LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Great Luck LLC, a new interactive gaming (i-Gaming) enterprise, launched at a private event and unveiled its first-to-market electronic Class II i-Gaming platform. Led by experienced and highly regarded native American gaming experts, Great Luck is uniquely focused on the technological development, marketing and legal deployment of a full suite of i-Gaming products and services designed to benefit sovereign Indian nations and other affiliate partners.
The new company unveiled a free play beta version of its offering prior the Global Gaming Expo 2013, and will be demonstrating the beta throughout the week. The Alturas Indian Rancheria Tribe in Northern California is expected to be the first to formally deploy Great Luck’s platform when it launches a bingo offering in the fourth quarter of this year. It will be the first web browser-enabled, nationally accessible i-Gaming destination in the United States.
“At a time when online focused gaming developments are accelerating in New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware, the introduction of our company and our alternative web browser-based technology represents a meaningful, nationally deployable solution for the industry,” said Joseph Valandra, CEO of Great Luck, a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe of South Dakota and former National Indian Gaming Commission (“NIGC”) Chief of Staff. “We believe our i-Gaming technology will play a significant role in transforming the i-Gaming experience.”
Great Luck’s i-Gaming platform centers around a proprietary Virtual Private Network Assisted Play System (VPNAPS), allowing registered users located anywhere it is legal to gain access to electronic Class II games, such as bingo, and expanding access to Class II games that reside on a Tribe’s trust land. VPNAPS will be accessible via any web browser on any computer or Android and iOS mobile phone and tablet devices and is specifically created for use by all federally recognized Indian tribes.
Game play is achieved via “proxy play,” in which the VPNAPS connects game participants to servers located on Indian lands. Once a player is properly registered and approved, the VPNAPS creates a “Proxy” that executes game play on behalf of the game participant, thus ensuring that all actual game play is taking place within sovereign Indian lands.
The placement and operation of Great Luck’s i-Gaming platforms is designed to comply with all regulatory requirements. Through the licensing and application of its VPNAPS, Great Luck is focused on partnering with Indian tribes nationwide and committed to transforming the legal, Class II gaming experience for millions of enthusiasts globally.
“Great Luck is at the epicenter of creating and implementing a system that will generate real revenue that benefits all our proprietary relationships,” added Great Luck COO JR Mathews, who is a past Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Quapaw Tribe and also served two terms as Treasurer of the National Indian Gaming Association in Washington D.C.
