The South Bend casino debuted earlier this year on a 166-acre site that was placed in trust during the Obama administration. The decision was the first of its kind in Indiana. The tribe operates three casinos in neighboring Michigan under the Four Winds name. The flagship facility is located in New Buffalo, just a few miles from the Indiana border and about 32 miles from the South Bend site. The tribe has a Class III gaming compact with the state of Michigan. But Gamblit Poker LIVE! could be offered there without one, according to the NIGC's opinion.
The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi is offering Gamblit Poker LIVE! at its FireKeepers Casino in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Another tribe is in fact taking advantage of the situation. The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi began offering the game at its FireKeepers Casino in Michigan in January, according to a post on Facebook, after the legal opinion was first issued earlier in the month. The NIGC subsequently revised the opinion on January 23 after the Pokagon Band asked whether Gamblit Poker LIVE! could be offered in Indiana in addition to Michigan. Read More on the Story:
