Bwin.party signs Californian online agreement
Bwin.party has signed a formal agreement with the United Auburn Indian Community that will see it offering online poker services in California if suitable intrastate legislation is enacted there. The deal is for a 10-year period from the date that online poker services are launched.
David Keyser, Tribal Chairman of UAIC, welcomed the deal and said that he saw the legalisation of Internet gaming as inevitable.
"Having met with representatives from a number of different online gaming companies, bwin.party was our first choice as partner," he said.
"With its unrivalled expertise in online poker, proven technology and player loyalty we are confident of being able to maximise the revenue opportunity from a regulated online poker market in California and to continue to enhance the long-term prosperity of our community."
