Can I Play on the Chumba Casino From Florida?

The Chumba Casino is legal to play online from the state of Florida.


Chumba Casino is a leading social casino site. In addition to their Gold Coin games, they also use a unique sweepstakes model which allows the safe and secure redemption of Sweeps Coins for cash prizes to players in the US and Canada.

“We pride ourselves on adhering to the laws in the jurisdictions that we operate in. We engage with leading experts in those jurisdictions to ensure that we are fully compliant with all applicable laws.”

The parent company operates Global Poker.

Florida is full of casino gamblers thanks to the decent number of venues, including the chic Seminole Hard Rock Guitar Hotel in Hollywood near Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

And more recently, Florida began regulating online sports betting courtesy of a compact between the state and Seminole Tribe.  The Seminoles run a monopoly in the sports betting space.  That means no DraftKings and no FanDuel.

Despite the compact, the Seminoles and their Hard Rock platform are not permitted to offer internet gaming....yet.

In addition to social casinos like Chumba, numerous real money online casinos licensed in jurisdictions such as Curacao and Antigua as well as the Kahnawake region just outside Montreal, Quebec welcome customers from Florida.

The real money online casinos typically promote casino bonus codes with offers like "Get up to $10,000 in bonus money with our welcome package".  The bonus is claimed only after you play through a specified number of times.  These often come with reload bonuses.

The "free money" mystique is often lost with the social media online casinos.  For example, Chumba Casino promotes its "free sweeps coins", which comes across a little less sexy than, say, up to $10,000 free money.
