A new draft proposal for Florida's Governor Crist would allow the Indian Seminole Tribe of Florida that operates Casinos in South Florida to bring new games in town. New casinos will be able to offer Floridian customers table games similar to those offered in Las Vegas starting with the baccarat and the blackjack and slot machines. Roulette and craps are currently excluded. In exchange it is expected that the South Florida casino operator will give the state approximately $ 200 millions a year. This stream of new revenues will compensate partly for budget costs that the state will need to implement this year. This new proposal will face some local opposition from businesses known as Parimutuels. However negotiations between The Seminole tribe and the state of Florida are expected to reach a positive agreement in the coming 2 weeks. Slots machines are already present in the Seminoles Casinos in Broward County.
It is a definite positive development in South Florida tourism.
