Crist announces latest gaming pact with Seminoles

Tallahassee, Florida (AP) April 2010

Gov. Charlie Crist and Seminole Tribe leaders say they’ve just about completed a 20-year gambling deal that could pay Florida up to $1.3 billion in the next five years.

Crist said during early April the agreement must still be approved by the Florida House and Senate. Leaders from both chambers joined him at a news conference to assure they had enough votes to pass the controversial measure that some see as the state endorsing more gambling within its borders.

The plan would give the tribe exclusive operation of blackjack at three casinos in Broward County and casinos in Immokalee and Tampa. All seven tribe casinos in Florida would continue to operate Las Vegas-style slot machines.
