LAS VEGAS, March 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bingo Nation Inc. (OTC:BLTO.QB) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard G. Hill to its Board of Directors.
Hill, age 64, served as chairman of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin from 2008 to 2001. He previously served as chairman from 1990-1993. Under Hill's first term as chairman, Oneida signed its first gaming compact with the State of Wisconsin.
From 1993 to 2001 Hill also served as chairman of the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA). Based in Washington, D.C., NIGA is a non-profit organization that has grown to 184 Indian tribes, representing the interests of tribal gaming enterprises. Under Hill’s leadership, NIGA became a nationally recognized voice on Indian gaming on legislative and entrepreneurial issues and established regulatory standards and policies for tribal governmental gaming nationwide. As the main national public relations spokesperson for the organization, Hill addressed the National Press Club, Harvard Law School, Arizona State Law School, and a variety of national and regional trade shows and other prestigious entities, encouraging Indian self-sufficiency, self-regulation, and integrity for gaming enterprises.
In October 2001 Hill became the first Gaming Hall of Fame inductee from the Indian gaming segment. He was recognized for his significant role in nurturing growth of tribal gaming. That Industry has now expanded into 497 gaming establishments operated by 244 tribes across 29 states.
Since 2001 a NIGA Chairman Emeritus, Hill formed The Hill Group LLC, to consult with various entities to identify economic development projects and partnerships in Indian Country along with equity/debt projects. He also formed RGH Holdings Inc., to assist and develop real estate both on and off reservations, including the development of the first ever off-reservation, tribal consortium hotel investment, located in Washington, D.C. The Residence Inn by Marriott where RGH identified and negotiated the $12 million tribal equity participation is a $42 million extended-stay hotel project.
David Matheson commented: “We are pleased to welcome and honored to have Rick join the Board. He is to my knowledge not only well-respected but a true team builder throughout Indian Country. He is without doubt our greatest ambassador having served as a prominent leader in the development of tribal gaming for over three decades.”
