They were recruited from the casino hotspots around America – Nevada, New Jersey, Mississippi and beyond - but the Hard Rock Casino dealers who will debut at 6 pm this Sunday at the gaming tables have been put through an intensive training course to ensure the Hard Rock image is maintained. Fun is the name of the game, and players must be kept interested and happy by dealers interacting with them as the card games are played.
Apart from pit managers and floor supervisors, there are 800 experienced dealers ready to commence at the Seminole Hard Rock’s 71 gaming tables: blackjack (55), baccarat (2), mini-baccarat (2), Pai Gow poker (3), Let it Ride (3) and three-card poker (6). As the other Seminole casinos in Florida also add table games dealers and staff numbers are expected to rise to 3,650. This is good news at a time when Florida is seeing more job losses than new hirings.
The addition of card games and Las Vegas style slot machines at the seven Seminole casinos in Florida are part of a deal agreed with Governor Charlie Crist last November. In return the Seminoles made an immediate payment of US$50 million, part of the US$100 million due to the State in the first year of the compact. The compact gives the tribe exclusive rights to table games in Florida. (E-06.20.08)
