PRESS RELEASE

HOLLYWOOD, fl - The Mega Bad Beat Jackpot that started accumulating on Dec.1 at all six Seminole poker rooms in Florida hit yesterday, Jan. 3, for $365,401 at the original Seminole Casino Hollywood. At 10:45 p.m. playing Texas Hold-Em, Fort Lauderdale residents Roderick Jones and Harvey Langer won $182, 705 and $109,622 respectively. The other seven players split the remaining $73,081, or $10,440 per person.

The cumulative Mega Bad Beat Jackpot was reset at $132,703 and is already growing. "Only the Seminole Casinos can offer the Mega Bad Beat Jackpot, so we're excited to announce this jackpot so soon after its debut. By combining the bad beat jackpots of six casinos, the life-changing winnings are greater for our patrons," said Jeffrey Hook, vice president of marketing for Seminole Gaming.

Previously, the Seminole casinos poker rooms had been offering Bad Beat Jackpots to players accrued only from each casino. The new Mega Bad Beat Jackpot offers players larger bad beat jackpots with more winning frequency.

The Mega Bad Beat Jackpot is funded by a $1 contribution from each pot of $10 or greater at each of the six Seminole poker rooms including: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Tampa, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, Seminole Casino Immokalee, Seminole Casino Brighton, and Seminole Casino Hollywood. Jackpot amounts are updated on a daily basis by management and displayed at all Seminole poker rooms.

To win the Mega Bad Beat Jackpot only the top two hands at the "showdown" are eligible and both hands must be the best possible combination of five cards. At least four players must be dealt in a qualifying table. Tables with less than four players will not have a jackpot drop. Multi-table tournaments are excluded from winning the Mega Bad Beat Jackpot. Single table tournaments are eligible until less than four players remain. Players must play their hands independently.*

In Sunday's game, Jones won the bad beat playing in seat two with a losing hand of 6,7,8,9, and 10 of Clubs. The winning hand of Harvey Langer in seat seven was a 9, 10, Jack, Queen, and King of Clubs. In Texas-Hold Em, the requirements are four 10's or better, beaten by a better hand; both players must use both hole cards; and two of the four of a kind must be hole cards.

Fifty percent of the Mega Bad Beat prize pool is awarded to the qualifying losing hand; 30 percent to the qualifying winning hand; and 20 percent divided among the remaining players

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood Director of Poker Operations Peter Arsenis estimated that the Jackpot accrues about $50,000 a week, offering customers the possibility of winning $250,000, $500,000, $750,000, $1 million or more in Mega Bad Beat JackpotS.
