Campaign to expand sports betting in Florida forecasts major economic impact, increased state revenue

Nov 28, 2021

If a sports betting group gets its initiative on the 2022 ballot and voters approve broad sports gambling, the new industry could bring 20,000 direct jobs, $1.1 billion in direct added domestic product and $264 million in potential tax revenue to Florida.

Those are the findings of an economic impact study released Wednesday by Florida Education Champions, the group trying to get a constitutional amendment on the 2022 state ballot asking voters to approve broad sports gambling in Florida.
