Florida Lawmakers Consider Expanding Seminole Tribe Casino Games Portfolio

Two lawmakers have expressed support to extending the portfolio of the Seminole tribe casinos, which currently offer only slots and blackjack. The Senate Gaming Committee Chair recently mentioned that the state could stand to benefit if Seminole tribes are permitted to offer craps and roulette.

According to the Seminole compact, the tribe can offer all types of casino games except craps and roulette in its casino properties. The compact includes a provision that requires to be changed the following year. According to the deal, the state is guaranteed at least $1 billion of the tribe’s profits over a period of five years.

Rick Scott, the governor of Florida, said that he will take all the time required to negotiate the best deal for the state. The governor’s committee is planning to change gambling laws in a big way. This could mean new casino resorts for the state.

Gary Bitner, a spokesman for the Seminole Tribe, said that the tribe is quite happy with its portfolio and does not require extra games. At the same time, he hinted that the addition of new games to the Seminole portfolio could generate new jobs for the people of Florida as casinos will have to hire and train new dealers.
