Several of Florida's leading newspapers have joined Poker Alliance in opposing Amendment 3:

This is Why We are Urging You to VOTE NO on Amendment 3:

Amendment 3 is a Bad Beat for Poker Players

Amendment 3 is a BAD BEAT because it will virtually eliminate the expansion of live poker.

Amendment 3 is a BAD BEAT because it will be impossible to update current live poker rules and for casinos/cardrooms to add new games.

Amendment 3 is a BAD BEAT because it will be a huge longshot for Florida to ever legalize internet poker and sports betting.

It's Time to #FoldOn3

Florida’s poker community is strong and growing, however, this could change if Amendment 3 is approved on Election Day (November 6th). This problematic referendum will make it very difficult -- if not impossible -- to expand gaming opportunities in Florida.

Amendment 3 is a BAD BEAT because it means hundreds of millions in tax dollars to fund education in Florida will be lost.

"Amendment 3 purports to put citizens in charge of any expansion of gambling, but it’s mainly a sop to Disney, which opposes all casino gambling, and the Seminole Tribe, which doesn’t want any competition for its gambling operations."

Entitled “voter control of gambling,” this is an initiative bankrolled by Disney and the Seminole Tribe of Florida that would require any extension of casino gambling to be approved by voters statewide. This amendment would protect the Tribe’s near-monopoly on casino-type games in Florida. It would prevent South Florida racinos from consolidating licenses to create a destination casino, as proposed two years ago. It would prohibit slot machines in eight counties — Palm Beach, Lee, Brevard, Duval, Gadsden, Hamilton, St. Lucie and Washington — whose voters have approved local referendums to allow slots.

"On the surface, Amendment 3 empowers voters. But because the referendum would be statewide, voters in one part of the state would decide whether a gaming facility can open somewhere else. This would benefit larger companies that have the resources to gather hundreds of thousands signature needed for a referendum."

“[Amendment 3] is unfair. It would allow casino gambling in Florida only if voters — and only voters — proposed a constitutional amendment, which would then, of course, have to pass. That cuts out the other two means of placing amendments on the ballot, through the Legislature or the Constitution Revision Commission. On Amendment 3, the Tampa Bay Times recommends voting No.”

It is abundantly clear that Amendment 3 is a BAD BEAT for all Florida residents and it must be rejected.

Early voting has already started in Florida and Election Day is November 6th. So, whether you are mailing in your ballot early, or going to the polls on the 6th, the Poker Alliance urges you to:

VOTE NO on Amendment 3
