Florida Regulators Discuss Online Gambling Legalization

24 October 2013

Florida politician Jim Walden has spoken earlier this week at the World Regulatory Briefing in Philadelphia about an attempt that will see the creation of a new regulatory framework which will allow online lotteries in the American state. Walden said he is aware of the fact that the large population of Florida will be able to sustain a lucrative internet gaming and betting market, but that he is concerned about the Seminole tribe which might act against this proposal.

The Seminole tribe is currently in the possession of a gaming compact which allows its members to run gambling operations until 2015, when the contract will be renegotiated. Until then, the tribe will have priority over other gambling companies in the state. Furthermore, Massachusetts representative James McHugh explained during the conference that in the near future, intrastate internet gaming and betting in the US will be inevitable, but no one managed to pass a bill that will see the creation of a federal law until now. No matter what the outcome of these attempts will be, it is known that online gambling in all the American states will be legalized even sooner than some might expect, especially since Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware have already taken the necessary steps to start their online casino websites.
