Golden Arrow to manage the new online casino operations and marketing campaign of All Nations Casino online gambling brand.
Native American tribes across the United States offer a wealth of casino gaming opportunities. Many states across the US are home to Indian reservations where casinos are open to the public and offer an array of casino gaming options. Several tribes have also shown interest in offering online casino sites with one group having just recently announced a new online gambling brand set to launch by March.
All Nations Casinos
All Nations Casino is a new online casino, lottery and sportsbook betting option set to launch online beginning in March, based in Canada. The brand will be managed as well as owned by the First Nations staff and will be operated by Golden Arrow. The idea was created by Gerry Gionet, a First Nations entrepreneur and CEO/President of Golden Arrow.
First Nations has plans to offer the online gaming brand with the same values and spirit of the community with tribal-themed slot gaming options. Players will be welcomed to enjoy the site from anywhere in the world, which should include the United States. But will players located in the US be able to take part?
The online gaming brand will operate on the Alteatec iGaming Management System with Altea Gaming offering game titles, affiliate systems and gaming software. To begin, the online casino will provide players with around 300 slot and table games. The sportsbook will be connected to one in Germany known as Tipster.de. This site was formerly known as Bet90.
Gionet is a respected businessman who is excited to enter the industry of gaming. He has worked in the past on construction projects and been the head of a construction company, with this venture being completely new to his skill-set. The launch of the online casino will be quite different than other online gaming sites launched by tribes in the US, in particular by going with non-traditional gaming providers.
According to Gionet, the new online gaming site will be providing the First Nations with the ability to work and have opportunity. Gionet stated that from marketing to customer service, the online gaming industry provides clean, sustainable and professional jobs for the First Nations. A supporter of the project, Poundmaker Nation’s Eric Tootoosis, stated that the economic future continues to be focused on creating meaningful jobs that include projects such as the All Nations Casino.
Not His First Rodeo
Gionet may have worked in construction in the past but he also been associated with online gaming. Back in 2012, he created an online gaming platform known as GEObet which was used to take Indian communities online. This brand was shut down as of late as Gionet wanted to create a new company, having full control and in the process, creating more jobs for his people.
For now, Golden Arrow Worldwide has plans to launch the All Nations Casino in March, with no set date having been announced.
Issues in the Future?
It is interesting to note that the First Nations may end up having issues in the future when trying to offer gaming in the US. Some Indian-run casinos in the US offer free play online casinos or real money gaming but only while on-site but with online capabilities. Other tribes have tried in the past to launch online gaming and have been unsuccessful. The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma both tribe to offer an online casino for international players and were blocked by the state government.
Lawsuits were filed with the tribe stating they had the right to offer online gaming due to their compact with the state. So, it will be interesting to see how the First Nations fares as they try to launch online gaming, opening up their offerings worldwide.
