Hollywood, Fla. - Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. is among the first casinos in the country to offer IGT’s Jurassic Park™ Trilogy Slots. The resort debuted the six new machines in the casino’s new gaming space in July.

Based on the iconic movie trilogy, the game offers a variety of ways to play and win. Players can play three unique action-packed base games that offer engaging wild features and a linked Multi-Level Progressive jackpot.

    Jurassic Park Video Slots features the Wild Stack Multiplier Feature that awards up to a 5X multiplier when a full wild stack lands on one or more reels.
    Jurassic Park The Lost World Video Slots features the Wild Stack Attack Feature that awards full wild stacks on up to all five reels when a full wild stack appears naturally on one or more reels.
    Jurassic Park III Video Slots features the Wild Stack Respin Feature that awards up to three respins when a full wild stack appears, locking the original and any subsequent wild stacks for each respin.
    All game titles feature a unique free games bonus theme that awards five initial spins when three scattered “free games” symbols appear.

My Affair With Mobster Meyer Lansky

“One day, the hotel chauffeur comes to me, all excited, carrying a newspaper, and says, ‘Look, there’s a gangster here in the hotel who has $300 million. He burns down discotheques of anyone who doesn’t pay protection money.’ There was an American guy named Dan staying at the hotel, and I went over to him: ‘Hello, darling, you know what? There’s a gangster in the hotel.’” She didn’t know that the affable American was a close friend of Meyer Lansky, the Jewish American mobster known for the gambling operations he controlled. He introduced Lansky, 66 at the time, to De Toledo, who was 26 – and she became the secret lover of the feared mafioso.

Feared? De Toledo bursts into laughter when I remind her that a whole country trembled at the mention of Lansky’s name and that the press dubbed him a “dangerous criminal.”

“Meyer told me that the first time we met he gave me his loveliest smile, so I wouldn’t be scared,” she says. “He was 1.50 meters [around 5 feet] tall, wore a bow tie and smiled at me with mischievous eyes. Not a funny person, but someone who makes you happy. I fell in love with him at that moment.”
