Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa To Debut New Poker Room

Media Alert

WHAT:
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa will unveil its new state of the art poker room.

The 46-table, non-smoking poker room will feature Wi-Fi throughout and will have the sports fan in mind (the room will offer 40 TV’s, including six 75-inch TV’s and four 65-inch TV’s). Additionally, high-stakes players will be offered an unrivaled poker experience with the opening of a new high-limit lounge featuring two VIP tables

Amongst the other offerings will be a bar with seating to accommodate 15, as well as a “hidden gem” of a snack bar with seating for more than 20, and as an added convenience an outdoor covered area for smoking.

To celebrate the opening of the new poker room, comedian Brad Garrett, best known for having played the role of Robert Barone in the hit CBS series Everybody Loves Raymond, will be doing a ceremonial guitar smash before the new venue opens to the public. He will then play the first hand, which will include the presentation of a commemorative chip (limited to the first 800).

Following the ceremonies, Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will present to Garrett a $10,000 check for the charity of his choice, Maximum Hope Foundation, which offers urgent financial relief to families caring for a child with a life-limiting illness.
