Florida is not expected to legalize sportsbooks to operate within its borders in the next decade.  Draftkings will not operate in any state that does not offer licensing.

Offshore sportsbooks have been accepting customers from Florida for better than two decades now.  None of these companies intend to seek a state license as they already have one from the country in which they operate.

Florida has a handful of casinos, all of which are run by the Tribes. The Seminoles are the most dominant of the casino operators.  They teamed up with Disney to ensure a voter referendum would dictate any gambling expansion in the Sunshine State.  This all but ensures the Seminoles maintain their near monopoly while Disney is betting on residents to vote against any future casino development.  Sports betting will likely be a casualty as a result.
