In a return to St. Johns County, bestbet plans to build a poker room and simulcast wagering facility near St. Augustine.
WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reported that St. Johns County issued a building permit July 15 for bestbet to construct a 40,673-square-foot facility at 800 Marketplace Drive in St. Johns County.
It is off Florida 207 and Interstate 95 near the former St. Augustine Flea Market.
