It is no surprise that one of South Florida’s main industries is service–and another being Casinos. Over the last twenty years, many different gambling regulations have been lifted, and tweaked, allowing our local Seminole tribes to offer full, Vegas-style electronic gaming, Poker (in it’s many forms), Blackjack, and many other games–at various locations throughout the state.
In South Florida, the Seminole tribes own more land than any other region in the state–allowing them more casino megaplexes for our twenty four-hour entertainment. Coconut Creek’s location is getting a much needed face-lift currently, inserting a new seven floor parking garage on the North West end of the casino, over 45,000 square feet of casino (an expansion to the original 40k sq ft), and new space for retail and restaurants.
The new renovations will leave the older, Coconut Creek Casino nearly as updated as the southern brother, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood–which boasts an expansive Hard Rock Hotel with two towers, a huge casino floor with separate, two floor poker rooms, and an enormous outdoor oasis featuring over twenty retailers, a dozen or so quality restaurants, and eight poppin’ night-life venues.
Both entertainment-driven casinos, as well as the few others in the area that aren’t as focused on night-life, offer first-time club members incentives to join and gamble, free meals, and stay opened around the clock. Parking is always free, the booze is always flowing, and in Coconut Creek, you’re always sure to have a good time either dancing the night away indoors at Nectar Lounge, or hanging out with good friends under their outdoor tiki-bar. I’m surely excited to see the end of the new renovations in December 2011, and the new night-life venues that will be premiering.
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is located just east of State Road 7 (U.S. 441) and north of Sample Road at 5550 NW 40th Street.
