3 Apr 2017

Florida StateOne of the most beneficial gambling bill’s was passed the previous days in Florida State. This was an expansion gambling bill and the Florida Senate backed it without any big disagreements making its coming to life difficult. That bill will lead to a massive increase in the number of casinos, slot machines, and dog and horse racetrack facilities. Senate members voted 32-6 supporting the new bill, which proposed a huge expansion of the state’s gambling industry, which by its turn will bring more money to the State. The bill would allow pari-mutuels around Florida to host live racing events whilst keeping their casino-style games. Furthermore, it would add slot machines in eight counties outside South Florida.

Moreover, the Florida senate also passed a key vote regarding HB 7037, which will now go to the full House. The bill had been filed in the Legislature’s lower house and was voted 19-11 in favour of by the Commerce Committee. According to that bill, no slot machine would be installed in pari-mutuel facilities and no craps and roulette tables would be added at Seminole casinos. This bill is going to be voted by the United States senate as well.
