South Florida is home to a number of land-based and sea-based casinos, offering everything from slot machines to blackjack, poker, and other table games.
Take a look at some of my favorite casinos in South Florida!
There are two types of casinos in Miami and its surrounding areas: pari-mutuel casinos and Indian casinos.
In early 2005 voters in Broward County (home county of Fort Lauderdale) passed a referendum to allow slot machines at four pari-mutuel facilities.
In January 2008 voters in Miami-Dade County also passed a referendum permitting slot machines at three pari-mutuel facilities.
Another pari-mutuel casino was added later and there are now four Miami casinos and four Broward County casinos, all located at racetracks.
All four Miami casinos, as well as the four in Broward, only offer electronic gaming machines.
There are no table games at Miami casinos, except for poker.
However, electronic versions of table games are allowed.
Florida gaming regulations require a minimum payback of 85% on all gaming machines.
The payback percentages for slot machines at all casinos in Miami and Broward, are released as a matter of public record.
