The issue of online casino games legislation is moving ahead in the United States. This past week, the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs met with tribal casino representatives to discuss the future of online casino games in the country.
 
At the Oversight Hearing on Regulation of Tribal Gaming: From Brick & Mortar to the Internet, the representatives made it known that they would like to be involved in the discussion around online casino games.
 
At the hearing, the Senate Committee introduced a draft plan for tribal online casino regulation in the Tribal Gaming Act of 2012. Among the recommendations are calls for the establishment of an Office of Tribal Online Gaming to oversee online gambling, a way to distribute online gaming revenue with those tribes who elect not to offer online gambling, and the creation of a regulatory body within the National Indian Gaming Council that can issue casino games online licenses.
 
The Tribal Gaming Act of 2012 is still in its early form and has a long way to go before being signed into law.
 
Various representatives testified at the hearing. There are many interests and opinions involved in the question of who should have the final word on iGaming regulation within the tribal community. The general consensus is that the power should ultimately be with the National Indian Gaming Council.
 
Tribal casinos are some of the biggest in the nation and bring in billions in revenue per year. So far, there is no final word on when or even if, the Senate will move forward with the Act.
