HOLLYWOOD, FL - MAY 11:  A gambler prepares to put her money in a slot machine May 11, 2004 during the grand opening for the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. South Florida's Seminole Indian Tribe has opened the state's biggest casino complex. The hotel has 500 rooms, 4,000 video gaming machines, poker tables and several restaurants. The public area has large ballrooms and a six-acre pool site with a 180-foot water slide. The Seminoles have shown big profits in past years by selling tax-free cigarettes and operating bingo halls, but the Hard Rock is its biggest venture thus far.  (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
