Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa is the first casino in the country to offer Everi Holdings Inc. newly licensed Discovery Shark Week™ theme on Everi’s Empire Arena™. The six-pod arrangement of machines are located in the new casino expansion area next to L Bar and Rise Kitchen & Bakery.

Empire Arena is uniquely designed to fully immerse the player as if they are peering through a window into an undersea world filled with lively sharks and other sea life swimming around a brightly colored coral reef. Sea life transitions seamlessly across massive 55-inch top screens while players engage with three exciting base games through touch capable 27-inch LCD bottom screens, making it impossible to miss on the gaming floor.

“We’re excited to be the first casino in the country to offer Everi’s newly licensed Discovery Shark Week™ game theme on its Empire Arena platform,” said Dan Ingster, Vice President, Slot Operations, at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa. “Our goal is to deliver a premium gaming experience to our patrons and Discovery Shark Week™ enables us to do just that.”

Discovery Shark Week™ features three popular base video game themes that include Shark Week with Star Magic™, Shark Week with Jaws of Steel™, and Shark Week with Fire Phoenix Burst®. Break the Cage™, What did the Shark Eat™, Fish Grab™, and Shark Alert™ are thrilling bonus features. Actual footage from Discovery’s Shark Week™ plays at the end of each bonus and is scattered throughout all the themes.
