On Tuesday, October 9, the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) hosted a tribal leader’s reception at the 2018 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The theme of the reception was honoring the outstanding leaders and advocates of the tribal government gaming industry. Among those being honored was Commissioner Chairman of the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe Gaming Commission, Rudy Wambsgans III.
“The fact that Indian gaming by many metrics has eclipsed commercial gaming in its share of the gaming landscape is significant and due to the regulation and innovation of Indian country,” said Jonodev Chaudhuri, Chairman of National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC). “It took leadership and warriors for many, many decades to make that possible.”
The National Indian Gaming Association is an inter-tribal association of federally recognized Indian Tribes united with the mission of protecting and preserving tribal sovereignty and the ability of Tribes to attain economic self-sufficiency through gaming and other forms of economic development.
