Tribal Gaming Network First to Offer "Legal" USA Interstate Poker

Published Monday, September 13, 2010 -

Cake Gaming and Atlantis Internet Group have signed a licensing agreement to establish an online poker network for players in tribal casinos nationally in the USA.
This is reported as the first official 'legal' online poker network in United States to offer multi player internet poker for money across state lines. Over 30 states are connected through the “Tribal Gaming Network” allowing casinos to offer online poker games.

This activity is legal only by the special status granted to Native jurisdictions. The loophole in the UIGEA law provides for, "certain exceptions to Indian casinos, to interracial online gambling activities and to the states that allow online gambling activities under an intra-constitutional framework law."

CEO of the Atlantis Group, Donald Bailey, commented on the bold and historic move by the firm, "The Indian version of the CGN, termed the 'Tribal Gaming Network' is a direct and legitimate solution to the Indian casino at national level by providing the largest network of online poker in the United States; It is a landmark agreement for ATIG and Cake as they will offer a direct solution to the tribes and states facing economic problems at the national level."

The Atlantis Group's  ‘Tribal Gaming Network’ technology was established in tribal casinos in 2009 and has gone through rigorous trials to work out any possible problems with the system. The Tribal Gaming Network has its own unique customer database and combined with the Cake Poker network the offering will be carried to poker players across America.
Other states such as California, New Jersey and Florida are all considering intrastate online gambling but are slow to make the necessary regulatory changes to their laws. The Tribal casinos have scooped the issue and are ready to profit handsomely from their quick action knowing full well there are thousands of poker players out there now who are looking for a legal alternative to offshore companies where they are subject to the prohibition set out by the federal US government regarding payments.
