Please read the bottom of this page for recent updates.

Daily Kentucky Poker Site Updates:

January 1, 2017 – Estimated Date of Legalized Online Poker in Kentucky is 2019-2020.

June 8, 2013 – Kentucky gives up on its fraud claims against FullTilt, Absolute Poker, and PokerStars.

April 23, 2010 – The list for Kentucky has been updated. Please note you can still play online, but options are limited.

March 18, 2010 – Kentucky has was what may “seem” like a major victory in seizing the domains but in reality they have not. Joe Brennan of IMEGA representing the case said there is nothing to worry about and this is a trivial matter and will be corrected.

October 5, 2009 – Kentucky is at it again as they file an appeal and are still trying to win a losing battle for these domain names

December 3, 2008 – Add Absolutepoker to the list of banned sites from Kentucky.  This was inevitable.

November 30, 2008 – Ultimatebet which operates under the Cereus Network is now IP blocking poker players from Kentucky starting today.  Not all players are being affected and their sister site Absolutepoker hasn’t yet implemented the block.  I expect they will shortly, testing the block on UB first.

November 21, 2008 – The entire Cakenetwork is blocking players from Kentucky.  Also, Pokerstars stated they can’t release any information on their plans as there is current ongoing legal action.

November 13, 2008 – Cake poker is now blocking players from Kentucky.  It is somewhat spotty as it doesn’t seem the ISP blocking mechanism is working all that great.  Some people can still logon in the state of Kentucky, meaning their IP is probably in a surrounding state.

November 10, 2008 – Bodoglife has no plans of leaving Kentucky.  They’ve lost their domains twice before so they have an edge in this area.  They don’t believe their host will give up their domain and chances are won’t comply.

November 9, 2008 – Full tilt is expected to challenge this ruling and not turn over their domain to Kentucky.  They are the first I’ve heard to actually issue press to players that they will not back down.

October 24, 2008 – The judge has changed the date from Nov. 17 to Dec. 3 for the gambling domains to comply with Geo blocking Kentucky.  Also Bugsyclub took action yesterday and is now blocking players from Kentucky.

October 20, 2008 – The Merge Network announced they will obide by the ruling and GEO block players from Kentucky.  They will not being going to appeal the decision by the judge.
