#3 – Tribal Gaming Goes Online
As it stands today, a land-based casino just isn’t in the cards for small or isolated American Indian tribes; intrastate poker changes that equation in a bit way. If legal online poker takes off as expected, expect to see a lot of these small tribes turning into serious competitors.
Running an online poker site doesn’t take much and these groups should have no problem finding willing partners in the gaming business. That makes tribal gaming an x-factor that’s only going to get bigger as the year rolls on.
