Seminole Hard Rock Dishes Out More Than $1.4 Million in Jackpots Over Four 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.
