Casino-Resort Authorization Not In Cards For Florida This Year: Report

Massive commercial casino-resorts will not be authorized in and for Florida this year, according to a report from the Bradenton Herald. Lawmakers in the state reportedly have conceded that the proposal is off the table during this session.

The news isn’t too surprising, however.

Instead, lawmakers are looking to pass a bill that would phase out greyhound racing.

According to the report, “Florida is home to 13 of the last remaining 21 greyhound tracks in the nation. But as attendance has declined and people have spent less money betting on dogs, state law requires them to operate the same number of races they were running as nearly two decades ago.”

Casino firms, such as Las Vegas Sands and Resorts World Miami (owned by Genting), the latter of which is hoping to build a casino on property it owns in Miami, will surely continue the fight next year for the go-ahead to build. The lobbying has been pricey.

Commercial casino interests have been trying since the 1970s to get approval to build, but it hasn’t panned out. Disney is a powerful opponent to the casino-resorts.

According to Bloomberg, the state found that commercial casino resorts could generate $ 1.5 billion in spending annually in Florida. The state’s tourism industry is $ 71.8 billion.

Right now, Florida has tribal casinos (which are not considered commercial), a handful of them, in addition to 31 pari-mutuel facilities. The tribal casinos in the state have the forms of casino gambling you’d find in a Las Vegas casino, minus the craps and roulette.

MGM Could Start Maryland Casino This Month

MGM could break ground on its casino project in Maryland this month, Washington Business Journal reported on Monday. In December, the casino firm won approval to build a $ 925 million property at National Harbor in Prince George’s County.

“We are preparing to break ground as quickly as possible at National Harbor,” Lorenzo Creighton, MGM National Harbor president, told the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission on Thursday. “We are working closely with Prince George’s County officials to start as soon as possible. As soon as we have the proper permits and approvals, we won’t miss a day, because we are committed to beginning the flow of benefits as quickly as possible…Our team is prepared to move dirt in the next three weeks, before the end of April.”

There reportedly are still some zoning requirements to be sorted out.

The casino could open in July 2016, if things go as planned.

MGM National Harbor will have 3,600 slots and 140 table games, including a poker room.

In February, the firm selected an architectural firm to help with the project.

In addition to the Maryland project, MGM is vying for the right to build a casino in Massachusetts.

Recent laws in both states called for casino development.

Report: New York Web Poker Bill Not To Be Pushed This Year

An online poker bill was introduced into the New York legislature last week, but don’t expect it to pass this year. The bill’s sponsor reportedly said his intention is not to pursue it seriously in 2014.

According to the Associated Press, Sen. John Bonacic, chair of the Senate Committee on Racing, Wagering and Gaming, said: “I don’t intend to push this this year. But we need to start a discussion.” New York joins other states in the country with a wait-and-see approach.

New York will eventually be home to a handful of additional casinos, after voters last year approved a gambling expansion proposal passed by lawmakers.

The idea is to see how those perform first before trying online poker.

The authorization of online poker, under the current bill, calls for awarding 10 licenses. Each license would be good for a decade, costing $ 10 million apiece. Revenues would also be subjected to a 15-percent tax. Of course, those numbers will debated heavily.

Right now, Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware have legal and operational online gaming. California is still considered the favorite to legalize this year. However, it’s likely that no other state will end up authorizing forms of online gaming in 2014. Next year is a better bet.

The reason why California is the front-runner is because it has been looking at the issue for years and there is a very strong gambling business already existing in the state. With that said, the tribes are basically divided on organize such an industry.

PokerStars, the largest poker site in the world, wants in on California, but some tribes are trying to block such a move.
