The Seminole Tribe of Florida: The Seminoles argue against destination casinos, saying that because tribe members receive gambling revenues, more money actually stays in Florida if the tribe is the state's leading source for gamblers.

The tribe also is in the final year of a $1 billion, five-year portion of their compact with the state that gives them exclusive rights to offer blackjack, (shown here at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood) and other table games. The Miccosukee Tribe, which has a large casino in west Miami-Dade doesn't offer blackjack or table games, and has no agreement with the state.
