Tribal Gaming: The Leveler (HB 4308)
In 1988 Congress introduced The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, which superseded a Supreme Court hearing from a year before stating that gambling on reservation land was included in tribal sovereignty. The 1988 Act removed control over gambling from the tribes, introducing classes of gambling and state compacts that had to be formed between the local state governments and tribes. Over the years, this Act has prohibited tribes from entering the online gaming sphere unless the state they reside in agrees explicitly to a compact with the tribe.
This week, a new bill has been brought before congress, bill 4308, which says that any gambling servers located on tribal lands should be considered gambling on tribal lands and regulated as such. This bill aims to remove federal barriers to iGaming for US tribes and level the playing field, allowing them to benefit from the sweeping iGaming legalization taking place in the US. We'll update you on how the bill progresses.
