Florida has a few different forms of gambling that are regulated through the state or operated, via compact, by Indian tribes. Any form of gambling that is not specifically authorized by the state constitutes, “Unregulated Gambling,” and is a Class II Misdemeanor. As a practical matter, we are not aware of any player ever being prosecuted in the State of Florida under this code.
Florida is one state specifying...
...unlawful gambling is punishable for the player as well as it is for the operator. As one would expect, operating an online casino out of the State of Florida that caters to residents in Florida is completely illegal. Online operators overseas who offer their services in Florida do so technically violating Florida law, but they are out of Florida’s reach.
From our restrictions page:
Whoever plays or engages in any game at cards, keno, roulette, faro or other game of chance, at any place, by any device whatever, for money or other thing of value, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
It is clear and unambiguous that this law refers to mere players and, ‘By any device whatsoever,’ would clearly include computers used for the purpose of online gambling.
In other words:
The computer would be being used as a gambling device, and would, therefore, fall under this law. The State of Florida was once known for having several, “Internet Cafes,” which were basically a front for computer gambling, but it is highly unlikely that law officials would take action (or even know) if you gambled out of your own home online.
Again, we have never heard of this happening in a single instance.
Even in the event of a raid on an illegal gambling establishment or illegal sports betting ring, as a practical matter, law enforcement has gone after the operators as opposed to mere players.
For this reason, the vast majority of online casinos that offer services in the United States at all offer them in Florida, and here are some below:
