01/08/2012 : INTERNET CAFE ‘SWEEPSTAKES' GAMBLING MAY BE REGULATED
 
Proposed changes to Florida gambling bill include a fresh look at a wide internet gambling practice
 
The widespread use of Internet cafe ‘sweepstake' online gambling could come under review for possible intrastate regulation if new provisions to a Florida land gambling bill come to fruition.
 
State Senator Ellyn Bogdanoff's reworked bill filed Friday includes a call for regulating the practice, along with the approval of mega land casinos in the state if a referendum is positive on the idea; and giving residents a say on land casinos and slots at dog tracks, reports the Associated Press news agency.
 
The bill will be considered by a Senate panel on Monday.
