Allen also noted that the company is paying close attention to how other casinos are opening across the country. Deadwood opened the casino to the public last week and experienced a huge turnout on its first full weekend in business.
“We were expecting a very large crowd,” said Allen. “We saw some openings last week in other parts of the United States and frankly, the volume was incredible. We’ll be ready for that. The maximum capacity we will allow is around 50 percent as we navigate through safety for our guests and employees. “
A 50 percent reduction will likely be applied to temporarily visit KaptenCasino. In a CNBC interview last month, Allen said that it would be “at least a year” before the casino was operating at full capacity.
Allen said that table games would run at reduced capacity, with only four players per blackjack table, and that the table would have a divider between the player and the dealer. All employees will wear gloves and face shields when they work.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced earlier this week that professional sports are welcome to train and play in the State of Sunshine. Based on comments made by the CEOs of his country’s largest gambling operator, the reopening of casinos may not be far behind.
In an interview with Fox Business, Hard Rock International chairman Jim Allen said that he hopes to reopen the Florida-branded Hard Rock casino in early May.
“We’re thinking of opening in Florida in late May or early June,” Allen said. “But globally, quite frankly, it is one country at a time.”
Hard Rock International was purchased by the Seminole Tribe in 2007. The tribe has exclusive rights in Sunshine State for most non-poker related gambling and has several locations throughout the state.
The restrictions that Allen listed sound very similar to those proposed by the Nevada regulators in early May, which allowed only four players at the poker table, four at the roulette table, six at the craps table and three at the blackjack table.
In late April, a video surfaced on Twitter showing some of these dividers in action at the game table, but in Florida, it looks like they could be used at the poker table too.
Miami’s local sports radio broadcaster Andy Slater tweeted yesterday’s photo of the Hialeah Park casino testing the dividers to use for his poker tables.
