So...after a lot of back-and-forth (I know we were discussing this earlier this year, but searched unsuccessfully for it), Florida Seminoles (the Hard Rock casinos here) and Governor Rick Scott have signed a new compact, allowing them to continue to offer table games. The new deal also allows them to deal craps and roulette for the first time! Florida Legislature approvals are needed before they start offering the games (I believe they've continued to deal PGP/BJ/etc while this was being negotiated, even though the compact had expired).

If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Interesting. I wonder what effect this is going to have on casinos in Mississippi and Louisiana as well as the craps boat industry. Is there a lot of business lost to other locations due to not offering Craps and Roulette?

That would be something!

I would say yes. They have 3 tubs, never seen less than 2 open. Tables moderately to fully crowded each cruise. At the same time, they have about 20 BJ tables. Never seen more than 6 with players except one Friday night they might have had 8 with one or more seats taken.
3-4-5x, $5 mins all tables. No Fire or ATS.

Big slot crowd, fair amount of VP.

No tiles. Min-bacc, UTH, 3CP, LIR, BJ, Roulette, Craps, Ecraps, Eroulette, VP, slots. Think that's all of them.

Why has it never been allowed? Same with california, just seems weird that they allow cardsand slots but no dice or balls.

In California, poker was considered a game of skill and therefore not "gambling". This was later expanded to "card" games (Blackjack, Baccarat, etc.) where the outcome of wagers is determined by cards and not balls, wheels, or dice. It is pretty crazy, especially since the Indian casinos were given permission to offer slot machines.
