Meeting Held Between Seminole Tribe and Gov. Rick Scott
On Monday representatives of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and Gov. Rick Scott
met to discuss an agreement that would allow the tribe to continue offering
blackjack at their casinos.
Under the proposed gaming compact, the tribe would share revenue with the state
over seven years that would result in $3 billion. The tribe would also be
allowed to offer other table games such as roulette and craps.
In 2006, the tribe bought 100 percent of the Hard Rock International brand. This
included the hotels and restaurants and the future casinos that were built.
Since 2010, $500 million has been spent by the tribe on their casinos.
A new gaming compact needs to be agreed upon in order for the Seminole's to
continue operating their Florida casinos. If a compact can not be agreed upon it
could mean that 3,700 people could be laid off.
