Internet Poker: Morongo Tribe Push Claiming 21 Members

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Last Wednesday, 21 tribes joined Morongo Band of Mission Indians' spokesman for a new online poker consortium private signing ceremony. After the lunchtime ceremony, Patrick Dorinson said, "We have 21 tribes at this point. We anticipate by the end of the day we will have quite a few more." “We have some tribes with some substantial gaming in the state,” he added. 

The letter that was sent last Tuesday by the tribe mentioned an invitation to California Intertribal Intrastate Poker Consortium membership for tribes interested. This consortium will be part of the two LLCs that will be affiliated with California Online Poker Association (COPA).

18th will the last day to join, however attendance is not compulsory. It also stated that for some tribes the full-fledged membership in the group deadline has long passed, “Please note that the April 30, 2010 deadline for Non-Compacted Tribes to qualify for the guaranteed minimum share of the tribal LLC’s profits had not been extended.”

Complication starts when the legislature has not approved online poker in California though.
