Alaska Star - Your Community Newspaper: Eklutna submits for Indian gaming permit 04/12/07

Alaska Star - Your Community Newspaper: Eklutna submits for Indian gaming permit 04/12/07:
"The NIGC's primary mission is to regulate gaming activities on Indian lands for the purpose of shielding Indian tribes from organized crime and other corrupting influences and to ensure that Indian tribes are the primary beneficiaries of gaming revenue.

According to Pensoneau, in passing the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act in 1988, Congress included the definition of Class II and Class III gaming.

Class II gaming includes bingo, pull tabs, lotto, punch boards and non-house banked card games authorized or not explicitly prohibited by the state in which the tribal operation is located.
“The gambling that most people think of is Class III gaming,” Pensoneau said. “Vegas-style games like blackjack, craps and roulette.”"
