The GEObet Tribal Gambling Network of Canada’s Thuu T’ina Nation has recently opened its first ever online gambling casino for real money in North America, an unprecedented launch which will, no doubt, set the precedent for many to follow.
The company’s CEO, Gerry Gionet claims that the legality of the operation stands above any doubt as the company has followed all necessary regulations.
These regulations are set by the Wapi-Maskwa iGaming Act of NorthernBearCasino.com which is in accordance with a number of regulatory frameworks including those of Curacaso, Malta and Kahnawake.
However, Donna Harpauer, Minister in charge of the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority was cautious in her comments, waiting for the company’s formal announcement before a final verdict.
In a recent interview, NorthernBear Casino CEO Bernie Shepherd set out his plans to “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”.
Gionet is planning to continue in Mr Shepherd’s footsteps, advocating the rights of First Nations people by stressing the long history of trading and gaming in First Nation communities.
