A Miami resident hit the slot jackpot of a lifetime at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood on Wednesday, February 27, 2019. The Dancing Drums® $0.25 machine paid out $708,405.33 on a $22.00 bet after he spent about an hour at the casino.
The winner, who has been coming to the Hard Rock since it opened in 2004, enjoys playing at the casino about four times a week. He always plays the slots that have the highest jackpots and Dancing Drums® is one of his favorites.
“I woke up that morning and tended to a business matter, and had a feeling I would win if I went to the casino. After a short stop at Seminole Classic Casino to get a gift, I went over to Hard Rock and played for a little while on that machine, then switched to another one right next to it and went back to the first machine; and about three minutes later hit the jackpot,” said Antonio. “The best part when I won is that all the employees came over to congratulate me and were so happy that I hit the jackpot. The employees at Hard Rock are like family; Hard Rock takes care of their employees and I like that.”
When asked what he intends to do with the winnings, he stated he plans to put a down payment on a house for his son and daughter.
