The sports betting provision is expected to draw immediate court challenges.

Because the Florida-Seminoles gaming compact is changed to add sports betting and new table games, the U.S. National Indian Gaming Commission must sign off on the agreements. That process will take two months or more. Sports betting is expected to start around October 15th.

Big Win for Seminoles and Disney - Voters approve anti-casino Amendment 3

November 07, 2018

Amendment 3, the anti-casinos initiative was approved by Florida voters. Over $24 million was spent by the Seminole Tribe and over $20 million was spent by Disney in support of the measure.

Under the new law the development of new casinos in the future would not be done under the Florida government approval. Instead approval would have to be made from a statewide ballot vote. Regardless of where the casino would be built and regardless of what area the Florida voter resides in, the voters would have a say.

Disney supported the measure to eliminate tourism competition and maintain Florida's family friendly image. The Seminoles also supported the measure to eliminate gaming competition. The law also does not apply to casinos built on tribal land.

Opposed to the measure was the Miami Dolphins. This was due to the possibility of sports betting not being legalized in the state.

Disney and Seminoles team up against casino expansion

August 15, 2018

A constitutional amendment that would change Florida casino laws is being supported by both the Seminole Tribe of Florida and Disney Worldwide Services. This decision on the proposed change would happen this November.

On July 30 both the Seminoles and Disney gave the political committee, Voters In Charge, $10 million to give support in the constitutional amendment that would prevent the future of gaming expansion in the state. As of August 03, the committee had $20 million in cash. Since 2017 over $14.6 million has been contributed by Disney to the group per the released finance records. $11.7 million has been given from the Seminoles. Voters In Charge has received 99 percent of their donations from these two groups.

Voters In Charge is a nonprofit political group. The amount of required signatures needed to place the measure on the November ballot were collected from the group.

The proposed bill is known as Amendment 3. It is also known as The Voter Control of Gambling Amendment. In order for it to pass, 60 percent of the voters would need to be in favor of the measure. Amendment 3 would give the voters the right to authorize and decide on future gaming expansion. The Legislature and the governor would not have as much power over the decision over how many and what types of games would be allowed.

The Seminoles are supporting the amendment in order to prevent slot machines from being installed and operated in eight counties. Currently only Florida tribal owned casinos and casinos in Broward and Miami-Dade counties are the only legal areas for slot machines to be in operation.

$300 million is being paid annually to the state by the Seminoles as part of an arrangement that would prevent other counties from offering slot gaming.

Seminole Gaming and the Seminole Tribe of Florida are striving to make a conscientious effort in their practices of sustainability.

This has been on a trend of other large companies vowing to be more ecofriendly and removing plastic straws and plastic stirrers for drinks.

Starbucks, Marriott International, and Royal Caribbean have also recently made the choice to remove plastic straws. So have tourist destinations like Sea World, Busch Gardens, and Walt Disney World.

Seminole Tribe reaches card-slots compact agreement with State

April 20, 2018

A new gaming compact has been agreed upon between the State of Florida and the Seminole Tribe. Under the new compact the state will receive $300 million. The tribe will have exclusive rights to slot machines and table games.

A lawsuit had been ongoing over previous compact. The tribe sued the state over a breach of compact. Florida had allowed for other gaming venues that were not owned by the Seminole's to operate certain games. Last year the state submitted a counter lawsuit against the tribe. The new compact ends the litigation.

After the 2017 lawsuit, the tribe stopped playing the state the taxes that were agreed upon in the previous compact. Instead, the money was placed into an escrow account. Over time, the account grew to $120 million. That money will be paid out as part of the agreed upon $300 million to the state.

The $300 million payment will ensure that the tribe will have exclusive gaming rights. After May 2019, the payments will end. This will take place at the end of the legislative session.

Much of the money that is paid to the state from the gaming revenue funds environmental and education programs. Under the new gaming compact, payments from the tribe will go to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

The newly agreed upon gaming compact will be in effect until 2030.

Currently Seminole Hard Rock Casinos are investing over $2.4 billion into two locations. Those expansions are taking place in Hollywood and in Tampa. Construction jobs and permanent positions after the projects are complete will create thousands of jobs.

Voting will take place this November to determine if the state legislature or the residents of Florida should decide on the future of gaming expansion in the state.
