Online poker players with funds on deposit with PokerStars, the world’s largest online poker company, can expect to receive their money soon, according to an announcement by the company.

PokerStars, indicted with two other online poker companies on charges of bank fraud and money laundering, said it worked out a deal with the Justice Department whereby bank arrangements for the repayments can go forward.

There was no such announcement from either FullTilt or Absolute, the two other poker companies under indictment. In fact, a report out of the United Kingdom indicated FullTilt might be having cash-flow problems.

PokerStars advised their customers that player money was safe and had been kept in separate accounts from those used for company operations.
