Seminole Casinos to offer No-limit, High Stakes Poker 24/7

Jun 24, 2010

PRESS RELEASE

Seminole Casinos to Debut No-limit, High Stakes Poker 24 Hours, Seven Days a Week, 365 Days a Year

Starting July 1, a Seminole Casino near you will offer exclusive Las Vegas-style high stakes, no-limit, around-the-clock poker play thanks to the recent actions by the Florida Legislature and Seminole Tribal Council.

Hollywood, Fl (PRWEB) June 24, 2010 -- Starting July 1, a Seminole Casino near you will offer exclusive Las Vegas-style high stakes, no-limit, around-the-clock poker play thanks to the recent actions by the Florida Legislature and Seminole Tribal Council.

The new "all in, all the time" action, only at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casinos in Hollywood and Tampa, as well Seminole Casinos in Coconut Creek, Hollywood, Brighton and Immokalee, removes the $100 maximum buy-in for no-limit poker and eliminates the $5 maximum bet per round in limit games. Poker tournament buy-in limits will also be removed, as a $1,000 limit had previously been imposed.

Nowhere is the potential exposure for Florida poker bigger than in the tournament arena. With buy-in caps removed, Florida rooms can now court the World Poker Tour, the North American Poker Tour, perhaps even a World Series of Poker circuit event, all of which provide expansive television coverage that will show players around the world that real poker can now be played in Florida. Only the Seminole Tribe of Florida will offer high stakes, no-limit poker 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Seminole Casinos offer 1,360 poker seats at six casinos, far exceeding any other card rooms. The new legislation allows the other poker venues, at horse tracks, dog tracks, and jai alai frontons, to be open 18 hours, at most, during weekdays.
Additionally, since January of this year, Seminole Casinos distinguished themselves in the payout of nearly $2.5 million through their exclusive Mega Bad Beat Poker Jackpot program that guarantees a minimum of $100,000 each time someone hits. A bad beat occurs when an apparently unbeatable hand loses to a better hand. The Seminole Casinos Mega Bad Beat Poker Jackpot is funded by a $1 contribution from every poker pot of $10 or greater at each of the six Seminole poker rooms in Florida.

The Seminole Casino properties have a history of producing star-powered, celebrity poker events. With this new legislation, the potential certainly exists to attract larger, globally recognized poker tournaments.

Agrees Scott Long, publisher of Ante Up, a Florida magazine that covers poker in more than 12 southeastern states, "Nowhere is the potential exposure for Florida poker bigger than in the tournament arena. With buy-in caps removed, Florida rooms can now court the World Poker Tour, the North American Poker Tour, perhaps even a World Series of Poker circuit event, all of which provide expansive television coverage that will show players around the world that real poker can now be played in Florida."

Seminole Casinos also feature the Genesis Bravo electronic tracking system (Seminole Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos in Hollywood and Tampa and Seminole Casinos in Coconut Creek, Hollywood and Immokalee; Brighton is presently in process of installing as part of their expansion). This state-of-the-art system is used by many of the world's top gaming and entertainment destinations to more efficiently track pit management and tournaments and instantly update and reward players for their time. Benefits of the high-tech Genesis Bravo system include the registering and management of tournament play (including buy-in, re-buy and add-on tracking), dealer auditing, food and beverage selection and leader board tracking and display, remote monitoring and more. Players are also able to electronically place themselves on a popular game wait list and then be notified by text or email when their favorite game has opened.
