The private gaming network, known as Casino Gateway Network (CGN) and backed by the legal opinion of the National Indian Gaming Commission, allows players to play on a private Wide Area Progressive (WAP) network, and, therefore, it is not considered illegal online gaming according to ATIG.

Donald L. Bailey, chief executive officer of ATIG said, "Our Indian version of the CGN, called the ‘Tribal Gaming Network’ (‘TGN’) offers an immediate and legal solution to Indian casinos nationwide, providing the largest online poker network in the U.S. This is a significant milestone for ATIG and Cake, and will become an immediate economical shot in the arm for Tribes and states facing deficits nationwide.”
