District Judge Robert Hinkle ultimately ruled in favor of the Seminoles, thereby paving the way for the newly introduced bill. As the Sun Sentinel explains , the Seminoles had sued the state for allowing racetrack casinos to offer "designated player games" the tribe deemed to be too similar to blackjack "which the tribe was supposed to have the sole right to offer under a five-year agreement signed in The state countersued, stating the tribe had continued offering blackjack even after the five-year agreement had ended, but the tribe maintained it did so because the state had failed to uphold its end of the deal by allowing the games at the racetrack casinos.

Judge Hinkle's ruling means "the tribe can now offer blackjack through the year and the state can't expect any further payments from the tribe.

The bill approved by the Senate Regulated Industries Committee would provide "access to expanded gaming options" to the Seminoles, explains the Miami Herald.

According to the bill, the tribe would keep a monopoly on slot machines in Tampa but not elsewhere in the state, and "would also lose its exclusive right to offer blackjack in South Florida because the bill allows Miami-Dade and Broward slots casinos to also offer 25 blackjack tables.

It was last spring we reported here how the two tribes — as well as the state's lawmakers — were considering adding a third casino to go along with the Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun. We shared how legislation to conduct a study regarding the cost of revenue of a third casino had been voted down, a move considered a victory for the tribes and their desire to move ahead on the construction of a third casino. The two tribes had formed a company together called MMCT Venture , and had begun reviewing site proposals.

Following lengthy consideration, it was announced three weeks ago that the tribes had eliminated several possibilities and "narrowed the choices down to East Windsor and Windsor Locks," the Hartford Courant reports.

However on Tuesday a new, non-partisan coalition led by state Sen. Tony Hwang was introduced whose purpose will be to oppose an additional casino, the Easton Courier reports. The member group is appropriately called the Coalition Against Casino Expansion in Connecticut and includes representation from numerous churches and faith-based organizations.

At a news conference introducing the coalition, the group shared 12 specific arguments against casino expansion in the state covering both economic costs and what the coalition considers to be potential societal harms including enabling the spread of gambling addiction. The building of an additional casino would need approval from the state's legislature, with the momentum-slowing delay in selecting a possible location having lessened earlier enthusiasm from some regarding the expansion.

We haven't too many details to share other than that announcement, but it appears the room closing is a consequence of the upcoming rebranding that will see the Monte Carlo split into two hotels, the Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas.
