PokerStars forbids those from Florida from playing for real money on their website.  Alternatives include Americas Cardroom, available to play for real money in 47 US states and now offering $25 Million Guaranteed tournaments.

Florida Amendment 3, the Voter Approval of Casino Gambling Initiative, was on the ballot in Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment on November 6, 2018. It was approved and gives Florida voters the power to decide whether gambling will be expanded in the Sunshine State. 

In May 2021 state lawmakers did arrive at an agreement for a new compact that expands the Seminoles presence in Florida that includes sports betting at all of their casinos. Online poker was ultimately stripped from the measure.

Florida began offering Vegas-style poker games a few years ago at its casinos.

These games include:

    Mississippi Stud Poker
    Crazy 4 Poker
    Fortune Pai Gow
    One Card
    Three Card
    Ultimate Texas Hold'em!

Needless-to-say, there are many poker players living in Florida.  Their desire to play online is insatiable.

Americas Cardroom is one of the few sites that has long served the U.S. market and is currently offering a $7 million guaranteed online tournament with a $1 million first AND second place prize.  Americas Cardroom tends to rank as the 8th largest online poker site in the world.  It also offers a sportsbook and online casino.
