The 250-room Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa, Fla., now offers 700 Las Vegas-style, Class III slot machines; a total of 1,600 machines will be available at the property by June. The Hard Rock has been allowed to add the slots as part of an agreement between Gov. Charlie Crist and the Seminole Tribe of Florida that grants exclusive Class III gaming rights to the tribe's seven hotel casinos in the state. The pact currently is under review by the Florida Supreme Court.
