    Default More bad news for California online gaming efforts

    More bad news for online gaming hopes in California last week, as the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel tribe's push to offer online poker and bingo games was dealt a severe blow.

    The tribe was trying to claim it had the right to offer the games under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, but a federal court of appeals had other ideas.

    Here's what Ninth Circuit Judge Carlos T. Bea wrote in his opinion, via

    The panel held that Iipay Nation’s operation of Desert Rose Casino violated the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (“UIGEA”). The panel held that the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act protected gaming activity conducted on Indian lands, but the patrons’ act of placing a bet or wager on a game of Desert Rose Casino while located in California, violated the UIGEA, and was not protected by the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.

    The panel further held that even if all of the “gaming activity” associated with Desert Rose Casino occurred on Indian lands, the patrons’ act of placing bets or wagers over the internet while located in a jurisdiction where those bets or wagers were illegal made Iipay Nation’s decision to accept financial payments associated with those bets or wagers a violation of the UIGEA.

    Because Iipay’s operation of DRB violates the UIGEA, the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit AFFIRMED the district court’s order granting summary judgment to the Government.

    California also blocked Native Americans from the new rising Weed business.

    You know, casinos are the only chance for Native Americans to take revenge for the bad treatment by the White Man. Revenge by taking them the money out of their wallets.

    Crazy Horse was the best fighter at his time with a high intellect, was a tactic genius, so brave. He would be the World Champion in Mixed Martial Arts today and probably also in Chess. He was cowardly murdered from the back, unarmed and in peaceful mission, murdered by white soldiers.

    I support every efforts for any tribe to open a casino, online or on their remaining soil.
