In this week’s gambling news update we’ve got Yggrdrasil’s newest release titled Gods vs GigaBlox, a Tribal US Casino facing closure, and some new releases from Greentube.
Tribal US Casino Faces Closure
Two Kings Casino, a tribal casino run by The Cawabe Nation has found itself in quite a dire predicament. The National Indian Gambling Commission has cited both The Catawba Nation and the company that manages Two Kings for violating federal laws as well as other regulations. Based on those violations, Two Kings faces a very likely temporary closure order. Potential fines could mount up to $60,000 daily for each violation. The Catawbas initially opened as a “pre-launch facility” at the casino site in July 2021. That facility was recently expanded, with the addition of a sportsbook in September 2022.
Sequoyah Simermeyer, chairman of the NIGC, stated: “We do not take this enforcement action lightly, but do so to preserve the industry’s integrity and protect the valuable tool Indian Gaming represents for many tribes as codified in the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.”
The NIGC’s compliance division is still investigating the whole ordeal. and their modus operandi. In any case, The Catawba Nation has 30 days to appeal the notice of violation with the Gaming Commission.
