Bad-beat fireworks at Hard Rock Tampa



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.
