“The Tribe’s I-gaming poker website, PrivateTable.com, accessible to adult California residents who register through the website, will be a legal alternative to the unregulated, illegal Internet-based gambling websites, operated from off-shore locations by operators of questionable character,” the tribe said in a press release.
Marco “Agent Marco” Valerio, the face and voice of QuadJacks.com, told the press release was handed to him by Atty. Martin Owens, the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel’s legal adviser.
According to Santa Ysabel Gaming Commission chairman and spokesman Dave Vialpando, the Tribe stood by the effort by the Legislature to enact interactive gambling legislation in the State. However, they decided to rely on the tribal sovereignty and the provisions of the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) to offer I-poker from the Tribe’s reservation.
“Santa Ysabel Interactive currently has no plans to offer Internet-based slot machines or banked-games through its website, PrivateTable.com, but will consider offering other gaming consistent with IGRA,” Vialpando expressed.
The chairman added that they are looking forward to the opportunity to expand upon the lipay Nation of Santa Ysabel’s successful track record in the regulated gaming industry.
“The Gaming Commission has applied its years of experience to ensure the integrity of the games when designing the framework for Santa Ysabel Interactive’s I-poker website,” said Vialpando.
The Santa Ysabel Band of Diegueño Indians in partnership with Canada’s Kahnawake Gaming Commission offers both cash-game and tournament Texas Hold’em, Omaha and Seven Card Stud in PrivateTable.com.
