According to Florida Law, Smartphones and Computers are now “Illegal Slot Machines”

According to the Miami Herald, a recent law passed in Florida to eliminate gambling at Internet cafes may have a broader reach than anticipated. The law states that any “system or network of devices” that can be used for games of chance is actually a slot machine.

The owner of an Internet cafe that was shut down as part of the ban hired a law firm to challenge the new law. They contend that this new law effectively defines any device capable of using the Internet as an illegal slot machine:

As you can see, any system or network of devices is a pretty broad definition which means it can be applied to “any number of devices”, according to Miami law firm Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen & Levine. Zapata is now suing the state in hopes that the court calls the Internet cafe ban unconstitutional.
