10/17/08 - Tampa's Seminole Hard Rock Casino postpones addition of blackjack


Gamblers at Tampa's Seminole Hard Rock Casino won't double down any time soon. Seminole Tribe of Florida gaming officials targeted the Tampa casino this summer as its second location for blackjack and other new card games by year's end, with as many as 1,000 additional jobs. But plans now are on hold for expanding games beyond the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, which in June began dealing Florida's only legal "banked" card games in which gamblers play against the house.
