Phil Ivey signs deal with Pala Indian Tribe

Professional poker player, Phil Ivey, is rumoured to have signed a new business venture with the Pala Indian Tribe. The player has negotiated an agreement with the Southern California India Tribe and their aim is to offer state regulated online and poker casino games. Jim Ryan, formerly the chief executive officer of, will be the head of this new project.

As online gambling in the state of California hasn’t been regulated yet, the deal is currently limited to potential customers. If the state legalizes online betting, California will become the most important market of this industry in the United States. As for now, only Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware allow some sort of internet gambling.
