Florida to launch retail sports betting in December

Florida is poised to get back in the sports betting game.

The Seminole Tribe of Florida announced Wednesday that in-person sports betting will launch at three of its casinos in Hollywood and Coconut Creek on Dec. 7. Additional locations will begin offering sports betting Dec. 8 and Dec. 11.

The announcement comes one week after ruling from the United States Supreme Court, reaffirming the Seminole Compact with Florida that allows the tribe to offer sports betting. It was the latest decision on a lengthy legal battle between the Seminole Tribe and other gaming operators in Florida that began in 2021, after Gov. Ron DeSantis agreed to a new gaming compact. Hard Rock Casinos began accepting bets in November 2021, but abruptly halted business after legal challenges arose.
