NAPLES, FL – The Seminole added blackjack to their Immokalee casino last week.
There are now two rows of six blackjack tables placed between the poker room and
the slots area. The 12 tables accommodate seven players each and have minimum
bets of $10.
"It's another step up for the Seminole casino and it will attract a player who
is particularly interested in blackjack and there are lots of those because it's
one of the most popular casino games," said Seminole Tribe spokesman Gary Bitner.
Blackjack will help the Immokalee casino expand with more games, jobs and a Hard
Rock casino hotel within five years according to Seminole officials. A new
35,000-square-foot building will be erected on part of the parking lot to add
more space for slot machines and players. The cost will be $12 million and
construction will be completed in the first half of 2009.
Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum is trying to stop table games at the
Seminole casinos after the Florida Supreme Court ruled last July that the gaming
compact between Gov. Crist and the tribe was invalid.
