“Team SoloMid is looking good this year.  With a solid 17-1 Summer Split record, this team is sure to have the skills to put up a good fight. The trouble is that they are groups with other strong teams that may tip them up.”

Kahnawake Gaming Commission Restricts US Players

Licensees of the Kahnawake Gaming Commission recently absorbed the news of the commission’s restriction against US players. This means that certain gambling sites like Spin Palace, Red Flush Casino, and JackpotCity Casino will no longer provide online gambling services to the US market.

“This is big news for the online gambling world. A lot of offshore online casinos that serve the US market depend on the Kahnawake Gambling Commission license to operate. This is because licenses, like those from the New Jersey Gaming Commission, to operate in the US are often very strict in their requirements.”
