The 30-year compact will allow the Cherokee to offer live table gaming, and it will provide for the state to receive a share of revenue generated from these new games. The compact calls for the state’s share of the revenue to be channeled directly to school districts. The school districts will be required to spend the funds on educating students in the classroom.
“It is unlike anything else that has ever been attempted,” said Erik Sneed, the tribe’s construction oversight manager for the expansion of Harrah's Cherokee Casino. “You’ve seen projects like this in Vegas or Atlantic City. Rarely have you ever seen it in Indian Country,” he told the Smoky Mountain News.
A legal order preventing enforcement of a recently passed state gambling law is stopping law enforcement from cracking down on new electronic-gambling machines that offer cash payouts, Buncombe County Sheriff Van Duncan and District Attorney Ron Moore said in a press conference today.
