All US land-based casinos to close on Wednesday

But the situation with American casinos is not as simple as in other countries. The fact is that they have such a concept as a tribal gambling business, which does not obey the government and operates according to its own laws. At the moment, 97% of the 524 breeding gambling establishments are closed. And those that are open are only local shops in which slot machines are installed. But not all breeding business is small eatery.

The Seminole tribe in Florida, for example, owns six casinos, including Hard Rock International. And when Florida institutions were told to close, they continued to work, since the state did not order them. The governor of the state noted that they are independent and do not have to obey the orders of the state. Although in the end the establishments were closed.
