Ho-Chunk Nation agrees to arbitration for electronic poker game

The Ho-Chunk Nation and the state of Wisconsin are in binding arbitration to determine the legality of an electronic poker game.

The tribe installed eight poker machines at Dejope Gaming, a Class II facility, last November. An opinion from the National Indian Gaming Commission said the games are Class II.

But the state says the machine falls into the Class III category and can't be offered at Dejope Gaming. The compact limits Class III games to certain facilities.

"We are supportive of having a final determination made by an appropriate authority," Ho-Chunk Nation President Wilfrid Cleveland said in a statement, The Madison Capital Times reported.
