Freddy Howard got a happy ending in his battle with The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
HOLLYWOOD -- First, he won a big Seminole casino jackpot. Then Freddy Howard found out he hadn't won. Then came an outside investigation that proved Howard wasn't entitled to anything, the tribe's gaming gurus said.I'm happy for Mr. Howard and wish him well. Seminole is still a knucklehead however. This bit of stupidity even if resolved in the gambler's favor has to be a PR disaster for the casino. Michael Mayo at the Sun-Sentinel said so much over a week ago. Do gamblers or any customers want to take their business to an establishment that can't be trusted?
On Tuesday, they paid him anyway, giving Howard a check for $259,945.75, although nobody from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino would admit he deserved it. Executives said a computer glitch only made it appear Howard had won a jackpot Aug. 29.
This clusterfuck is going to cost Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino alot more than the $259.945.75 that they reluctantly antied up.
