This Week in Gambling: US online gambling via tribal gaming?

12 August 2021

This week's video and gambling news focuses on how U.S. online gambling could be expanding in states with tribal gaming, much like the arrangement between the state of Florida and the Seminole Tribe. Congressmen from New York and California are supporting a bill to allow Tribal Gaming casinos within states to operate online gambling websites. And the details of that bill are pretty exciting.

When the state of Florida reached an agreement with the Seminole Tribe, no one expected the fallout could result in US online gambling expansion. And while there is still a long way to go to make it happen, that path is an interesting one.

The Floridian compact with the Seminoles would allow them to take mobile sports bets from anyone within the state, even if they were not located on Tribal property. That bill has led to a federal lawsuit, but while we wait to see how that plays out, some in the US Congress are taking matters into their own hands.

Representative Lou Correa of California and Representative John Katko of New York have sponsored a bipartisan bill that would “…remove Federal barriers regarding the offering of mobile wagers on Indian lands when the applicable State and Indian Tribe have reached an agreement.”

The legal definition of where an online bet takes place has no legal precedent. If the bets placed online are legal defined as occurring where the servers are located, then any Tribal casino with servers located on their land could accept US Online Gambling bets from anyone in the state.
