Hard Rock has completed the US$700 million gambling expansion from Tampa, which is one of the two it has planned in the state of Florida.
US.- Hard Rock International has announced that it has completed its Tampa expansion. The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa received a US$700 million investment, which will be followed by another development in Florida at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Hollywood later this month.
The Tampa facility now features 1000 more slots and 41 table games throughout its new gambling floor. With those additions, the casino now has around 5000 slots, 179 tables and a state-of-the-art poker room with 46 tables. The new hotel tower has a high floor in which it features a private gaming parlor for VIP guests.
Jim Allen, Hard Rock International chairman and CEO of Seminole Gaming, said that the expansion will increase entertainment and dining options. It will also help them attract guests from all over the US and the world, he said. “Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa is already one of the largest and most profitable casinos in the US.”
