BRIGHTON SEMINOLE RESERVATION, Fla. – The Seminole Tribe of Florida and Seminole Gaming have broken ground at the site of the future Seminole Casino Hotel Brighton.

The project is an entirely new casino, hotel, and entertainment complex to be built on the Brighton Seminole Reservation, located northwest of Lake Okeechobee. It is projected to open in late 2024, less than two years from the start of construction.

The Seminole Casino Hotel Brighton will replace the existing Seminole Brighton Casino, which first opened in 1980 and is located three miles north of the site of the future Seminole Casino Hotel Brighton. It is one of six casino complexes operated by Seminole Gaming for the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

The new Seminole Casino Hotel Brighton will include a casino with a total of nearly 38,000 square feet, including space for a total of 623 slot machines and 18 tables for blackjack, baccarat, and other house-banked card games. Included in the totals are a smoke-free gaming space with 101 slot machines and a high-limit gaming area with 42 slot machines and four table games.

Dining options will include a 24-hour restaurant with 124 seats, a steak house with 60 seats, and a fast-service and carry-out cafe offering a combination of items from a coffee bar and a pizza kitchen. An indoor event space with a snack bar can be configured to offer 400 seats for the banquet events or bingo games, or 900 seats set up as a performance hall.

The new casino complex will include the first hotel to be built on the Brighton Seminole Reservation. It will feature 100 guest rooms on four stories, totaling 72,000 square feet. Guestrooms will include a mix of rooms with one king bed and two queen beds, plus three suites and a fitness center.

A pool and amenity deck adjacent to the hotel will offer a 1,500-square-foot pool with a built-in sun shelf, plus a 12,500-square-foot pool deck with space for 76 chaise lounges, 40 chairs, and two cabanas.

An outdoor stage will provide a second entertainment venue at the complex that will accommodate as many as 3,000 guests for concerts, comedy shows, or other performances.

In a first for any Seminole Casino, the new Seminole Casino Hotel Brighton will include an eight-lane bowling alley of 8,400 square feet, with 32 seats for dining or events.

“Breaking ground for the new Seminole Casino Hotel Brighton represents a major economic step forward for the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the entire Lake Okeechobee region,” says

Marcellus Osceola Jr., chairman of the Seminole Tribe. “We’re excited to bring a new level of gaming, dining, and entertainment to the area, and we look forward to welcoming our current and future guests.”
