As Florida Legislation Moves Towards Allowing Bigger Casinos, Miami Stands to Gain a Lot

Florida is one of the states in the US that is more tolerant towards gambling.  Currently, the gambling industry in Florida is valued at around $2 billion dollars.  While voters in past years haven’t been too keep on the state being too welcoming to big casinos, a current poll shows that over 50% of South Florida voters would welcome big name casinos in Miami.

 

One of the reasons for the switch to a more tolerant and welcoming group of voters is that in recent years, Florida has been taking small steps towards increasing gambling.  Slot machines can now be found at horse/dog racing venues and online poker rooms are becoming ever popular all around the state.   It seems that as gambling increases, people are becoming more and more tolerant and they’re taking this new tolerance to the polls!

 

Miami seems to be the target for some big name casinos as brands including Wynn Resorts are looking to buy some serious beachfront property.  Big casinos means lots of jobs and lots more money being pumped into Florida’s economy.  It will be interesting to see what new laws follow these trends…
