Florida: Seminole Compact impasse lingers, gambling woes mount A.G. Gancarski, Florida Politics · December 13, 2019 at 6:40 am On Thursday, the House Gaming Control Subcommittee workshopped various gambling issues, including a discussion of the faltering Seminole Compact. Lou Trombetta, Director of the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering, addressed the accord with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, a central tenet of Florida gambling that has lapsed. “As of May last year, the tribe stopped paying … $25 million a month. The tribe has not paid since May of last year,” Trombetta said. Rep. Randy Fine questioned whether the tribe could offer Class III gaming — a federal designation that includes blackjack, slot machines and sports betting — without those compacts going both ways, and Trombetta said that, while not a legal scholar, he shares that read.
