“Good government practices require the Idaho Lottery to be transparent with respect to the services we contract for,” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. “With a contract of this importance, we believe it is incumbent upon us to do our due diligence and examine the opportunities this may present.  It is our fiduciary responsibility when providing economic opportunity for Idaho businesses to find the best value for the people of Idaho while maintaining the highest quality standards in our industry to communicate our value proposition to our players.”

“This Agreement builds on the successful LT-3 pilot program we commenced in November 2013 in Missouri,” said Richard Weil, Chairman and CEO of Diamond Game’s parent company, INNOVA Gaming Group. “It represents both an extension and an expansion of the current pilot program, which to this point was run exclusively in veterans and fraternal halls. By adding LBD locations, the Missouri Lottery has offered us an opportunity to demonstrate the broad appeal of the LT-3 in non-traditional gaming venues, while bolstering revenues to small businesses, non-profits, and education in the State.” “The pilot program has been a success,” added May Scheve Reardon, Executive Director, Missouri Lottery. “We expect that introduction of LT-3s into select LBD locations will build on that success.  Lottery players will enjoy a fun, new product, while local businesses will benefit from increased visits by patrons, and the State’s education fund will receive much-needed additional revenue.”

Supreme Court precedent Rhode Island employed a similar legal strategy to win a 2009 U.S. Supreme Court decision against the Narragansett Indian Tribe, which had sought to build casinos on its territory. What's different is that Rhode Island challenged the U.S. Secretary of Interior's decision in federal court under a claim through the Administrative Procedure Act, a law that allows federal courts to review agency decisions, the appeals court ruled. Alabama did not raise an APA claim in its filing. Even if Alabama raised the claim, it would have been too late due to the six-year statute of limitation on all APA challenges, the appeals court ruled. The last chance Alabama had to raise a claim about the final land transfer to the Poarch tribe ended by 2002. As such, the Poarch tribe enjoys the benefits of tribal immunity from state control, according to the appeals court.
