Seminole Tribe of Florida chairman Marcellus Osceola Jr and other members of the Seminole Tribal Council, along with Seminole Gaming CEO and Hard Rock International chairman Jim Allen, led a ceremony at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood to commemorate the initiation of the new games.
Embracing new gaming offerings across Florida
Similar ceremonies took place at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and Seminole Classic Casino.
The addition of craps, roulette, and sports betting was made possible by the Gaming Compact, a collaborative agreement signed and approved by the Seminole Tribe and the State of Florida in 2021.
These games now join blackjack, baccarat and other casino card games, along with thousands of slot machines, providing a comprehensive array of casino offerings at all six Seminole casinos in Florida.
