Kahnawake Tries To Pressure Blanca Games

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

The Kahnwake Gaming Commission is applying pressure to Blanca Games, trying to get player funds reimbursed in an agreement with the United States.

The action came in an advisory notice by the KGC, which has been working with the company that owns Absolute Poker, Cerus Poker Network and UBPoker to come to a settlement which would see company assets distributed to players.

The notice reads:

"Over the past several weeks, we were advised of a potential solution prepared by Blanca and its representatives, establishing a process to liquidate Blanca’s assets and distribute proceeds to players. We understand that this process has been presented to the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York for consideration and approval."

"The Commission’s foremost concern in this matter has been, and remains, the reimbursement of both US and non-US players, as quickly and completely as possible."

"To avoid further prejudice to affected players, the Commission has demanded that all parties complete their discussions and implement a reimbursement solution without further delay."
