Magic Palace: EGD Licence invalidated

(MOHAWK TERRITORY OF KAHNAWÀ:KE – March 26, 2024) Earlier today, the Kahnawà:ke Gaming Commission (the “Commission”) became aware that the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (the “MCK”) had terminated its contractual agreement with Magic Palace.

Section 51 of the Commission’s Regulations concerning Electronic Gaming Devices (the “Regulations”) provides that an Electronic Gaming Device (“EGD”) Operator’s Licence is not valid without a contractual agreement between the EGD operator and the MCK.

In view of the foregoing, at a duly convened meeting held on March 26, 2024, the Commission declared:

  • The EGD Operator’s Licence held by Magic Palace to be invalid;
  • The invalidation of Magic Palace’s EGD Operator’s License overwrites the previously issued suspension of this license, and as such, Magic Palace must permanently close its EGD operations.
  • The previously issued Show Cause Notice, in relation to Magic Palace’s EGD Operator’s License is no longer necessary, and as such, there will be no Show Cause procedure with respect to its EGD Operator’s License.
  • The suspension and Show Cause proceedings related to Magic Palace’s Poker Room Licence will continue in accordance with the Show Cause Notice issued by the Commission on March 25, 2024.

To summarize: Magic Palace EGD operations are permanently closed, effective immediately. Magic Palace’s Poker Room operations continue to be suspended pending the outcome of the Show Cause proceedings. Mirela’s Restaurant continues to be closed.
