Some Comfort Provided to UB.com, Absolute Poker Players: Statement Issued

The Kahnawake Gaming Commission, which was instrumental in getting players paid from a high profile “insider” cheating scandal related to its licensees UB.com and Absolute Poker, finally issued a statement related to Friday’s indictments of the two online poker ventures.

“Our principal concern is that players are not adversely affected by the actions taken by US authorities. The KGC is presently engaged in discussions with its licensee concerning the status of player accounts. Upon completion of its review, the KGC will determine what steps may be required and will issue a further statement at that time.”

The poker playing community has voiced discontent over UB.com and Absolute Poker’s failure to address the issue in recent days.

US players have been permitted to play on the two sites, which are both operated by the Cereus Network.  However, the company is unable to allow funding for new accounts, redeposit and does not currently have a method for withdrawing money as a result of the US Justice Department freezing some bank accounts used to make such transactions. 

Sources close to UB.com have suggested that the company is leaning towards exiting the US market, at least temporarily, but this has not officially been confirmed. 

The Cereus Network is the only Gambling911.com sponsor impacted by Friday’s crackdown.  Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars, the world’s number one and number two largest Internet card rooms, respectively, were also indicted as part of the four year investigation.
