Casino cleared for third time in major victory for Ponca Tribe

CARTER LAKE, Iowa — The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska wins again, with the National Indian Gaming Commission deciding to clear the Prairie Flower Casino.

The National Indian Gaming Commission ruled in the tribe’s favor for the third time.

The latest decision further cements the tribe’s right to conduct gaming on its sovereign land in Carter Lake, Iowa, and disposes of the last issue raised by plaintiffs in their case in District Court, according to tribe representatives.
