With the rapid rise of online gambling all around the world over the past three decades, it has been important for online casino operators and bet makers to be made to conform to ethical operational standards. Without regulation, online services of any kind can get out of hand and be free to do what they see fit.
When dealing across borders to virtual establishments, you always run the risk of being scammed of money without any real way of enforcing recourse, unless such establishments are answerable to a regulating body. For this reason, a network of regulating bodies around the world are in place to lawfully govern online and land-based gambling for the sake of fairness and security for both parties concerned. The Kahnawake Gaming Commission is one such regulator, operating within the borders of Canada.
