  • Seminole gambling pact published in Federal Register, takes effect

    The agreement Gov. Charlie Crist signed with the Seminole Tribe that allows expanded gambling at seven Indian casinos around the state officially took effect during mid-January when the compact was published in the Federal Register.

    But that doesn’t mean gamblers can head straight over to the Hard Rock casinos in Hollywood and Tampa and the tribe’s other gambling halls and start playing Las Vegas style slots, blackjack and other card games.

    “The view at the tribe is more long term in getting it done and getting it done right,” said tribe spokesman Gary Bitner. “The tribe is obviously moving ahead and ordering equipment and hiring and training dealers, but it’s unlikely there will be any games operating within the next few months.”
