A ballot initiative that would allow tribal casinos in California to have "real" craps and roulette (as opposed to the card-based kinds), as well as sports betting, has qualified for the November 2022 ballot. The initiative would also allow sports betting at some horse race tracks (presumably, Golden Gate Fields, Del Mar, Santa Anita, and Los Alamitos - "fairgrounds" such as Pleasanton are specifically prohibited, even though they may have existing satellite horse race betting outlets).

It is thought that heavy money in opposition will come from the state's card rooms, which will not be allowed to offer sports betting.

I have been waiting for this. At least sports betting. Interested to see what limitation may be placed on this and if 'in person' wagering will be the only way. My understanding was Tribal influence did not want the ability to work/interface with any online presence or application for smart phones. Glad I live close to Los al.

The way it is written, while the "purpose and intent" says that only "in person" betting will be allowed, the law itself only specifies this for race tracks, although it does say that sports wagering conducted by tribal casinos must be "on Indian lands."

Also note that, despite the fact that the legal age for betting on horse racing is 18, the legal age for betting on other sports will be 21.

That's because, to my understanding, if the state offers sports betting in any commercial (licensed/regulated) gambling establishment, then the tribes are automatically allowed to have it.

I don't know what you mean. I'm referring to Section 2701 (5) of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988, which states:

https://www.nigc.gov/general-counsel/indian-gaming-regulatory-act

Quote:

(5) Indian tribes have the exclusive right to regulate gaming activity on Indian lands if the gaming activity is not specifically prohibited by Federal law and is conducted within a State which does not, as a matter of criminal law and public policy, prohibit such gaming activity.



In other words, suppose a state authorizes Craps in casinos, they must allow the Tribal Casinos to offer Craps. In the event that a state allows for Class III slot machines, then they must also allow Native American casinos to have them---with or without a compact.

Technically, the gambling itself has nothing to do with it. The current age to get into most card rooms in California is 18, not to mention bingo (although everybody seems to turn a blind eye to under-18 players in most bingo halls). It is almost certainly because casinos, unlike horse race tracks, satellite wagering areas, and card rooms, almost always have bars or lounges inside the building, or cocktail waitresses bringing drinks to players, so California law requires that everybody inside has to be at least 21.
