Is there a self-exclusion register in the state?

Yes, more details here: http://www.gamblinghelp.org/give_help/exclusion

Is sports betting regulated or unregulated? 

Unregulated

With the Seminole Tribe and Disney lobbying strongly against regulating any new gambling activities in the state, this position is unlikely to change in the near term.

 

Regulator details

Florida gaming is governed by statutes rather than a regulator, with oversight from the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Florida Lottery.

 

Is sports betting permitted online?

Sports betting is not permitted online, although on-track wagering on horse racing is legalized

 

Is there any specific legislation for daily fantasy sports?

No. Florida has tried and failed several times to regulate DFS. Efforts to do so are now closely tied to a renewed gaming deal with the state’s tribes

 

What legislation, if any, is currently pending?

A number of DFS bills are still live, but progress is slow
