HEADLINE: Full Tilt Poker Denies Claims Made by Rival

It was a heated tournament but not among the players, rather the sponsors.

It began with allegations lodged by through their PR agency that Full Tilt Poker had "breached online gambling laws", something Full Tilt and its legal counsel vehemently denied Thursday evening.

According to a representative of Codeworx to make the approved list for the Aussie Millions Tournament, there had to be absolutely no access to online gaming from the URL that is shown.

"According to the Fox Sports floor manager, these sites went through a stringent approval process and passed," the rep points out.

In his email to, the representative suggests that a "quick check shows that Full Tilt is in fact breeching the law".

He went on to point out that if you type in it takes you directly to their pay poker site.

"Not true!" says Full Tilt's legal counsel. He further goes on to state that under no circumstances is Full Tilt violating any policies.

A quick check from here shows that Full Tilt is in fact breeching the law.

"Full Tilt Poker.Net – a global company -- has reached various agreements with numerous United States as well as non-US business partners," their legal advisor, Ian J. Imrich, points out.

"Pursuant to and in accordance with the variety of agreements involved, my client’s dot net site, when accessed within the United States, does not link to any real money gaming site, including, but not limited to, This has been the state of affairs from commencement of applicable business relationships and is in full compliance with those agreements entered into between my client and those business partners within the United States which do require that such “dot net to dot com” linkage not occur.

"However, many of my client’s non-US business agreements do not have such a linkage prohibition nor requirement. For example, the Crown Casino strategic partnership does not require that Full Tilt Poker.Net have no links to Full Tilt Poker.Com.

"The Crown Casino (hosting Aussie Millions) is not subject to US law in this regard and my client’s agreements with the Crown Casino comply with applicable law in Australia.

"Based upon my inquiry thus far, my client is in full compliance with its respective legal obligations vis-à-vis the Crown Casino. Moreover, my client is in complete compliance with its respective strategic partnerships within and without the United States."
