Over the summer, the five year old gaming compact between the State of Florida and the Seminoles expired. Under the compact, blackjack was only allowed to be offered at the tribe's casinos. However with the 90 day grace period ending, the state is trying to force the tribe to stop the operation of the game.

After negotiations, a new compact still has not been agreed upon.

On Friday a federal lawsuit was filed by Florida against the tribe. The state believes that the Seminoles are in violation of the law.

The Seminoles have not agreed to any proposed compact because they believe in the new deals that the state is asking for too much money.

Under the previous compact the tribe paid the state over $1 billion.

At the end of the 90 extension for the compact, operations of banked card games at the Seminole casinos would be illegal. Florida is asking the court to order the tribe to stop.

The Seminoles intend to continue table game operations regardless.

The Las Vegas Sands Corp had been pushing to build a casino in South Florida that would cost over a billion dollars to complete. However the company has lost interest due to the ongoing efforts from the Seminoles to stop the project.
