Florida Sports Betting – Seems Near But Still So Far
Sports betting is already legal in Florida. But, the problem is that wagering is not yet allowed. There is no casino within the state that proclaims a launching date about when they will take bets. Why is this so?
Reasons why Florida’s launching for Sports betting is not yet ready:
Actually, taking bets in Florida has been delayed and not yet even started because of lots of legal struggles that the gambling industry in the state is facing. These may hinder the launching of gambling up to the year 2022. Surprisingly, there are some blockades that would like to stop the launching of sports betting in Florida.
The lawsuit basically focuses on the mobile betting setting that may not comply to the federal law. In case the lawsuit will be dismissed, sports gambling will be launching within 60 days both in mobile and on land-based set-up. This lawsuit is one of the primary reasons why the launching of sports betting within the state does not have a particular date yet.
Most probably, expect the resolution of the issue just prior to the federal appeals court which can be expected on late 2022. But, that will doesn’t stop there! By then, the losing party will have to request for the involvement of the Supreme Court of the United States.
