Kahnawà:ke was one of the first jurisdictions in the world to recognize the opportunities afforded by the interactive gaming industry. Since then, the Commission has been continuously licensing and regulating a wide range of interactive gaming sites.
On July 8, 1999 the Commission enacted its Regulations concerning Interactive Gaming. As a result it has effectively and successfully regulated interactive gaming longer than almost any other jurisdiction in the world.
Online gaming operators that are licensed by the Commission must be hosted at Mohawk Internet Technologies, a data centre located within the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawà:ke and managed by Continent 8 Technologies.
The Commission’s primary function is to provide for the protection of players who choose to participate in the online gaming offered by the Commission’s permit holders.
The Kahnawà:ke Gaming Commission logo is linked to a Logo Certification Program which will enable players to verify that a site bearing the Commission's logo is properly licensed – by simply clicking on the logo itself.
Complaints, queries and investigations are received and reviewed by the Commission in accordance with the procedures set out in Regulations with the assistance of professional advisors.
The Regulations are designed to ensure that all interactive gaming and gaming related activities conducted within or from the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawà:ke satisfy several basic principles
