The Rosebud Sioux
has once again extended its Class III gaming compact with the state of South Dakota.
A notice published in the Federal Register
on Wednesday extends the agreement until January 2018
. It's the 11th extension since 2012, according to a review of past notices
Extensions have become common in South Dakota even as tribes have sought to negotiate new compacts. The biggest issue is the limit on slot machines imposed by the state -- the original agreements only allow 250 machines at each casino.
Non-Indian facilities, on the other hand, collectively operate more than 3,200 slot machines in the resort town of Deadwood. They now offer keno, craps and roulette after voters approved those games in 2015.
