Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate updates Class III gaming compact

The Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate has negotiated changes to its Class III gaming compact with the state of South Dakota. The agreement, if approved at the state and federal level, authorizes the tribe to offer up to 1,000 slot machines at the Dakota Sioux Casino. That's an increase from the 750 machines authorized by the tribe's 2012 compact.
