The Quinault Nation in Washington State has filed a lawsuit against Valve, a renowned global gaming giant, for illegal gambling.
“Valve is well aware of the skins gambling that goes on, is well aware that skins have real world cash value, which has increased their popularity and value, and actively encourages and facilitates skins gambling,” according to the suit, filed.
In 2016, a judge dismissed a class action lawsuit against Valve over alleged illegal gambling with Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
The company has long insisted it does not maintain relationships with third party gambling operators. In 2016, the company sent cease and desist letters to 40 of its streaming partners, severing ties with some.
