The event, held to usher in a “new era” in sports betting, also featured appearances by Mike Tyson, Ja Rule, Sarah Hyland and Heather Graham, as well as a performance by 15-time Grammy Award-winning artist Bruno Mars.

Thursday’s festivities included casino events, followed by a red carpet and invite-only pool party. With the introduction of the “new era” of sports betting in Florida, including craps and roulette, Hard Rock Bet offers the only legal sports betting option online in the state.

”The entertainment, travel and tourism industries, and many more, will see positive economic impact caused by the new casino games,” Seminole Gaming CEO Jim Allen said. “They will increase tourism to Florida and boost employment not only at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, but also at businesses in the areas surrounding this casino complex and others operated by Seminole Gaming throughout Florida.”
