Eight hundred Las Vegas style slot machines are now spinning at the Hardrock Casino in Hollywood, FL.
Thirty years after the Seminole Tribe first opened a casino in South Florida, class three gaming style slots are here!
Travel leaders were the first to play the Vegas style One Armed Bandits at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. Now, more than one month after the tribe signed an agreement with Governor Charlie Christ, players can let it ride. "It's like the end of a long journey, we're reaching the end of the rainbow because we've been trying to achieve this since 1990," describes Max Osceola, Seminole Tribe Council Member.
Jim Allen, CEO of Seminole Gaming, says, "What really helps us and helps the state of Florida is that it gives us the ability to market on a national and international basis."
The casino was even able to get the slots in house much earlier than expected.
There are currently about 800 slots available at the Hollywood site, but the tribe plans to install more and are also getting several news games added to them.
