Miami, Florida travelers will be pleased to know that Miami-Dade County will not back down from their bid to install slot machines at the Miami International Airport. According to the Miami Herald, the matter is now heading to the courts. In December, Florida regulators turned down the county’s offer to secure a permit for quarter-horse pari-mutuel. This would have opened the door for the slot machines to be added to the Miami International Airport.

Miami International Airport was interested in adding the slot machines to soothe increased operational costs that are now at $600M annually. The costs continue to rise and slot machines were an option to assist in paying for the operational costs. Mimi-Dade County officials state that the slot machines could bring the Miami airport approximately $17M annually or more. The matter is now being heard by the courts.
