It seems as if the United States isn’t the only country that’s currently going through a rough time period with regards to poker since Canadian players are also experiencing some struggles. And one of the biggest issues facing poker players in this country is the Loto-Quebec organization.

Currently, Loto-Quebec is mired in a dispute with the Quebec Poker Tournament League over a negative statement regarding Loto-Quebec. reported on this matter by writing the following:

Currently, the Quebec Poker Tournament League has approximately 40,000 members. While the league does maintain a partnership with Loto-Quebec in regards to Quebec’s online interest –, this partnership is in danger of falling apart. This occurred after the Quebec Poker Tournament League published a statement on their official website that was related to a possible dispute over missing service payments and sponsorship by Loto-Quebec.

As the article states, Loto-Quebec claims that the negative press over a sponsorship deal gone bad has caused financial struggles for the company. More specifically, the lottery organization is seeking almost $185,000 for the alleged damages.

Moving past the whole mess with the Quebec Poker Tournament League, there are Canadian online poker players who have lots of money wrapped up in Full Tilt Poker that they can’t access. Now this has become a common problem for many players throughout the world, but Canadian players made up a sizable portion of the FTP player base, so there’s a lot of CAD locked on the site.

And as we’ve reported in the past, it doesn’t look like players will be seeing this money any time soon because the Alderney Gaming Control Commission is still keeping FTP’s license in suspension.
