Super Jackpot $1 Million Bingo is Coming to a Seminole Casino Near You, December 13
Seminole Gaming Celebrates 30th Anniversary of Bingo at Seminole Casino – Hollywood with Multi-Property Bingo Event
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- When Seminole Casino, Hollywood (known as the Classic) opened its doors in 1979 as a bingo parlor, it pioneered the Native American gaming movement. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, on Sunday, Dec. 13 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. the Classic will host an unprecedented $1 million prize Seminole Satellite Bingo Game that will be simulcast at six Seminole casinos via intranet. The other participating casinos are: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood; Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Tampa; Seminole Casino Immokalee; Seminole Casino Coconut Creek; and Seminole Casino Brighton. Tickets go on-sale for the event on Friday, Nov. 20 at each casino.
"We've come a long way since the first Native American high stakes bingo hall opened 30 years ago right here on US 441,” said Jeffrey Hook, senior vice president of marketing for Seminole Gaming. “This will be a really fun way to celebrate with our many customers throughout the state both the success of the tribe and the many winners we continue to make."
The buy-in of more than 30 games will cost $95 for advance registration, $110 day of the game. Tickets can be purchased beginning Nov. 20 at each casino. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis based on available seating at each casino. Players will play at the location at which they’ve purchased their ticket only, and must be 18 or older to participate; identification will be required. No refunds will be given once a ticket is issued.
The Super Jackpot Million Dollar Bingo Game will consist of one “cover all” game. The first person to successfully cover all of the spaces on their card in 48 numbers or less will win the $1 million grand prize. If no participant fills their card in 48 numbers or less, a $50,000 prize will be awarded to the first participant to fill their card in 49 or more numbers. Prizes are subject to verification by the prize provider and will be paid once authenticity is verified. In the event of multiple winners, the prize will be divided among the number of winners and shared equally.
The $95 buy-in includes 30 games that will pay out $2,500 each, and one Super Jackpot for the million dollars. Additional jackpots will be available for purchase on the day of the game. There also will be two additional “specials” available for purchase for from $2 to $5 that will pay out from $2,000 to $10,000. In all, more than $160,000 will be paid out, guaranteed, for the day.

About Seminole Gaming
In addition to its two Seminole Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos in Tampa and Hollywood, Fla., the Seminole Tribe owns and operates five more Seminole-branded Florida casinos in Coconut Creek and Hollywood on the Southeast coast, in Immokalee near Naples, on the Brighton Reservation north of Lake Okeechobee and on the Big Cypress Reservation south of Lake Okeechobee. The Seminole Tribe has long been recognized for innovation in its gaming and other businesses. It opened the first high-stakes bingo hall and casino in the United States in 1979. That facility was the forerunner of the Indian Gaming movement throughout North America.
The Seminole Tribe of Florida acquired Hard Rock International, Inc. and other related entities from The Rank Group Plc in 2007 for approximately $965 million. The purchase is the first of a major international corporation by a Native American Indian Tribe and marks a milestone in the growing economic power and prominence of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and other Indian tribes in today’s business world.
