The legalization of online casinos in the US has gone viral. Other states are now considering the regulation of the market within its borders. However, in Connecticut, it is different. The state has not yet revealed whether it is going to take the same path or not. Nevertheless, its prime casino, the Foxwood Resort, is gearing up early at this time in anticipation of the possible regulation. In fact, it already has secured a deal with the Game Account Network to provide them the Internet based gaming system to be offered to all US players. Foxwood Resort is run by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.
However, the agreement only includes the delivery of free to play platforms. Both parties signed a deal that covers B2C and B2B components. Connecticut does not allow casinos online yet, so the new business partners will initially launch a play for fun site. The main goal is to come up with a solid player database in case the state lawmakers change their mind. Game Account will work with MPTN to provide the other Indian tribe operated casinos with turnkey gaming solutions. According to reports, the resort’s website already has a recorded of about one million visitors every month. This simply means that there are a lot of players out there who are feeling the itch to play online through the resort’s website.
Furthermore, the gaming site to be set will be designed to give way to a smooth transition from free play to real money games. As soon as the state legislators take a U-turn and allow gambling online in the state, then Foxwood will be the first in line. MPTN believes that it is not going to take a long time before Internet casino regulation comes to the state as there are already three states that implemented such a law. While Nevada only allows web poker, Delaware and New Jersey will take all casino floor games to the virtual world. However, the blooming partnership between MPTN and Game Account is yet to be approved by the state regulatory board. Once it is finalized, the search for Internet gaming partnership will come to an end for MPTN. The MPTN Chairman, Rodney Butler, believes that Game Account will help them put their penciled plans into reality with their shared vision.
