One day after the Alderney Gambling Control Commission pulled Full Tilt Poker’s license, it appears they may have an alternative plan.

While the IP address for www.fulltiltpoker.com is still located in Ireland, a trace route for the IP address shows that traffic is routed through the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory. The final destination was masked, as the trace route did not terminate, but was unable to display the next destination.

Given the nature of Internet traffic, it is highly unlikely that traffic would be routed through the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory unintentionally.

No one from the KGC was immediately available for comment.

Full Tiltwas at one time licensed by the KGC. But in 2007, when the U.K. released new rules requiring online casinos, sportsbooks and poker rooms to be licensed by white-listed jurisdictions in order to run advertisements, the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory wasn't one of the white-listed jurisdictions. Full Tilt applied for and received a license from Alderney, which is located just off the northern coast of France, thus allowing the company to continue to market itself to a U.K. audience.
