#446 - How much is the Tampa permit worth?

Posted on June 27, 2012 at 10:28:29 AM by Tiger

If slots (coupled with a pari-mutuel permit) suddenly were allowed, this would fetch a bundle. In the meantime, it could be used to set up a jai-alai pari-mutuel operation with no strings attached. Presumably, poker could follow.

The current owner, Florida Gaming (FGMG), is obviously doing nothing with it now, but continues to hold it as a 'chip', perhaps for some ultimate deal.

So, what do you think it's worth?

(BTW, the permit is technically limited to Hillsborough County (essentially Tampa). That means that other Tampa Bay spots like Clearwater and St Pete wouldn't work, as they are in Pinellas County.)

There have been no replies.
