Tribes Looking to Form Online Gambling Coalitions

A report appearing on GamblingCompliance.com suggests that US Tribes could begin forming online gambling coalitions as states begin to legalize betting on the Web.

From GamblingCompliance.com:

“We’re starting to see more force behind the idea of developing Internet coalitions,” said a tribal lobbyist who, like many others attending the NIGA conference, requested anonymity.

“It’s a positive development in that it means tribes are finally beginning to embrace the technology and potential of Internet commerce,” said Jacob Coin, executive director of public affairs for the San Manuel Band of Serrano Mission Indians.

GamblingCompliance notes that Tribes are split on whether there should be federal legislation versus states and Tribes passing policy on their own.
