New Dominoes-Related Legislation in Florida

Posted April 2, 2006 @ 7:30 pm - Filed under: Dominoes News

The Florida legislature is considering legalizing domino games at state-licensed cardrooms. Currently only the game of poker is allowed in the cardrooms.

If enacted, Florida Statute 849.086, which authorizes the operation of cardrooms at licensed pari-mutuel facilities in the state, would be amended to also allow wagering on games of dominoes at licensed cardrooms in pari-mutuel facilities.

There are two pieces of legislation moving forward. House Bill 579, sponsored by State Representative Edward Bullard, and Senate Bill 1422, sponsored by State Senator Larcenia Bullard. is cited as a reference in a staff analysis of the house bill.
