    Yeah, but isn't craps a Class III? OK, maybe some variation on Class II, but in MT, where I've been, Class II does not include table games, except poker, I think. Anyway, my experience at Northern Quest casino in Spokane was comparable to Vegas tables. I saw no difference, except maybe for excellent competency and professionalism of the crew at NQ. You can get some real dogs in Vegas.

    Under IGRA, craps (and house banked games) is considered Class III. When I mentioned (historically) operating within Class II gaming confines, I qualified it for EGDs. Native American casinos that didn't have a compact with the state couldn't offer Class III gaming, so they became adept at innovation, creating EGDs that complied with Class II requirements but looked and played like Class III counterparts. Many of the tribes in Washington have since negotiated compacts with the state for Class III gaming. Most recently, the Appendix X2 Addendum was approved by Bureau of Indian Affairs in May 2015.

    The NorthWest Casinos wars is just heating up. The Oregon Tribe, that reports a 41% sock in the nose, bought the old Portland Grayhound Track last year. Word is that it is being torn down and by the end of summer it should be cleared for new construction. This was tried in the past though then the Tribes pumped millions of dollars against any legalizing gambling in Oregon and shut down all attempts to legalize any type of gambling. However, now that the Tribes are looking at a massive loss, they want to legalize gambling so they can build in Portland. The issue is that State Law says that a Tribe can only own ONE casino, so now they are shopping for corporate partners.

    My hunch is that the State legislators like the money the bribe money they get from the Tribes, and terrified that Ilani will also harm the State Lottery, will most likely agree to casinos in Portland, as much like we see in In New York city with Resort World - all machines including machine versions of table games.

    Somewhere here there is a 'done deal' and I am just trying to figure it out.

    Look at what has happened in Maryland. That state was very late to the game in legalizing casino gambling, but it is quickly catching up in the casino arms race with nearby states (NJ, WV, PA, DE) that have had legalized casino gambling years before. Same with Ohio (competing against established casinos in IN, MI, WV, PA).
