The Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC) has approved Full Tilt’s application to renew the secondary licence which it holds in the territory after receiving confirmation from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission that it considers Full Tilt’s primary licence to still be valid.
The Kahnawake regulator had launched a review of Full Tilt’s Secondary Client Provider Authorization (SCPA) in late June after Alderney’s decision to suspend the company’s primary licence. Under Kahnawake regulations, the SCPA is only available to operators holding a valid licence issued by a primary jurisdiction.
The KGC said that it has received confirmation from the Alderney regulator that although Full Tilt’s primary licence is presently suspended pending the outcome of a hearing scheduled to take place before September 15th, “these licences are still considered to be valid”. Accordingly, the KGC has granted Kolyma Corporation A.V.V., operating as Full Tilt Poker, a renewal of its SCPA for a term of two years ending August 1st 2013.
The regulator added that Full Tilt is not currently offering gaming to the public from servers that are located within Kahnawake or under the Commission’s supervision and said that it is “closely monitoring the proceedings being conducted by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission”.
