 Seminoles Near 'Noteworthy' Expanded Gaming Deal with Florida, Add Sports Bets And More 


The feature is that DeSantis and the amazing clan have arrived at an arrangement to legitimize sports wagering. The arrangement would permit the clan's six gambling clubs across the state to join sportsbooks into their offices. They can likewise work online games wagering through associations with intuitive suppliers like DraftKings and FanDuel. 

Seminole Tribe of Florida Chairman Marcellus Osceola Jr. considered it an "notable understanding that concretes our organization with the state for quite a long time to come." 

The state's pari-mutuel card clubs and racinos would also be allowed to collaborate with online sportsbooks to profit by sports wagering. 

DeSantis in March told the racinos and pari-mutuel tracks and jai alai offices that his organization was "drawing near" to striking a games wagering manage the Seminoles. Yet, the lead representative, who is turning into a main 2024 official contender for the Republican Party, said he was haggling for the Florida public and not the clan. 

More Than Sports Betting 

The proposed understanding among DeSantis and the Seminole Tribe incorporates substantially more than simply sports wagering. Truth be told, if the assembly and US Interior Department endorse the arrangement, the new ancestral state agreement could open up Florida to business gambling club administrators. 

Under DeSantis' arrangement, the Seminoles would be allowed to develop to three new gambling clubs on their sovereign land. The front-runners for such offices would be in Tampa, Hollywood, and Brighton. 

The gaming extension reduced terms would permit the clan to join forces with organizations like Las Vegas Sands, MGM Resorts, and Wynn Resorts to deal with the gambling club and resort's tasks.

Legislators say they will make a solid effort to write the lead representative and clan's terms down and pass the new conservative. In the event that they neglect to do as such, House Speaker Chris Sprowls (R) says an exceptional meeting is probably going to be called. 

On the off chance that the Republican-controlled council sends the affirmed gaming minimal to DeSantis' work area and he signs, true to form, the report would go to the Interior Department for definite endorsement. 


Notwithstanding, there are a few worries that Florida citizens should approve any new endorsed betting game, for example, sports wagering, through a voting form choice. 

"Our position is that sports wagering is dependent upon alteration, and for any of the people who needed to say else, they are contending with themselves, not us," said John Sowinski of No Casinos in Florida, a guard dog bunch that goes against additional extension of betting.
