FL Gaming Officials ask Seminoles When table games will end
July 27, 2015
The Seminole Tribe of Florida are being asked when card games will stop
operations at their casinos by state gaming officials.
A letter was sent to their tribal chairman, James Billie, on Monday by the
state's gaming regulator Ken Lawson.
The gaming compact between the tribe and state is set to expire this week.
In the letter, Billie was asked to meet with Florida gaming officials to discuss
the Seminole's plans.
Within 90 days of the expiration of the compact, the tribe must stop operating
The tribe has already announced that they will continue the operation of their
table games since they believe that the compact was violated by the state.
Federal law has a process outlined with how to handle disputes between tribes
and states. The Seminole's intend to follow the outline while they continue
offering the table games at their casinos.
