There are eight American Indian tribes that own casinos in Oregon. These casinos are built and operated under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1988. The law created the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) to regulate Indian gaming in Oregon.
Four Federally-recognized Oregon tribes worked with the NIGC to build casinos on "off-reservation" land. This is land purchased as "restored tribes" and transferred into federal trust for purposes of gaming. The four tribes and their casinos include: Grand Ronde - Spirit Mountain Casino (Grand Ronde); Coos/Lower Umpqua/Siuslaw - Three Rivers Casino (Florence); Coquille - The Old Mill Casino (North Bend); and Siletz Indians - Chinook winds (Lincoln City)
The Gaming Division of the Oregon State Police has approved the following list of casino games for Oregon's tribal casinos. Each casino offers some or all of the games on the list.
Blackjack : Double Deck, Single Deck, Slingo Bonus, Field Gold 21, Progressive, Royal Match 21, Spanish 21

A Siskiyou County tribe is seeking federal recognition from the U.S. government. Residents from the city of Ashland are ready to express their concerns of a possible casino project if the tribe is granted the recognition from the federal government.
The Ruffey Rancheria is located in central Siskiyou County, California. They are descended from Indian villages from that area. In 1958 Congress removed the tribe's federal recognition. Now they are actively trying to restore their status.
In July last year the "Ruffey Rancheria Restoration Act of 2017" was introduced. House Resolution 3535 was presented by Congressman Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale, California. The act would return over 440 acres of land back to tribe. It would also restore their federal recognition with the U.S. government.
The bill states that if the approved, the tribe could be allowed to develop a casino on their land.
The exact boundary and location for the proposed tribal land has not yet been determined. However, it could possibly put a casino located in Sothern Oregon if approved.
The city of Ashland is located near the possible location for the tribal land. There is a radius of 25 miles around that land that could obtain casino designation. This has raised concerns for the city and its residents.
So far this year the bill has not progressed.
A letter of concerns of the possible casino could be sent to the federal government on behalf of the city. Rich Rosenthal is the City Councilor for Ashland. He stated that he would like to send a letter if progress is made in the tribal recognition.
Currently the tribe has not contacted the city.
