The new site at www.northernbearcasino.com is operated on the GEObet Network's Tribal Gambling Network with the Wapi-Maskwa iGaming Act acting as the governing body. In addition to poker, the site will offer a selection of casino games.“After almost 20 years of successful First Nations-owned and operated casinos in Saskatchewan, I decided to become an owner/operator because I believe First Nations need to ‘occupy the field’ of online gambling,” said Bernard Shepherd from NorthernBearCasino.com.“I’ll be operating under the same inherent, treaty, constitutional and sovereign rights as when I opened the first Indian casino in Canada on February 26, 1993. Our forefathers traded globally 100-plus years ago and entrepreneurship has been in our DNA for 10,000-plus years. This is what November 6, 2012, is going to stand for.”Gerry Gionet, Chief Executive Officer for GEObet Gambling Network, added, “In addition to operating one of the finest online casinos in the market, GEObet Gambling Network's goal is to unite tribal gaming in the virtual world by offering a turnkey live online casino to First Nations and tribes in North America.” GEObet, said that it expects more tribal gaming interests to join the Northern Bear Casino on its the Tribal Gambling Network in the near future.
