Some online poker players are expecting a big payout soon, thanks to a multi-million dollar settlement between the Justice Department and two online poker companies. The companies were accused of running a Ponzi scheme.

We called up professional poker player Faraz Jaka to learn more about the settlement. He’s going to get a big payout: “I’ve had a decent amount locked up in there. I don’t want to say the exact amount, but it’s a six-figure amount.”

And you may recognize Jaka’s nickname… take a listen.
