Professor Spilde reveals how gaming has evolved, and continues to evolve, with the times.
Enjoy this one on one interview with Ms. Kate Spilde who is a Professor at San Diego State University (SDSU) and the Endowed Chair of the Sycuan Institute on Tribal Gaming.
In this informative interview conducted by Native Business Founder and Publisher, Gary Davis, Professor Spilde provides valuable perspectives on Indian gaming, highlighting how Tribes have leveraged their sovereign decision-making to enter the gaming industry, and how they continue to do so today, most notably through opening sports betting operations in states where it is otherwise illegal.
Gaming was once considered a land-based venture, but the emergence of online gaming and sports betting is making the industry’s geographic borders more nebulous, and thus economic opportunities more broad and open-ended. From expanding casino operations into hotels and conference centers that then became destination vacation and convention spots, to today, growing online gaming empires and opening more and more gaming attractions outside of Tribal lands and even across seas.
Professor Spilde reveals how gaming has evolved, and continues to evolve, with the times. She also touches on new trends and emerging opportunities, and offer a forecast for the future of Tribal gaming.
