Baghdad's 'Godfather of Gambling' Taken Down

Iraqi officials have arrested a man they believe to have controlled all gambling in the city of Baghdad.


Last week, gun-toting members of Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces, or PMF), a coalition of Shia militia groups that reportedly operate with funding from Iran, swooped down on a number of Baghdad hotels in search of “mafias, roulette clubs, casinos, drug dealers and prostitution rings.”

Local media reported that the raids resulted in the arrest of Hamza al-Shammari, allegedly the godfather of Iraq’s largest criminal organization, along with around 25 of his minions. The PMF claimed al-Shammari “controlled all gambling, prostitution and drug trafficking sites” in the Baghdad area.

Seminole Hard Rock Pays Out Over $1.4 Million in Jackpots in 4 Weeks

(TAMPA, Fla. ) – Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa has had three lucky guests claim Wide Area Progressive (WAP) jackpots over the last four weeks, totaling more than $1.4 million.

The first WAP jackpot occurred on July 12 when a guest (with a $4.50 bet) hit for $516,519 on the Scientific Games Cash Spin Deluxe slot machine. Two weeks later, a second guest (with $0.80 bet) claimed a $242,443 WAP jackpot on an IGT Ghostbusters 4D slot machine, before a third guest (with a $4.50 bet) hit for a $706,320 WAP jackpot on August 4 – again on the Scientific Games Cash Spin Deluxe slot machine.

“To have one jackpot hit at these amounts is a reason to celebrate,” said Steve Bonner, President of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa. “To have three in less than a month is really something special.”

Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will formally debut its $700 million expansion on Thursday, October 3, which will include new gaming space. The completed 245,000-square-foot casino will feature nearly 5,000 slots, 179 tables and a state-of-the-art poker room with 46 poker tables.
