Republican lawmakers are open to an expansion of Class III gaming for the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

The tribe currently offers slot machines and blackjack at its casinos. Lawmakers say a new deal could authorize roulette and craps in exchange for a greater cut of revenues.

The compact expires in 2015. The tribe hasn't said it is interested in new games but the idea wasn't outright rejected by a spokesperson.

The tribe is sharing about $1 billion with the state under the current five-year compact.
