The Fourth of July weekend proved to be very lucky at Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa as not one, but two Mega Bad Beat Jackpots were hit totaling more than $300,000 in payouts.
The twin holiday weekend jackpots were the casino’s six and seventh, putting the total for Tampa Megas at more than $1.5 million, giving it the distinction of the most hits as well as most money paid out to date of all the Seminole casinos.
The first of $190,790 hit early July 3 as Terri B. won $95,393 when her four jacks lost to the four kings of James C., who took home $57,237. The eight remaining players at the table each won $4,770.
On July 5 another one hit, this time for $110,664. Joseph DiSalvo Jr. of Tampa won $55,330 with the improbable losing hand of a four 10s. Michelle Murray, also of Tampa, beat that with a straight flush to the King of Clubs for $33,198. The eight remaining players at the table each won $2,767.
The exclusive six-casino approach to larger, more frequent bad beat jackpots has paid players more than $3.1 million so far.
