There are different categories of gambling – designated into classes that organize everything from Bingo to slot machines to Las Vegas-style card games. The terms of tribal gaming offerings are codified in compacts the State negotiates with each tribe. In Washington, we believe restrictions on gaming that give tribes exclusive opportunities not afforded to the non-tribal commercial gaming sector violate IGRA and the United States Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection. For this reason, we have filed a lawsuit, asking that Washington’s application of IGRA be struck down as contrary to the statute and the federal Constitution.
