geobetnetwork-160.jpg11 February 2013 (Tsuu Tina Nation, Alberta, Canada) – Tribal-owned GEObet Network is to host the Oklahoma Tribes & GEObet iGaming Conference on February 18th. The event, to be held at the Cherokee Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma, will serve up invaluable insight and practical advice for Native Tribal Nations on establishing and managing successful iGaming operations.

As well as expert panel discussions and Q&A sessions, iGaming speakers will include Claude Sumner, Ambassador for the GEObet Network, John Danner, the network’s Advocate, and Walter Janvier, Vice-President of North American Business Investment and Relations at GEObet. A keynote speech will be delivered at the one-day event by Bernard Shepherd, Chief Executive Officer of Northern Bear Casino, which became the first real-money North American online tribal casino when it launched in November.

Gerry Gionet, founder of the GEObet Network said: “This conference offers a tremendous opportunity for tribal casino groups to hear from industry experts as well as share ideas and business strategies when it comes to making the important move into the world of iGaming. We expect a strong turnout from the Tribes of Oklahoma and also from the neighboring states. We are extending this invitation to all tribal and first nations groups across USA and Canada.”

Gionet will showcase GEObet’s portfolio of casino products, including award-winning casino slots with the highest jackpot payouts in the world, to poker, bingo and other games. He will also demonstrate how tribes, even those without a land-based casino, can enter into online gaming under the GEObet Network without the need for up-front costs or major investments as well as how to navigate the path from free-play to real-money games.

Experts and business leaders from online gaming will discuss where, when and how fast iGaming is progressing and how it relates to the 36 Tribes of Oklahoma and elsewhere. Key topics on the agenda include the status of iGaming internationally, legal issues for free-play and real-money play, and techniques to achieve Tribal Nation goals.

Gionet pinpoints 2013 as being a critical period for Tribal casinos. “Nevada casinos are on the cusp of launching their businesses online so it’s imperative that tribal nations are able to protect their interests and compete on an equal footing by offering customers the opportunity to play in their casinos on the internet.”

The GEObet Network, is operated by OlympianGroup.Eu under agreement with North Star Ent Ltd is licensed in Malta, Curacao and Kahnawake, is an online gambling technology and services provider that strives to bring Native American tribal casinos online in order to compliment their land-based operations.
