Oklahoma tribe’s gambling website sees more delays

The Associated Press and The Oklahoman - May 23, 2017 10:55 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A gambling website created by the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma that was originally planned to launch in 2016 is seeing more setbacks because of a federal investigation.
The Oklahoman reports the venture is backed by Universal Entertainment Group for $10 million.
But Universal is being investigated by the National Indian Gaming Commission for a failed deal with the Concho-based Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes. The tribes paid Universal $9.5 million to develop a gambling website in 2012 that never launched. A 2014 FBI investigation found no wrongdoing.
The commission says it can’t comment on potential or ongoing investigations.
David McCullough, an attorney for the Iowa Tribe, says the tribe is optimistic its site, Pokertribe.com, will eventually launch. McCullough says the Iowa Tribe doesn’t expect the latest investigation to affect its website.
