Santa Ysabel Band offers real money bingo games on website

The Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel in California has launched Desert Rose Bingo, an online gaming site.

The Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel in California is offering real money bingo games and is still planning to launch an Internet poker site.

The tribe made headlines this summer when it announced PrivateTable.Com. But real money poker games have never gone live amid concerns about their legality.

The tribe instead launched Desert Rose Bingo with the help of Great Luck LLC, an Internet gaming firm. Patrons must be in California and must be 18 years of old to participate.

“The Iipay Nation is excited to be the first tribal government in America to deploy Great Luck’s VPNAPS technology,” David Chelette, the president of Santa Ysabel Interactive, said in a press release.

The tribe is calling the site "phase 1" of its plan to offer poker games online.
