Since the Seminole Indian tribe and the state legislature agreed to a compact between the two, the city of Coconut Creek are looking to add the game of blackjack. The compact must still be approved by the Bureau of Indian Affairs but once it is approved the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is hoping to earn the extra revenue that blackjack would provide.
Just a few days ago Governor Charlie Crist approved the law that would approve the new compact, which allows expanded card games at the Seminole casinos. Coconut Creek is one of these casinos and they are expecting to add games within the next few weeks.
David Rivera the Coconut Creek City Manager played a major role in pushing for funds that will go to the cities where the casinos are located. The idea that Rivera pushed was that the money could be used to make up for the impact that the cities would experience from the casinos such as traffic and people. The casinos owned by the Seminoles are looking forward to adding blackjack, and patrons are excited as well to be able to play the game.
