The Kahnawake Gaming Commission is now not eligible to issue licenses to players for online gambling in the USA. This move was finalized after a specialist in a data center based in Kahnawake was found in gross violation of New Jersey license.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement agreed with KGC that every Kahnawake website will stop accepting players hailing from any US state. Doing so will be deemed as a breach of law. This new regulation has come into effect from September 30th, 2016.
That Kahnawake data center specialist who violated norms was given a transactional waiver a couple of years back by the DGE. The waiver enabled the specialist to work in the regulated intrastate market of the garden state. Last fall, the NY Times reported that a number of operators resorted to illegal services in various regions of the USA.
In fact, it was the NY Times that got in touch with the gaming commission after which the DGE kick started an enquiry. A DGE spokesperson said that they will begin regulatory proceedings against that data center specialist soon enough.
