Florida gaming compact signed into law by Governor

A compact that will allow sports betting in Florida exclusively through the Seminole Tribe has been signed by Governor Ron DeSantis and will now advance to the United States Secretary of the Interior.


Senate Bill 2-A, which was signed by DeSantis on May 25, will allow sports betting in the state only through sportsbooks and online platforms operated by the Seminole Tribe, or in partnership with pari-mutuel betting operators.

The bill outlines that the Tribe will also be able to offer fantasy sports bets and certain class III games such as slot machines, banked card games, raffles, craps and roulette.
