It has come to the attention of the Navajo Nation Gaming Regulatory Office (NNGRO) that several Navajo Nation Tribal Members are operating online bingo games via Social Media. The NNGRO has full regulatory authority over all gaming activities for the Navajo Nation.
Please be aware that online gaming activity violates the Navajo Nation Gaming Ordinance, the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, and the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act. The NNGRO is authorized to issue a Notice of Violation to each individual for conducting illegal gaming. The Notice of Violation could subject you to, among other State and Federal law penalties, fines of up to $10,000 for each game you conduct.
These games played over Social Media for money or anything of monetary value may seem harmless, but they violate Navajo Nation, State and Federal Laws and Regulations.
