Thumbs up When are they putting casinos in Daytona Beach, FL?

I heard a rumor that Vegas style casinos were coming to Daytona Beach on beachside. Supposedly, all the major hotels on a1a/atlantic have completed major electric work to support this.

Are there any updates on this?

Gambling casinos are only on Indian land in the state. I don't believe it is allowed in the state otherwise. Even the gambling ships at some of our ports that made 4 hour cruises into the ocean have been outlawed, I believe. Either that or they made it difficult for the ships and they left. Used to be 2 companies here, but both are gone.

Well, being that the news took you 4 years too late -- you should have been right. But that was at the height of the Real Estate bubble in 2006 and the Seminole Indian ownership of Hard Rock Cafe Resorts (and death place for Anna Nicole Smith) and legal challenge that these resort franchise outlets met the definition (regardless of location) of being Tribal Land. Not to mention a deal with then Gov. Christ. Good Times!

Oh, but now the bubble has burst, the courts have ruled, Christ is no longer Gov. and most people can gamble almost anywhere within driving distance to them in the USA -- as to gambling (during this master plan for Daytona) of the good ole days of "destination gambling" like Vegas, Atlantic City or Bahamas.

But during this grand idea, Daytona Beach did relocate it's Dog Track and expanded it with gaming. So all is not lost! (or was it? )
