The legality of electronic poker tables is being questioned at the Ho-Chunk's Dejope Gaming bingo hall. Currently state law approves games where patrons bet against each other and not the gaming facility. Unlike in blackjack and slots the state believes that poker games and electronic poker tables go against this rule.

The tribe believes that the electronic games are legal since the guests bet against each other. This is a new game that has been offered to their visitors and the tribe feels it was done legally. The 8 tables for electronic poker were placed in a different area of the facility. Away from the other 1,100 electronic bingo machines that are allowed.

The Ho-Chunk tribe and the state are due to meet in arbitration.
