I didn't see nmse outside the hl room. Maybe they reserve those signs for really busy nights. Funny thing is when they got table games the pit bragged about how they weren't afraid of counters with their 8d games. Well I've seen several ap's and non-ap's get backed off.

The good news is that with nmse they are only hurting themselves. Paranoia is rampant there.

They got hit with a counterfeit $20 bill scam about a year ago and got taken for $50k. I've seen several guys drop $50k in less than 5 minutes. Karma?

NMS on the main floor is correct, at least at non-peak times. I don't recall if it was for all tables or just a few, but I noticed NMS on some $25 tables in the first half of a Friday day shift. It could have been an anomaly—I'm not sure, as I don't actually play at that particular casino!

It amuses me that you can go next door to Seminole Hollywood and play a $10 6D shoe game with MSE.

Sadly, while the Seminoles have deep pockets , just like those who wish to build casinos in Florida,
they have more Florida politicians in their pockets, the Governor included.

There are sound reasons for the Sunshine State's reputation as the nexus of crooked politicians.

Agreed. It is very difficult not to throw bricks at Gov. Scott's mansion when driving by it in Naples...

Maybe it is only on busy nights because the only no MSE I saw on the main floor on a weeknight was on the $100 min games.

Sadly, some civilians clearly will tolerate 6:5 BJ for a $5 min because those were the only crowded tables.

Have you guys been to this place on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday night? It's packed to the gills. It's hard to get a seat a $25 min game sometimes, and that's on a weeknight! Its as if blackjack is the new cocaine in south Florida and everyone wants a taste.

I think the Seminoles are smart. The $5 6:5 tables allow those low level gamblers who want to play but cant afford the high minimums a little sniff. The more experienced gamblers who will care aren't going to play in the $5 pit anyway.

To all of you who are predicting doom for the Seminoles from the 6:5 pit, you obviously haven't been to this place on a regular weeknight. The degens who frequent this establishment will not even notice or care.

Yes it's bad for all of us and it sucks, but the Seminoles really don't care what a bunch of AP's think. They've got a monopoly on live blackjack and they're gonna take full advantage of it before full blown gaming does come to FL and edges them out as the only game in town.
