Kahnawake Gaming Commission Imposes Sanctions on UB
September 30, 2021
The Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC), after studying a report by auditor Frank Catania regarding the UltimateBet cheating scandal, announced their was enough evidence to impose sanctions on online poker site UltimateBet. These sanctions include: monetary compensation to players; company security changes; continued oversight; $1,500,000 in fines; and the removal of any persons deemed "unsuitable" (as determined by KGC) from involvement with UltimateBet.

One of the most interesting aspects of the KGC statement, was it's willingness to specifically implicate 1994 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Russ Hamilton. In their published statement (which can be found in its entirety at PokerNews.com) KGC stated their was "clear and convincing evidence" that Russ Hamilton was "the main person responsible for and benefiting from the multiple cheating incidents." This does not bode well for Hamilton, as the KGC went on to note they were currently working with law enforcement officials to help prosecute any individuals found to be involved in the UB cheating scandal.
