About Seminole Gaming
In addition to its two Seminole Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos in Hollywood and Tampa, the Seminole Tribe owns and operates five more non-Hard Rock Florida casinos in Coconut Creek and Hollywood on the Southeast coast, in Immokalee near Naples, on the Brighton Reservation north of Lake Okeechobee and on the Big Cypress Reservation south of Lake Okeechobee. The Seminole Tribe has long been recognized for innovation in its gaming and other businesses. It opened the first high-stakes bingo hall and casino in the United States in 1979. That facility was the forerunner of the Indian Gaming movement throughout North America.
Analysts believe the Seminole Tribe operates one of the most profitable gaming enterprises in the world. The Seminole Tribe of Florida acquired Hard Rock International, Inc. and other related entities from The Rank Group Plc in 2007 for approximately $965 million. The purchase is the first of a major international corporation by a Native American Indian Tribe and marks a milestone in the growing economic power and prominence of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and other Indian tribes in today's business world. Star Trek™ Machines are Exclusive to Seminole Casinos and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casinos.
