Pari-Mutuel Wagering

The Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering is a program area of the Florida Gaming Control Commission within the Executive Branch of Florida’s government. The division is charged with the regulation of Florida’s pari-mutuel, cardroom, and slot gaming industries, as authorized by Chapter 550, 551, and 849, Florida Statutes, as well as collecting and safeguarding associated revenues due to the state. The division is also the State Compliance Agency (SCA) under the provisions of the Gaming Compact Between the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the State of Florida.

In Florida, pari-mutuel wagering is authorized for horse racing, harness horse racing, simulcast greyhound racing, jai alai games, and cardroom poker games. Additionally, slot machine gaming at pari-mutuel facilities is authorized in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties.

The Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering has no authority to regulate the lottery, bingo, or “cruises to nowhere.”
