Provider of ready-made tribal and independent casino solutions, GEObet Gambling Network, will be examining a possibility of developing an online gaming solution with Saskatchewan First Nations.
Former Chief of the White Bear First Nation Bernie Shepherd said that they are exploring online opportunities so they could create revenue for their communities and provide business and employment opportunities for members. All these can be done through exercising their Inherent and Constitutional rights. Shepherd is also leading the first Indian-owned land-based casino.
GEObet has recently presented to the Special Indian Gaming Assembly in Prince Albert a new solution that will extend the reach of the Saskatchewan First Nation Gaming Network among many presentations they have made on the matter.
Their casinos cannot afford to lose their land-based casino customers to online operators, said GEObet CEO Gerry Gionet. That is why they have developed a turnkey internet gaming solution that will allow Saskatchewan First Nations to start running online as quickly as possible and without any glitches.
Recent developments have also been brewing on the south of the border, which has influenced the current First Nations decisions.
“The draft igaming bill is a positive and unified step on behalf of our southern relatives who are on the path of self-governance and self-sustainability,” Shepherd said. He added that the spirit of entrepreneurship has remained strong with the indigenous people of North America.
He also said that gaming is an integral part of their society, which dates back to thousands of years ago. Success in the regional tribal casinos and their operations has led into the approach of extending First Nation gaming businesses to the Internet with the same rights and liberties as other industries enjoy.
