Kahnawake Now Investigating Full Tilt Poker

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

The water keeps getting hotter for Full Tilt Poker. Following the suspension of their gaming license by regulators in Alderney, the Kahnawake Gaming Commission issued an advisory notice and announced that it had begun reviewing the secondary license of Kolyma Corporation AVV, an associate of Full Tilt Poker.

The notice reads:

"Since July, 2010, Kolyma Corporation A.V.V. (“Kolyma”), carrying on business as Full Tilt Poker, has held a Secondary Client Provider Authorization, issued by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (the “KGC”).

"The KGC issues a Secondary CPA only in cases where an operator holds a valid license issued by a primary jurisdiction and has its head office and focus of operations in that primary jurisdiction.

"The KGC is aware that the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (“AGCC”), has recently issued Suspension Notices against several companies collectively operating as Full Tilt Poker.

"In view of these recent actions, the KGC is reviewing all available information to determine whether the Secondary CPA presently held by Kolyma will be continued. A further announcement will be made shortly."

Full Tilt Poker, once one of the largest online poker rooms in the world, had its .com domain seized by the U.S. government in April followed by the suspension of its license in June by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. It is unknown what plans the company has to respond to the reviews but it certainly appears that the poker room's days could be numbered.
