Florida Sports Betting Goes Live
By Steve Carp
Quietly and without much fanfare, Florida joined the legal sports betting world Monday as the Seminole Tribe launched its mobile app and began accepting sports bets.
The Seminole Hard Rock is the only place where you can wager in the Sunshine State and you can only do it through a mobile device. There are no retail sportsbooks at any of the seven casinos operated by the tribe.
The state approved the deal back in April but it is currently being challenged in court.
The app launched Monday without so much as a press release. If you sign up, you receive a $100 risk-free bet. You do not have to sign-up in person and you can also bet off the reservation.
If you live in Florida and are reading this, you should consider signing up with Kenny White Sports to receive the best information in the industry, receive Kenny's Power ratings for all sports as well as selections from the KWS team of handicappers. Go to kennywhitesports.comand see what is being offered.
Florida became the 29th state plus Washington D.C. to have legalized sports betting and it is the largest state by population to have mobile betting. New York does not have mobile betting, only retail sportsbooks.
