Full Tilt Poker have secured a license for its Kolyma company in Kahnawake despite having their licenses suspended in Alderney and France.
The Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC as they are known) did say though they are “closely monitoring the proceedings being conducted by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC)”. They also said that their license renewal would last for a further 2 years.
As stated under the terms of Kahnawake regulations, “all Client Provider Authorizations issued by the Commission must be appended to a valid Interactive Gaming License” and are “only valid and enforceable for so long as the Interactive Gaming License to which it is appended is in good standing”. It is believed that Full Tilt Poker applied for this secondary license prior to the ruling.
The regulations stipulate that if the primary license is “suspended, revoked or allowed to lapse”, the operator of a Secondary Client Provider Authorization must apply for a Client Provider Authorization license within 30 days. If not, the Secondary license may be suspended or revoked.
The Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) commented to Kahnawake Gaming Commission that the license is presently suspended but under terms in Kahnawake, their license is “considered to be valid” still.
This is good news for Full Tilt Poker after having their French license revoked and losing players to Poker Stars. To read more about their Alderney licensed being suspended, click here.
