However, the contract has yet to be approved by the federal government, and mobile betting is not guaranteed to pass the pattern. Even if this is the case, nearly everyone involved in the compact process expects a legal challenge for the mobile betting portion.
When mobile betting gets federal approval and quickly fends off legal battles, it can be started from October 15th. There might be more brands ready than both to hit the market DraftKings Sports Betting and FanDuel Sports Betting are reportedly ready to do business with the Seminole.
