A lawsuit by the Quinault Indian Nation accuses Valve for benefiting from operating illegal gambling in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The esports gambling sites, which were responsible for the exchange of these skins, are the subject of the lawsuit. The Quinault Indian Nation claims in its lawsuit that Valve was well aware of the fraud and even facilitated these websites.

The Quinault Indian Nation filed a lawsuit against Valve for gambling for years without a license. Since the Quinault Indian Nation is responsible for a casino in Washington – and Valve’s headquarters are located there. The plaintiffs are now demanding damages from the gaming company.

In 2013, Valve introduced numerous skins for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive weapons that players could obtain by opening loot boxes. The keys to these boxes could be purchased directly from the Steam Store. According to the Quinault Indian Nation, it was in their opinion a modified version of a slot machine on the Internet.

The Indian company has filed a lawsuit that the people in charge of Stream knew about the bots that worked for these websites. Yet Valve decided not to do anything about it. The Quinault Indian Nation also claims that Valve even supported these websites with their technology while benefiting financially. If Valve actually offered to gamble, the company would have to pay two percent of its revenue to a fund specifically for casinos in Washington. Valve executives have not commented on this situation yet. We will know in a few days, what the future holds for Valve in Washington. We believe that Valve will have to pay a healthy fine for supporting the culprits in the first place.
