KGC renews Full Tilt Poker secondary license

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Aug 03, 2011 Posted in Legal Poker News, Poker Industry News | No Comments »

Despite the fact that Full Tilt Poker has not accepted deposits or withdrawals for over a month, or even games for that matter, the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC) has decided to renew the troubled site’s secondary gaming license –which shouldn’t be too surprising considering the KGC licensed UB and Absolute Poker after their internal cheating scandals.

According to the KGC:

“To maintain a Secondary CPA, a licensee must maintain a valid licence to operate interactive gaming that has been issued by a comparable jurisdiction (the “primary jurisdiction”). Accordingly, the Commission is closely monitoring the proceedings being conducted by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (the “AGCC”) concerning the eGambling Licences held by Filco Limited, operating as “Full Tilt Poker.” The AGCC has confirmed to the Commission that, although the eGambling Licences held by Filco Limited are presently suspended pending the outcome of a hearing, these licences are still considered to be valid.”

So even though their primary license is suspended, it hasn’t been revoked at this time, so the KGC simply rubber-stamped Full Tilt Poker’s secondary license renewal form. The KGC has never suffered from an abundance of credibility after its wishy-washy investigation into the Super-User scandals and subsequent licensing of the offending sites, but licensing a site that has failed to process a single US withdrawal since April, hasn’t offered a game since June 29th, and has been shut-down by their primary licensor, is almost just as incredulous.
