“Florida strikes historic gaming compact
with Seminole tribe”
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — Florida reached a historic gaming contract with the Seminole Tribe of Florida that will allow sports betting in the Sunshine State.
“Kudos to Gambling Guv Ron DeSantis for landmark sports betting breakthrough”
In case you missed it, DeSantis signed a landmark gambling deal Friday with the Seminole Tribe of Florida that could and should bring legalized sports betting to Florida and generate countless billions of dollars in revenue for our state. Of course, the deal still needs to be passed by the Florida Legislature, which will take up the issue in a special session that starts May 17.
“Is sports betting coming to Florida?
Odds are better than ever”
Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Seminole Tribe of Florida have reached a consensus on key issues, and a major agreement will be announced in “short order,” one lobbyist with knowledge of the talks said. The Legislature would most likely take up the issue during a special session next month or in the summer.
