  • Gambling Jurisdictions Respond to Poker Indictments

    The designated authorities in gambling jurisdictions play a crucial, but often unseen, role in online gambling. They are the ones that issue licenses to the operators of online casinos and poker rooms after due diligence and therefore are the primary agencies that can assure that the players' interests are protected. All three indicted online poker rooms have been licensed from different jurisdictions. Now all three jurisdictional authorities have responded to the indictments in the US and online casino players would be interested in what they have said.

    Absolute Poker has been licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC). The KGC is the licensing authority in the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake, which is a sovereign jurisdiction located just outside Montreal in Canada. The KGC was established in 1996. The statement issued by the KGC states that its principal concern at the moment is to ensure that players are not adversely affected by the actions taken by US authorities. The KGC is discussing this matter with Absolute Poker and upon completion of its review it will determine what steps may be required. The KGC has indicated that it will issue a further statement once the review is complete.

    PokerStars is licensed by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission. The statement issued by the Commission first makes note of the events, confirms that it is discussing the issue with its licensee on an ongoing basis and is tracking the developments. The most important part of the statement is the confirmation that the licensing status in the Isle of Man of PokerStars remains unchanged. The statement also adds that the Commission is endeavoring to ensure that any player who wishes to withdraw money from their account can do so.

    Full Tilt Poker is licensed by the Alderney Gaming Control Commission (AGCC). The statement from the AGCC is the most comprehensive. AGCC has stated that it will review the documentation affecting its licensee and will "undertake its own investigation into these allegations". AGCC stated that it would not make any ongoing statements till its own enquiries are completed. The most significant part of the AGGC statement is the acknowledgement that Full Tilt Poker has denied all of the allegations. The statement further reveals that upon the grant of its license Full Tilt Poker had obtained specific legal advice relating to its proposed activities. AGCC has also expressed concern that the seizure of Full Tilt Poker's American domain name is hampering and potentially adversely affecting its lawful operation elsewhere in the world. The statement affirms, "AGCC remains committed to providing a well regulated lawful environment for worldwide eGambling based in Alderney." 우리카지노 계열 대한민국 최고의 카지노사이트
