Native American online poker room to launch this month

Friday, 2 November 2012

It looks like a Native American casino could be about to steal a march on the Nevada casino giants by launching a new online gaming offering. The GEObet Gambling Network, an online gambling technology and services provider that focuses on bringing Native American tribal casinos online, is set to launch an online casino and poker room in November.

“GEObet is helping Native American tribes to fulfil the natural extension of their rights as sovereign lands to bring their casino gambling businesses into the new millennium,” said Gerry Gionet, CEO of the GEObet Network. “As competition for land based gaming gets fiercer, all land based casino groups, whether they are in California, Nevada or anywhere else in North America, will bring their businesses online. Tribal gaming has the right to protect its interests and compete with state and private casino groups.”

Gionet hopes 'to unify tribal communities’ by ‘creating a network of tribal casinos online'. The network would be able to 'share liquidity in communal games like poker, and work together to accumulate massive shared online slot-jackpots'.

“If tribal nations and tribal casino groups join forces, they will create the largest gaming force in the world,” continued Gionet. “We want to open tribal gaming up to a world-wide audience, and reach far beyond the players within a three hour car ride of tribal lands”.

By launching online gaming, Gionet also hopes to bring employment and technical education to tribal lands, as well as developing a high-tech services industry to support the tribal gaming network.

'This would include developing server facilities on tribal lands and creating jobs in Internet security, computer programming, web design and other services utilized by online gaming companies' read a statement from GEObet.
