The Seminole Tribe will be able to operate sports betting under an agreement with Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The House voted 97-17 on Wednesday to approve the gambling compact. The Senate approved it on Tuesday.

DeSantis and the tribe signed the agreement last month. In addition to sports betting, the tribe will be able to add roulette and craps to its seven casinos.

The state will receive at least $2.5 billion over the next five years and an estimated $20 billion over the course of the 30-year deal.
