Florida Woman Hits a Second $1 Million Jackpot at Tampa Casino – Odds-Defying Win Stuns the Industry

  • Clearwater woman identified as “Gloria” scoops second $1 million fortune in three weeks.
  • Gloria won both top prizes while playing the Dragon Link at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Tampa.
  • The Dragon Link is a progressive jackpot game with a prize that climbs in size until it pays out.

To win a one-million-dollar jackpot on a slot machine is the stuff of dreams. To win two is nothing less than outrageously good fortune. 

For one lucky punter betting in Florida, that’s exactly what happened when she scooped her second jackpot of over $1 million at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa on January 9.

If at First You do Succeed, Why Not Try Again?

Most who know how slot machines work understand that a lot of success to be had playing them comes down to luck.

While there is some element of skill involved, depending on the slot, good fortune is almost entirely responsible for major wins. For Gloria, her intrepid attempts at scoring another win were rewarded emphatically with two jackpot wins in just three weeks.

The first of her two monumental wins came on December 22, when she scooped over $1.2 million on the Dragon Links machine from a $50 bet.

“All I wanted for Christmas was to hit that progressive jackpot. I still can’t believe my holiday wish came true.”

Gloria’s win is the third $1 million jackpot paid out on the game in less than two months. The title is offered at the Seminole Hard Rock casino franchises in Coconut Creek and Hollywood.

What Are the Odds of Winning Two Jackpots in 18 Days?

Given the odds of winning one jackpot are 60 million to one, winning it twice in less than three weeks works out at a mind-boggling 3.6 quadrillion to one.

Her second jackpot scoop is, by anyone’s estimation, an utterly ridiculous stroke of luck. It’s certainly something that many in the gambling industry will have never seen before. 

Per Fox Business, the 642 slot players who had inserted their Seminole Wild Card into the machine within 15 minutes of the jackpot were each awarded a special $100 bonus to play on the game. The punters were not as lucky as Gloria. 

A second jackpot win in 18 days for the same player on the same game has naturally caught the attention of most. Some fans hoping to match her feats, whether at brick-and-mortar casinos or playing online casino jackpot games, will have their work cut out.
