Florida moving into online betting would generate billions for the State and Seminole Tribe
Everyone knows Florida for its warm weather and sunshine year round.
Did you know Florida also has a number of casinos, poker rooms and racetracks? (some call them racinos)
Well it does, and these Florida casinos have seen some major improvements and gaming expansion upgrades to both of the Hard Rock Casinos located in Tampa, FL and Hollywood, FL. The recent casino expansion in Florida comes at a time when the entire gambling industry is being reinvented.
Across us US, land based casinos are going on-line and setting up virtual sportsbooks and online casinos.
Online Gambling Florida
Is online gambling legal in Florida?
Florida hasn’t made any official announcements quite yet about their official view of internet gambling.
However, given the momentum of sports wagering legalization that’s sweeping across the US, states are catching on quickly and racing to pass online gambling laws to regulate internet wagering on sports games and events.
There are several casinos located in the state of Florida. All of them are run by the Seminole Indian Tribe and they already generate billions in income for the state.
A deal between the Seminoles and the state to legalize and regulate Florida online gambling sites would be very good news for the state’s economy. It would also be great for gamblers that want to play at FL online casinos for real money and bet on sports from state regulated websites.
The Florida Casino Expansion
The Seminole’s have recently invested billions into their two brand new casinos in Florida.
The Hard Rock Casino located in Tampa has recently finished their 2 billion dollar renovation and let me tell you, the new casino is beautiful. The Tampa Hard Rock Casino, which is located at 5223 Orient Rd, Tampa, FL 33610, looks and feels like an elegant high roller’s casino that you would find in Las Vegas or Macau.
While the newly renovated casino in Tampa is massive and sure to meet everyone’s gaming delights, its the Guitar Hotel and Hard Rock Casino Resort in Hollywood that’s generating all the buzz. It’s the world’s first (and only) guitar shaped hotel and it looks amazing. You can visit the new Hollywood Hard Rock Casino at 1 Seminole Way, Davie, FL 33314.
Will Florida be next to regulate online gambling, allowing sports betting, poker, lotto and casino gaming?
It seems probable that Florida could become one of the next states to take gaming to the web. Florida online gambling sites are sure to be a major hit with Floridians and the millions of tourists visiting the state each year.
With massive financial upside potential and established regulations for people betting on the net in FL, there are a number of reasons why Florida could be the next state in USA to allow e-gambling.
First, the state’s legislators must pass bills to approve sports betting in the state.
There’s been a lot of buzz and rumors that the state’s Government is in discussions with the Seminole Tribe about regulating sports gambling in Florida. Other news reports have said the state is considering regulating sports betting outside of its current gaming deal which gives the Seminole Indian Tribe exclusivity over all forms of casino gambling in FL.
