Closing Arguments over Seminole Casinos Due Wednesday
October 06, 2016
On Wednesday closing arguments are scheduled for the court case between the
Seminole Tribe of Florida and the state.
The outcome of the trial will determine if blackjack tables can continue to be
in operation at the Seminole owned casinos.
In 2010 an agreement was made between the tribe and the state that the Seminoles
would have exclusive rights to certain games. The state received close to $1.7
billion from the deal. However, the terms of the agreement expired last year.
Horse and dog racing tracks were given permission by the state to begin
operating blackjack and other card games similar to what was offered at the
tribal casinos. For this reason, the Seminoles believe that they should be
allowed to continue operating blackjack.
Confusion over the decisions are being blamed by state gaming regulators as the
reason behind the lawsuit.
