04/04/2012 : TURNKEY INTERNET GAMBLING PROVIDER WARNS TRIBAL OPERATORS
 
Geobet chief adds his voice to other leaders in urging tribal operators to prepare for legalization
 
Gerry Gionet, the driving force behind the Canadian-based Geobet Gambling Network for tribal casino operators, has added his voice to those of other Indian leaders urging tribal casino operators to get their ducks in a row prior to US online gambling legalization .
 
Gionet warned Indian gambling enterprises that major Nevada gambling groups will be competing for their customers, saying:
 
“This is a critical time for tribal casino operators. They know they’ve got to move now so they aren’t left behind when the U.S. market opens up. They’ve got to protect themselves from the Nevada casino consortiums that will be raiding their customers online and eroding not only their land based income but also keeping them from successfully entering the online gambling business.”
 
Geobet offers a turnkey solution to a network of tribal and independent casino operators that complements and extends their land-based casino operations, enabling them to immediately start moving their land-based casino customers online.
 
The company's system includes i-gaming products from EveryMatrix, Microgaming, CTXM and Merge Networks.
 
GEObet.com, operated by Olympian Trading Limited and North Star Entertainment Limited, is the network’s flagship sportsbook, casino and poker site.
