Full Tilt Online Poker Renews License with Kahnawake Gaming Commission

Published Wednesday, August 03, 2011 - Online-Casinos.com

The Kahnawake Gaming Commission has decided to re establish the gaming license for supposedly defunct Full Tilt Poker.  The move has given rise to a group of disgruntled poker players who are still waiting to be reimbursed by Full Tilt Poker their account funds. The Kahnawake Gaming Commission has renewed Full Tilt Poker’s Secondary Client Provider Authorization license.

This action comes after the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, where it was ordered to "cease to register new customers, accept deposits from existing customers, allow existing customers to withdraw funds that are held in their accounts, and permit customers to participate in any form of poker game play or gambling transaction."
The seizing of the Full Tilt Poker website domain name as well as the funds associated with the site by the Department of Justice in the USA and the indictments of those involved in the processing of funds associated with the gambling operator has left thousands of players out of pocket.

The Full Tilt Poker has had a number of setbacks since the US Department of Justice as they have explained there were no mechanisms in place to return players funds as well as funds being frozen by the American justice system. A possible sale of Full Tilt Poker is being negotiated with a group of unidentified European investors but has not been completed as yet.
A statement issued by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission regarding the renewal of Full Tilt Poker's Secondary CPA license stated,
"To maintain a Secondary CPA, a licensee must maintain a valid license 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 concerning the egambling licenses held by Filco Limited, operating as Full Tilt Poker."
"The Alderney Gambling Control Commission has confirmed to the Commission that, although the egambling licenses held by Filco Limited are presently suspended pending the outcome of a hearing, these licenses are still considered to be valid."
