Disputed casino documents reveal Seminole tribe made $2.4B in 2015

The financial information, which the Seminole Tribe of Florida had futilely tried to block from getting into publication, revealed the tribe made $2.4 billion in 2015—majority of which came from the gambling business.

Last week, the tribe tried to get a federal judge to block a deposition made by Seminole Gaming CEO James Allen, but that bid became “moot” after Politico published the disclosure information, according to the Associated Press.

Politico came out with a story that quoted Allen saying that $2.2 billion of the Seminole’s $2.4 billion revenue last year came from the tribe’s gambling business, particularly its casinos in Tampa and Hollywood.

The state Department of Business and Professional Regulation turned over a copy of the deposition after the news site filed a public records request.
