Record Jackpots Paid by Seminole Hard Rock in Florida
It’s no secret that slots are almost every gambler’s preferred form of entertainment. If the results posted by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida are anything to go by, this is very true. The casino managed to post a record-breaking $1.2 billion in slot machine jackpots paid throughout 2021.
No Slow Down in the Amounts Won
Despite the lockdowns, health protocols, and a slight drop in consumer turnup, commercial casinos managed to maintain a robust pace over the last 12 months. A total of 420,000 jackpots were paid out to winners in the year 2021, or almost a jackpot each minute on the casino floor! The highest slot jackpot paid was $900,000, and the average one was worth $3,000.
The Seminole Hard Rock celebrated surpassing the $1 billion jackpots threshold as early as in November when a lucky gambler hit a $100,000 prize. The winner was congratulated by Miami Dolphins and NFL Hall of Famer Jason Taylor. To mark the occasion, the Seminole Hard Rock threw in $100,000 to the Jason Taylor Foundation.
It should be no surprise that the Seminole Hard Rock was able to pay out so much to so many people. The casino is packed with 3,000 slot machines, with all sorts of game genres available, from video poker to keno to electronic roulette, and naturally, slots. The casino even has a high limit slots room where the betting limits range from $0.10 to $1,000.
New and Existing Customers All Welcome
The Seminole Hard Rock has also focused on various marketing campaigns that are specifically designed to attract new customers, offering as much as $200 in free play for newly registered users to check out. The property has kept updating its initiatives to improve the paly of existing customers, too.
The Seminole also managed to launch sports betting in 2021, but the legality of the move was challenged and ultimately put on hold on December 4 with the ruling of the US Circuit Court of Appeals. Florida is still trying to figure out its laws on sports betting.
