Tribal Casinos sign historic online poker agreement

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Sep 10, 2010 Posted in Legal Poker News | No Comments »

There is legal online poker in the United States! The catch is that it can only played at Tribal Casinos located in 30 states across the US. In the landmark deal –which will surely help the full legalization of online poker—the Atlantis Internet Group (ATIG) has entered into an agreement with Cake Gaming to supply online poker to their patrons.

Although Cake Poker will be providing the software, the two entities will remain independent of one another, so the player pools will not be combined. The agreement has created the first official online poker network in the United States.

The Casino Gateway Network (CGN) will provide the games over a Wide Area Progressive network (most commonly known by the acronym WAP) that will allow patrons of the Tribal casinos to play online poker against one another. Since, the gaming will take place only on Tribal land this exempts them from the restrictive government laws regarding online gaming.

The CEO of ATIG, Donald L. Bailey, had this to say on the deal, “Our Indian version of the CGN, called the ‘Tribal Gaming Network’ (‘TGN’) offers an immediate and legal solution to Indian casinos nationwide, providing the largest online poker network in the U.S. This is a significant milestone for ATIG and Cake, and will become an immediate economical shot in the arm for Tribes and states facing deficits nationwide.”
