Grand Prive Kahnawake licence suspended with immediate effect


Failure to report change in software could result in permanent expulsion

The Grand Prive online casino group's woes seem to keep mounting. Following a bitter two year war with disgruntled affiliates and an abrupt move over the holiday weekend to a new software provider the beleaguered casino group has now had its Kahnawake licence suspended.

In an advisory notice dated April 6th, the Kahnawake Gaming Commission advises:

"The Kahnawake Gaming Commission advises that it has suspended the Client Provider Authorization ("CPA") held by Maricass International Holdings Inc. ("Maricass"). The suspension is effective immediately and affects the following sites (sometimes known as the "Grand Prive group"):


www.bellavegas.com
www.bigdollar.com
www.casinograndbay.com
www.fortunejunction.com
www.grandbaycasino.com
www.jackpotwheel.com
www.jupiterclub.com
www.kasinograndbay.com
www.lakepalace.com
www.roadhousereels.com

The Commission has taken this action due to Maricass' failure to file a Material Change Report, advising the Commission that it had recently changed software suppliers. While its CPA is under suspension, Maricass is not authorized to operate any of the aforementioned sites (or any other sites under its control) from Kahnawake and the Commission is not responsible for these sites should they continue to operate from another jurisdiction.

In the event Maricass does not take immediate steps to remedy its failure to file a Material Change Report and obtain the Commission's approval for its new software, its CPA will be revoked.

For further information, please contact the Kahnawake Gaming Commission at info@gamingcommission.ca."

The advisory, which can be viewed at: http://www.gamingcommission.ca/news/pr04072010a.pdf is signed by Murray Marshall, general counsel of the KGC.

Grand Prive has switched to the BetonSoft software, allegedly without notifying the KGC, former supplier Microgaming or standards and player protection eCOGRA of its intention to do so. It is believed that the group is now operating its brands with the prefix 'bet.' under a Netherlands Antilles licence.
