Poker Tribe Gets Isle of Man License

This week the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma made waves when their PokerTribe.com site was awarded a gaming license from the Isle of Man.

The move is interesting as it makes the Native American tribe an international player. The tribe works with Universal Entertainment Group out of Florida, and has been working to implement a real-money poker solution for the past few years. The licensing isn't without controversy, as the owner of UEG is the subject of FTC complaints in the USA in the past.

The licensing will allow PokerTribe to start offering real money games in the fall, with the tribe also revealing that they're working on selling the software to an internationally known entity. An Isle of Man license would allow the group to offer services to punters located outside of the United States.

PokerTribe has struggled to get off the ground for years, and there's a lot of questions related to how the site will actually get players to come to their site, especially when major spots like PokerStars, Full Tilt, and 888 offer superior services.

That's definitely a great think for the Poker Tribe. Getting a licence can be very stressful so I am sure they are excited about these news.
