MADISON, Wis. - The Ho-Chunk Nation has been ordered to stop offering video poker games at its Madison casino.


The state Department of Justice argued in federal court that the game PokerPro is a Class III card game and therefore prohibited under the terms of the tribe's gaming compact. U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb agreed and Thursday ordered the Ho-Chunk to end the game within 30 days of any possible appeal.


The State Journal said the tribe argued PokerPro was legal because the player bet against each other and not against the house. But the state argued the game was more like blackjack or slots.
