Sports betting is back in Florida.
The Seminole Tribe’s Hard Rock Sportsbook app has relaunched in the state of Florida, officially making sports betting available to Floridians.
The app is in an ‘Early Access’ stage where members of Hard Rock’s Unity program get priority to get access.
No further information regarding the early access stage has been made available from the tribe just yet after Tuesday’s surprise launch, but bettors can make deposits and look at odds.
It’s just that not all of them can place bets.
It is expected that the app will open with full functionality in the coming weeks.
