Learn To Play On The House

Have you run out of beginner's luck at the casino? Those few fateful hours, sometimes days -- when it seems you can't do wrong despite not having a clue as to what you're doing -- are long gone. Well, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino wants to keep you around, and is offering free lessons Wednesday in Blackjack, Let it Ride, 3 Card Poker, Texas Hold'em and Pai Gow Poker. At the beginning of every hour, one of the aforementioned games will be taught outside Pit 1, the closest Table Games Pit to the South Garage. Schedules will be posted at the lessons table. Of course, you have to be at least 21. Nothing burns more than losing to a teenager with beginner's luck who's wielding his or her parents' money with reckless abandon.
