The Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC), noted for their apparently non-existent standards on granting gaming licenses, announced last week that they renewed Full Tilt Poker’s Secondary Client Provider Authorization. Full Tilt had their primary license suspended on June 29th by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) and has been closed for business ever since.
The KGC requires all applicants for a secondary license to have a primary license in another jurisdiction in good standing. While AGCC has suspended Full Tilt’s primary license, it is still considered a valid license. There is no indication that Full Tilt plans to re-open and operate under their secondary license from KGC. The beleaguered site is currently awaiting a hearing with AGCC regarding the status of their license. The hearing will take place sometime between now and September 15th. Last Tuesday, AGCC adjourned their hearing with Full Tilt to grant the site’s request for more time to work out a deal with investors.
Kahnawake has granted UB and Absolute Poker their principal license for years and continues to license them to this day.
