Atlantis Gaming Corporation (AGC) has agreed a partnership with BetConstruct that will see the betting and gaming technology supplier develop its Tribal Gaming Network (TGN).
The TGN was first announced by AGC last year, and is envisaged as a Virtual Private Network through which different land-based casinos can offer online games.
It will connect tribal casinos across the US, offering a range of content from multiple suppliers. AGC believes that interpretations of the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act and a 2009 opinion issued by the National Indian Gaming Council confirm the offering as legal despite a lack of widespread iGaming regulation in the US.
"We searched worldwide and selected BetConstruct after performing due diligence on many platforms that we felt might fit our needs, the results were clear that they had the technology, experience, and support that we would need to pull off a project of this scale," AGC president and CEO Donald Bailey explained.
"Our mandate is to provide to both our operators and our end user players a robust, secure, and compliant platform, fresh content, and payment processing. BetConstruct delivered on that demand," he said. "AGC has a long- term dedication in assisting tribal casinos to compete in the e-gaming revolution and the introduction of innovative partnerships such as TGN will accomplish our objectives to advance tribal communities in the gaming industry.
TGN will initially be launched to offer social casino games and daily fantasy sports across casinos in 28 US states on Indian lands. It will limit and geo-restrict content based on what is currently legal in each jurisdiction.
“We are excited to join Atlantis Gaming Corporation in our new Tribal Gaming Network and we warmly welcome them to the BetConstruct family," BetConstruct CEO Vahe Baloulian added. "There are few opportunities for electronic gaming in the United States and we are looking forward to our future together.
"AGC has done a great job of building relationships within the tribal sector and has strong leadership on their team, together with our state of the art technology, it's a winning combination."
