Full Tilt cash in Manx accounts

American authorities say they may try to recover cash from Manx bank accounts held by owners and directors of Full Tilt Poker.

The Dublin-based e-gaming firm is facing an investigation in the US after federal prosecutors claimed it was little more than a giant Ponzi scheme.

The Department of Justice claims the company paid its directors more than $440 million out of players’ accounts and has charged 11 people with bank fraud, illegal gambling and money laundering.

According to investigators, some of those defendants put cash into accounts in Switzerland and the Isle of Man.
