Video Lottery Bill Passed By State Senate
March 13, 2008
TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida senate voted 27-11 to approve a video
lottery bill to allow video lottery terminals in all pari-mutuels. The video
terminals are not Las Vegas-style slot machines like those currently operated in
three Broward pari-mutuels and seven Indian casinos. These are a type of slot
with players competing against each other.
The bill is expected to raise up to $500 million a year for public schools,
but it faces likely defeat in the House where Speaker Marco Rubio adamantly
opposes any gambling expansion in Florida.
