August 1995: RUMSEY INDIAN v WILSON
This case was of major significance and ruled on the issue of whether the tribe can have slot machines because the lottery operates similar games. This case was decided for the tribe, but appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Ninth circuit held for the state and decided that Indian tribes cannot offer banked games such as slots.
