Currently there is no known date set for sports betting to be legalized in California. However one tribe has begun putting the gaming infrastructure in place for when that day comes.
The United Auburn Indian Community has partnered with MGM GVC Interactive to be in place for when the game is legalized. The announcement of the partnership was made on Tuesday in a press release.
The tribe owns the Thunder Valley Casino Resort.
Under the partnership retail and mobile sports betting will be offered. As well as online casino and poker.
Recently MGM made an arrangement with the National Basketball Association. This will also benefit the tribe.
Currently states have passed sports betting gaming regulations to allow the game in operation. A measure to allow sports betting in California is expected to be on the ballot in 2020.
