Initially it appeared as if Nevada would become the first US state to offer licensed real money online gambling services. In August, the regulatory body in Nevada granted an online poker license to South Point Hotel and Casino, and poker media reported that South Point would be the first real money online poker service in Nevada. However, GEObet Gambling Network recently issued a press release, in which it stated that it is making preparations to launch an online poker room for Native American tribal casinos in November.
Gerry Gionet, the chief executive officer of GEObet Gambling Network, a provider of online gaming technology and services, said, “GEObet is helping Native American tribes to fulfill the natural extension of their rights as sovereign lands to bring their casino gambling businesses into the new millennium. As competition for land based gaming gets fiercer, all land based casino groups, whether they are in California, Nevada or anywhere else in North America, will bring their businesses online. Tribal gaming has the right to protect its interests and compete with state and private casino groups.”
GEObet Gambling Network has plans to bring several Native American tribes under one umbrella so that they can offer progressive jackpot networks and larger shared prized pools. Gionet said, “If tribal nations and tribal casino groups join forces, they will create the largest gaming force in the world. We want to open tribal gaming up to a world-wide audience, and reach far beyond the players within a three hour car ride of tribal lands.”
The press release also stated that GEObet wants Native American tribes to grab ancillary benefits by launching online gambling businesses. The company’s goal is to bring technical education and employment to tribal land and also to develop a sophisticated services industry to help tribal gaming networks. This will include establishing server facilities on tribal territories and generating jobs in areas such as computer programming, Internet security, web designing, and other services related to the Internet gambling industry.
The operator of GEObet.com is North Star Entertainment Limited. GEObet.com is licensed in Curacao. The team at GEObet has created and brought an entire world of entertainment straight from tribal jurisdictions and promises to offer gambling services that are honest, fair, and reliable.
GEObet Gambling Network, which sponsored the iGaming Symposium of this week, a conference that was held in Saskatoon in Saskatchewan, unfolded its online poker plans on this occasion.
