Thread: What Local Casinos are already open near you? :)

  1. #1
    Miccousoukee Casino opened near me sometime in May, I believe.

    Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood opened up today Odd as according to Google they were accepting Hotel Reservations on like June 7/8. WTF? :/

    So, what Local Casinos near you are open?

    Do you like playing at Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Tasha?

    I have only been to the one in Tampa a few times. I love how many machines they have!

    I went to Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood once and was put off by all the smoke in that Casino. Besides ot was a bit too far for me by bus. And I wasn't fond of their New Member Promotion. Lose $10, get a $10 voucher MAILED to you. Why not just give $10 for free at the Player's Club right away like many Casinos do? But they are one of only TWO Casinos open near me. Miccousoukee Casino cost me $160 in Taxi ride and I was turned away at the entrance after they scanned my body temperature and said it was over 100 degrees(I felt fine and my skin didn't feel like it was burning up either). $160 in travel and I didn't even get to play. What a huge waste! I tried LYFT, but LYFT said there was a problem with my credit card. Had the credit card went through, I would have only paid $80 in travel, half of the Taxi ride. LYFT takes prepaid cards,so if I go to Seminole Hard Rock Casino from where I live, I would pay about $50 in LYFT, $110 cheaper than a Taxi to Miccousoukee. My other closer local Casinos still don't know when they will open. Part of me says to just wait until my closer Local Casinos open and go for free, but I seriously have no idea when my Local Casinos will open up. They have already been closed for almost three months and it could be July before they open up again. My closer Casinos are NOT Indian Tribes(Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood and Miccousoukee Casino are Indian based)so they are more subject to being closed longer.

    All except Diamond Jacks (shut down) in Shreveport/Bossier. FWIW, when they took my temperature at Margarittaville, it was 100 because I had been outside in sun for awhile. They were savvy enough to have me stand at a side holding area where it went to 98.3.

    Pretty much all of them, I think.

    What a waste! It is too bad they didn't have a place for you to cool off, like slingshot mentioned. I've read some of the casinos in Vegas are doing this. Of course, you could end up in the cool off area with a person who is actually fevered (and not just hot), and that wouldn't be good either. It is probably worth waiting for the closer ones to open, IMO, because all the taxi and Lyft fare could be used for gambling instead.

    It was horrible to see some of the careless ones. A young couple sat at a machine near me (we were spaced every other machine). She sat while he stood. She was at least 8 months pregnant and neither had a mask.

    What you said about the Sun making your body temperature read over 100 degrees, it makes sense. I forgot to mention that the Taxi I was in didn't have air conditioning and it was 87 degrees that day which could have given me a false reading of over 100 degrees. I should have just bought a prepaid gift card and taken LYFT with it since all of the LYFT rides I have taken have been air conditioned and it would have been half the Taxi fare.

    I knew it. Hialeah Park Casino opened up yesterday. I went there today to pick up free play... They checked my temperature...And my Temperature is actually about 98 degrees. I would like that $160 Taxi Fare back I wasted for Miccousoukee Casino only to be turned away at the entrance without even getting to play.
