North Dakota Explores Online Gaming
The government of North Dakota has now starting the process of requesting information on updating and converting its lottery’s online gaming system.
To start, an initial RFI has officially gone out which would also include updating all of its associated products, retail network and support services.
This all began last week when Office of North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, the RFI states that the government wants to explore online gaming ‘options’ with any questions due by November 16 before the whole process closes at the end of the month.
Even though North Dakota is one of the least populated states in the union with a population of 684,000 people, this is good news for the gaming industry in the US. Since 2004 North Dakota has been offering multi-jurisdictional lottery games such as Mega Millions, Powerball, Hot Lotto, 2By2 and Wild Card 2.
Once North Dakota makes it official and becomes a regulated jurisdiction, this will be great news for any legal gaming network looking to add more US players state by state as predicted by the industry.
