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.”

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.

At Monday’s Gaming Policy Committee meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli said that the Silver State will likely issue its first licenses in 30-60 days — and it will probably take another six to eight months after that before games are running.


At the last meeting, Lipparelli suggested a slightly earlier date for licenses. The majority of time will be devoted to regulators approving the technology of licensed sites. This spring, the state finalized rules for the private testing of software.
