“To have one jackpot hit at these amounts is a reason to celebrate. To have three in less than a month is really something special.”– Steve Bonner, President of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa
Good Things Come In Threes
There’s a popular saying that ‘Good things come in threes,’ and we would have to agree. Why? Picture this: three winners…of three jackpots…and all three were Wide Area Progressive (WAP) jackpots.
Yes, THREE lucky guests claimed Wide Area Progressive (WAP) jackpots over the last four weeks, totaling more than $1.4 million.
The first WAP jackpot occurred on July 12 when a guest (with a $4.50 bet) hit for $516,519 on the Scientific Games Cash Spin Deluxe slot machine. Two weeks later, a second guest (with $0.80 bet) claimed a $242,443 WAP jackpot on an IGT Ghostbusters 4D slot machine, before a third guest (with a $4.50 bet) hit for a $706,320 WAP jackpot on August 4 – again on the Scientific Games Cash Spin Deluxe slot machine.
(WAP) what? (WAP) who?
We’ve been throwing around ‘Wide Area Progressive (WAP) jackpot’ like parsley on grilled chicken. But, what does this mean?
Well, it can be summed up to this: Hundreds of slot machines are linked between tribal casinos across the country, allowing the progressive jackpot on those machines to build to large sums of money.
We know what you’re thinking. You’re contemplating, “So these three jackpots could have been hit at any other tribal casino in the country, but not only one, but three WAP jackpots hit at Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa??? That’s crazy!” And, to that, we would say YES!
Major congratulations to our three lucky winners. Rock on!
