Seminole Casinos debuts Mega Bad Beat Jackpots December 1
Friday, November 20, 2009 at 7:33:58 PM
Seminole Casinos are sweetening the poker pot once again by offering poker players a chance to win Mega Bad Beat Jackpots accumulated from all six Seminole Poker Rooms in the State of Florida. The progressive style poker jackpots will debut at all Seminole Casinos including the Poker Room at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Tampa on December 1, 2009.
Previously Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Tampa had been offering Bad Beat Jackpots to players accrued from its own poker room. On July 13, 2007 a poker player at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood hit a bad beat jackpot of $382,471. The largest regular bad beat jackpot at a Seminole Casino was at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Tampa where a player on June 9, 2008 hit a Bad Beat Jackpot of $564,905. Now the new Mega Bad Beat Jackpots will offer players larger bad beat jackpots with more frequency.
"Based on our current weekly play, we estimate the Mega Bad Beat Jackpot will accrue at about $50,000 a week," said Peter Arsenis, director of poker operations for the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood. "Based on those estimates and the frequency of bad beat hands being dealt, our poker players could have a chance to win $250,000, $500,000, $750,000, $1 million or more Mega Bad Beat Jackpots. Obviously the more play we have in our poker rooms, the more those numbers will go up. That's something no other Non-Seminole casino poker rooms can offer."
The Mega Bad Beat Jackpot will be funded by a $1 contribution from each pot of $10 or greater, from each of the six Seminole Poker rooms in the State of Florida. This includes Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Tampa, Seminole Casino - Coconut Creek, Seminole Casino - Hollywood, Seminole Casino - Immokalee and Seminole Casino - Brighton. Jackpot amounts will be updated on a daily basis at a time designated by management and displayed at all Seminole Poker rooms.
