Absolute Poker and UltimateBet to be blocked in Kentucky

4 Dec 2008

MONTREAL, Quebec -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Tokwiro Enterprises ENRG (Tokwiro), the owner of the Absolute Poker (AP) and UltimateBet (UB) poker sites, announced today that, in order to fully comply with the Franklin County (Kentucky) Circuit Court's recent orders, it is restricting access to Tokwiro's sites by Kentucky residents.

In complying with the Court's orders, Tokwiro has agreed to implement an IP Block across its Absolute Poker and UltimateBet websites (both .net and .com), plus utlimatebet.tv. The Block will prevent players with IP addresses originating inside the Commonwealth of Kentucky from playing using AP and UB software, logging in or registering a new account, making deposits to the cashier, and transferring or receiving funds from other players. The IP Block will allow players with IP addresses originating in Kentucky to make withdrawals of existing account funds, but these players will not be able to make any new deposits or transfers.

Paul Leggett, Tokwiro's Chief Operating Officer, said: "We have taken this action in order to ensure that the vast number of our customers, who do not reside in Kentucky, continue to have access to our sites and to enjoy playing online poker without disruption or inconvenience."
