Reuters: Full Tilt Poker, Pokerstars and Absolute Poker charged with illegal gambling

If you go to fulltiltpoker.com it will have an image saying the name was confiscated by the FBI. DNS propagation is still in progress so it might not show for you. But check the whois for pokerstars.com and fulltiltpoker.com and you will see both nameservers have been updated today and they are the same for both.

Have you looked at the whois for the domain names? All the name servers have been updated today and all are the same. It takes time for DNS propagation to take place.

Is this for real or just a sick joke? I am at work and can't visit the sites at the moment.

Def real and not a sick joke. When I go to fulltiltpoker.com, I get the exact same image as posted earlier in the thread.

OP is correct. Stars, Full Tilt, UB - all have been seized!

This is bad!
