Tribes across nation looking to enter Internet gaming industry

Tribes across the nation are looking to jump into the Internet gaming business.

The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes signed a Class III gaming compact with the state of Oklahoma to share revenues from Poker Tribes. The deal, however, has yet to win approval from the Bureau of Indian Affairs so the site isn't up and running yet.

The Alturas Indian Rancheria in California plans to launch Desert Rose Bingo by the end of the year. But the tribe hasn't received state or federal approval.

The Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa in Wisconsin also wants to get nto the game but isn't going it alone. The Tribal Internet Gaming Alliance hopes to enlist other tribes and launch a site.
