Las Vegas and Kahnawake are not two places you often hear mentioned in the same sentence.

But when it comes to online gambling, the Mohawk community has made a name for itself.

Since the late 1990s they’ve housed internet servers that host some of the world’s biggest gambling sites.

Now, the Quebec government is making noises about blocking sites that are not part of its own Lotto Quebec brand and that is bad news for Kahnawake’s economy.

APTN’s Tom Fennario has this story.
