The Seminole Tribe of Florida just launched craps, roulette, and sports betting in their facilities in the state. The leaders of the tribe and many celebrities were there to launch a “New Era” in Florida Gaming.
Celebration of the new era:
Games and sports betting are now available at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel Casino Hollywood, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, and Seminole Classic Casino in Hollywood.
The opening night was held at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, where were seen the tribe leaders, as well as celebrities such as Jon Bon Jovi, Bruno Mars, Tiësto, Heather Graham, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Diplo, Cedric Gervais, Mike Tyson, Dwyane Wade, Fat Joe, Rick Ross, Sarah Hyland, Willy Chirino, Max Weinberg, Bobbi Althoff, and SI Swimsuit Cover Model Brooks Nader.
The celebrities got a chance to be among the first ones to place bets on their favorite games, spin the roulette, and roll the craps dice.
Various major events will be held in the Hollywood casino in order to celebrate the new games, including the long-expected one-time pop-up dining experience, which the visitors will be able to enjoy in the popular Carbone restaurant, created by the legendary chef Mario Carbone. The restaurant became famous for its great mix of Italian and American culture, often found in New York.
Marcellus Osceola Jr., a Chairman of the tribe, as well as other members of the tribe council, Jim Allen, the CEO of Seminole Gaming and a Chairman of the Hard Rock International, were also present at the celebration.
However, the Hollywood casino wasn’t the only one to host a grand opening: similar events were held at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and Seminole Classic Casino in Hollywood.
Signing a Gaming Compact in 2021 was great news for both the Seminole Tribe and the state. Now, customers are able to try almost anything they want, including the offerings that already exist, such as blackjack, baccarat, and various card games. There are also modern slot machines to improve the experience even further.
As PR Newswire reports, Osceola commented on this: “The Seminole Tribe of Florida is proud to point to a new era in Florida gaming with the unveiling of our new casino games. With the addition of craps, roulette, and sports betting, we now offer a full complement of casino games, and we join the ranks of leading casinos around the world.”
Allen added: “The entertainment, travel, and tourism industries, and many more, will see the positive economic impact caused by the new casino games. They will increase tourism to Florida and boost employment not only at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood but also at businesses in the areas surrounding this casino complex and others operated by Seminole Gaming throughout Florida.”
