The path to Florida sports betting has a few more twists in it yet.
A theoretical deal was reached between the Seminole Tribe and state of Florida, but not before one final obstacle: getting things ready for launch on Friday when their revised compact goes into effect under which individuals will be able place mobile bets via servers located at tribe lands or any other facility where they host games registered with gaming authorities (this includes horse tracks). However reports suggest that while negotiations were progressing smoothly until recently – this may no longer apply after all; we’ll see what happens over there soon enough!
It was reported this week that there would be at least a month delay for FL online sports betting – both on the Seminoles’ home turf of Florida soil and anywhere else around America.
The Orlando Sentinel revealed Gary Bitner, spokesperson from The Tribe (as they are affectionately known) told their South Florida counterparts “We expect live betting to start by mid December.”
It is no secret that Hard Rock has been looking to get into the online gambling market. So when they announced their digital division, it came as little surprise that they would be working with an established company like LSR. These two entities are known for creating some of America’s most iconic consumer products and operating under one roof makes perfect sense.”
For many, the thought of legal casinos is appealing. Legal gambling on Native American land has become a reality with six states now legalizing it and Florida being one them. However, opponents have filed multiple lawsuits against this revised compact that allowed sports betting in order to stop its legalization as well which includes anti-gambling group No Casinos along local pari-mutuel tracks who are arguing centered around where mobile bets should fall – if at all?
The tribe claims they’re located within their territory so does comply federal law while opponents disagree claiming instead place bettors could still be apprehended outside these borders even though there would not technically violate any state or tribal laws (and since most everything else concerning online gaming falls under interstate commerce).
The future of Florida’s casinos is uncertain, but No Casinos president John Sowinski told the Orlando Sentinel that tribes should be wary investing in a product may not still exist by then. Not only do they have to worry about legal disputes over whether or not their investments will be refunded with interest – there are also external operators like FanDuel and Draftkings who want access into this market too! Those companies filed for an initiative which will put statewide mobile sports betting on next year’s ballot if passed; however it must first pass through both houses chambers where representatives debate its merits before voting takes place at either State Capital Building (Tallahassee ).
