Friday July 1,2011 : Move follows suspension of licence by Alderney Gaming Control Commission
Full Tilt Poker's troubles appear to be mounting following the suspension of its licence earlier this week by the Alderney Gaming Control Commission (see previous InfoPowa report).
On Thursday the Kahnwake Gaming Commission, with which Full Tilt associate Kolyma Corporation AVV holds a secondary licence, issued an advisory notice informing interested parties that it has commenced a review of the facility.
The KGC 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."
News of the review could assist in settling persistent rumours on the Internet that the Alderney suspension would simply motivate Full Tilt to switch jurisdictions to Kahnawake.
