Largest Jackpot in Seminole Gaming History
One lucky Fort Lauderdale resident is going into the weekend a big winner after a night at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood. The guest, who wanted her name withheld, hit a jackpot for $3,854,682 on the IGT Megabucks® slots game this morning shortly after midnight. The jackpot marks the highest payout in history for all six Seminole Gaming properties and the largest slot jackpot ever awarded in Florida on an IGT game.
The guest was playing the $1 machine and had wagered a $5 bet before the jackpot was won. She celebrated her 60th birthday last week and was staying the night at the iconic Guitar Hotel having dinner with friends at Council Oak Steaks & Seafood.
“I am in absolute shock,” she said. “You like to dream big but that’s really big. That’s not even in the ballpark of what you think you can win. That’s a lottery! It still feels like a dream.”
When asked about what she plans to do with her winnings, she said, “We’re talking about hurricane windows! We talked about resurfacing the pool or maybe getting a nicer condo after retirement.”
Since reopening on June 12, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood has awarded more than $74.8 million in jackpots, including 29 jackpots valued at $50,000 or above.
Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood reopened on June 12 under the company’s new and stringent “Safe + Sound” program guidelines which includes multiple initiatives designed to create a quality entertainment experience in an environment that help to keep guests and team members safe.
Guidelines includes required masks for guests and team members inside any facility except while in the pool, eating, drinking or smoking in designated areas. To maintain physical distancing, only registered hotel guests are permitted access to the pool. Chairs on the pool deck are spaced to encourage social distancing and guests who violate safety protocols may be asked to leave by management.
