Online Gambling Moves Forward in Delaware, Not in California

Online Gambling Moves Forward in Delaware, Not in California | This Week in Gambling - News | Scoop.it

Delaware’s House of Representatives has approved legislation that would permit intrastate online gambling and expand the number of retail locations offering sports betting products. Following approval by a House committee last month, the full House approved HB333 aka the Delaware Gaming Competitiveness Act by a vote of 29 to 8 on Tuesday. The Act calls for online poker, slots, table games and keno to be regulated by the state Lottery, offered via sites fronted by the state’s three land-based casinos on a platform operated by a yet-to-be-determined third-party vendor. The Act also boosts the number of venues offering Delaware’s version of sports betting by 20. Delaware was one of the four states that opted-in to legal sports betting when the federal PASPA sports betting prohibitions were enacted in 1992, but Delaware was restricted to three-game parlay bets. The legislation now moves to the Senate.

California Tribes Say Poker Bill Dead

California Tribes Say Poker Bill Dead | This Week in Gambling - News | Scoop.it
California's Indian tribes unite in opposition to the state's SB1463 online poker bill; Nevada could issues online poker licenses by fall...


One of the more concrete pieces of news to emerge from the Global iGaming Summit and Expo (GiGse) on Wednesday was the line in the sand drawn by California’s Indian tribes against passage of the SB1463 online poker bill currently pending in the state legislature. Unlike previous instances, in which tribal organizations took opposite sides of the debate or favored one bill over another, they appear to be speaking with one voice this time, and that voice is saying fuggeddaboutit. Mark Macarro, chairman of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, said there wasn’t a single California tribe that supported SB1463, which he described as “a dysfunctional product that encourages dispute.” Macarro went as far as to pronounce the bill “DOA.”

Bwin.party Inks Online Poker Deal with California Tribe

Bwin.party Inks Online Poker Deal with California Tribe | This Week in Gambling - News | Scoop.it
Bwin.party inks 10-year deal with California's United Auburn Indian Community if/when legislation passes; PokerStars ups Zoom table cap...


On Monday, Bwin.party digital entertainment announced it had entered into an agreement with the United Auburn Indian Community (UAIC) to provide online poker services to California residents if/when state politicians shift their asses long enough to pass the relevant legislation. The UAIC owns and operates the Thunder Valley Casino Resort near Sacramento, which qualifies it to apply for an online poker license under the guidelines of the bill currently pending in the state legislature. However, without significant modifications, that legislation was recently described as “DOA” by a plethora of California tribal representatives. For the sake of argument, the bwin.party/UAIC deal would be for a term of 10 years starting from the passage of legislation.

Tribes Hold the Cards in California Online Poker Effort

Tribes Hold the Cards in California Online Poker Effort | This Week in Gambling - News | Scoop.it
The odds of New Jersey legalizing online poker first is much greater than California doing so and the San Francisco Chronicle’s Demian Bulwa does a superb job of laying out the reason why.


Bulwa doesn’t draw comparisons between the two states but rather offers the various obstacles standing in the way of California's efforts.

Atop that list are the Tribal casinos, who have managed to quash past attempts. While some have come on board, others have not.


From the San Francisco Chronicle:


There's hardly consensus in the group. Some tribes support online gambling, believing it reaches a unique clientele, while others fear customers will stay home rather than travel to pull the levers of lucrative casino slot machines.


The Tribes want in but at the expense of the horse tracks that they want out.


Other barriers standing in the way include greed. California is asking for $200 million in licensing fees according to Bulwa’s article. That amount is in place to supposedly limit the number of applicants, and $200 million should certainly accomplish this...
