South Florida Casinos Offer Las Vegas type Slot Machines

On October 6th, 2007, the gambling circuit in South Florida has taken some serious leaps since the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino started the improvement of the gaming scene with its impressive facility in 2004.

The Las Vegas style slots equipment were allowed in Broward County last November and transformed its dull pari-mutuel establishments. Just this summer, Florida law was modified to allow casinos to stay open for business eighteen hours a week, twenty-four a day hours during weekends, improved from sixteen hours everyday.

Casino facilities can also feature as many as 2,000 slot machines, improved from 1,500 machines. Poker rooms are now also permitted to feature bigger wagering limits and pari-mutuels will soon offer tournament jackpots like the Seminole casino's Bad Beat progressive jackpot.

The Maximum wagering limit for poker has been increased to $5 from $2 and casinos can now feature No Limit Texas Hold'em non-tournament games with a $100 buy-in cost cap.

Re-buys are permitted during tournaments. The idea of an even more expanded gaming has been proposed. The state voters in Miami-Dade County who have bypassed Las Vegas style slot machines at pari-mutuels back in 2005 will get another shot at the question in January 2005.

Casinos in Broward County already showed residents of Miami-Dade county on what should they expect. Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino and the Mardi-Gras Race Track and Gaming Center located in Hallandale Beach have also debut racinos, which is a combination of a racing track and gambling room.

These racinos also offer different casino games like poker and blackjack. The three casinos operated by the Seminole tribe in Broward are open for twenty four hours and has smoking rooms.

The slot machines offered by the casinos are categorized as Class II machines because they are like bingo machines. Players play against the casino. The bingo type slot machines are different from Las Vegas style slot machines. The odds may not be different from one another but the jackpot offered by type two machines are not as big as the Las Vegas style slot machines.
