bwin.party Enters Agreement with California Indian Tribe

By , Rakeback.com Poker News Editor

As of the time of this writing, just one American state - Nevada - has all of the necessary laws in place to allow state-regulated intrastate online gambling in the near future.

A number of politicians from other states have salivated at the prospect of pursuing this potential revenue stream as well. In most of those states, a number of political issues must be dealt with before such laws can potentially pass.

California is one of a handful of states that is viewed by experts as likely to pass online gambling laws at some point in the not-too-distant future. Brick & mortar casinos in California today are largely run by Indian tribes. As one might imagine, those tribes all want to make sure that they set themselves up to compete in the online gambling realm.

One possible way for tribes to compete is by partnering with existing gaming companies, and the United Auburn Indian Community has done just that. Last week they entered an agreement with bwin.party to offer intrastate online poker within California, pending future legislation.

The United Auburn Indian Community currently owns the Thunder Valley Casino Resort, an award-winning resort in Lincoln, California - roughly 30 miles from Sacramento.

The deal is beneficial for both parties - bwin.party now has a way to attach itself to a California gaming license, and the United Auburn Indian Community will be able to offer the attractive software and secure infrastructure that is currently used on bwin.party sites like bwin Poker and Party Poker.

It is very likely that deals similar to this one will frequently be announced in the coming months as other states also get closer to passing online gaming bills.
