After all of the trouble that Full Tilt Poker has been in these past months, it was uncertain whether or not the online poker website would ever operate again. Now, the the future seems to be a little bit brighter for Full Tilt Poker and its owners, as the Kahnawake Gaming Commission in Canada has granted the website an online gaming license.
It has just been announced that the KGC , based in Quebec, Canada, has granted a license to the down downtrodden online poker website. The commission has renewed the Full Tilt Poker’s secondary license for two years, and the renewal took effect on the first of the month.
This is great news for online poker players around the world, who wish to resume their activities at Full Tilt Poker. However, American poker players are dismayed about the news. They believe that awarding Full Tilt Poker a license encourages the site to continue operating without repaying their cash. Regulators should be applying pressure to the online poker site, pushing Full Tilt to refund American players the winnings that lie stagnant in its servers.
The American Department of Justice and the Alderney Gaming Control Commission, who recently suspended the site’s license, are also upset over the news. There is no word yet on whether either entity will take action, but OnlineCasino.org will keep you updated on the situation.
