Alaskan Tribal Gaming

The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) oversees the operations of tribal gaming in Alaska.

In August 2008, the Metlakatla tribe made an effort to add a five-line amendment to its gaming ordinance. This change would have made one-touch machines legitimate Class II machines. This reclassification would have changed the standards for gaming machines for all tribes, not just for those in Alaska. The state of Oklahoma challenged the appeal because of the effects the reclassification would have had on its gaming industry. If the appeal had been successful, thousands of machines currently played in Oklahoma would have become illegal without a compact with the state of Oklahoma for Class III machines. Later that same August, the Metlakatla tribe withdrew its appeal, preventing the NIGC from taking further actions on the matter and stopping any potential precedent the change in law might have set.

On 5 June 2010, NIGC chairman Phil Hogen denied allowance of "one-touch" bingo games for Class II gaming tribes as actual electronic Class III games of chance.
