Proposed Bill for Slot Machines at Bonita Springs Casino
April 24, 2016
Four years ago a casino in Bonita Springs was approved. However construction
continues to be halted by state legislation.
The state and the casino owners have not been able to come to terms over the
operation of slot machines.
As of now, Florida law only allows certain games to be operated off of tribal
land. Slot machines are only allowed at tribal casinos. Six casinos are owned by
the Miccosukee and Seminole tribes. However, state leaders are trying to find a
compromise that would allow non tribal owned casinos to also operate slots.
The Bonita Springs casino is supported by many residents. Tax money that would
be paid to the city is the main interest in the project.
The bill that would allow for slot machines at non tribal casinos will be
decided on in March 2017 by the State House.
