Blackjack will continue to be offered at the Seminole Tribe of Florida's casinos.

The ruling was made on Wednesday. The tribe will be allowed to operate their blackjack tables for another 14 years.

Under the compact the tribe was given exclusive rights to banked card games. The compact expired July 31, 2015. Table games were allowed to continue being offered for 90 days after the expiration date. The tribe sued Florida believing that a new compact could not be agreed upon and the state was not trying to negotiate a new compact under good faith. The state then counter sued and asked the tribe to stop operating the table games at their casinos. The state then approved electronic versions of the table games to be operated at other gaming venues.

The judge sided with the tribe due to Florida regulators allowing for pari-mutuels to operate games that were similar what was offered at the tribe's casinos.

The Seminole Tribe of Florida owns seven casinos.

The pari-mutuel gaming venues have been asked to change the card games that are being operated.
