Maverick Gaming challenges tribal sports betting monopoly in Washington State
Maverick Gaming, a cardroom operator, is challenging what it views as a tribal sports betting monopoly in Washington
Maverick Gaming, a cardroom operator, has filed an opening brief in the United States Court of Appeals, contesting what it perceives as a tribal sports betting monopoly in Washington state.
The operator argues that the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) is being misapplied, granting tribes exclusive rights to sports betting.
While tribes view Maverick's lawsuit as a direct attack on tribal compacts, Maverick Gaming's CEO, Eric Persson, has stated his firm's intention to offer sports betting at its properties, whether through a Supreme Court ruling or legislative changes.
