be able to get to your money.
3. We have not made a decision one way or another as regards closing our American accounts.
The other thing that I can promise is that we'll keep the lines of communication open to forums such as these. Stay tuned.
