Seminole Tribe: Shut It Down
Casino gaming is closed around the state due to health concerns
The Seminole Tribe of Florida and Seminole Gaming has made the decision to temporarily close all Seminole and Hard Rock casinos throughout the state. As of 6 p.m. on Friday, slot machines and gaming in rooms across six Florida-based properties will shut down.
According to an official statement, the decision “was not taken lightly as Seminole Gaming employs nearly 14,000 … team members in the state. The goal has been to protect their livelihood without jeopardizing public safety. We have now reached a point where we do not feel comfortable taking that risk.”
The closings impact the following South Florida casinos:
• Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood
• Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
• Seminole Classic Casino (Hollywood)
Additional closings include: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee and Seminole Casino Brighton.
