No way to win
I'll cut to the chase. Hard rock Tampa does not pay out. You should only go if you are ok with losing money in exchange for some smoke filled cheap entertainment. I have been 4 times over last 6 months. The last 2 times, I played $6.50 slots. 4 of 5 bonus plays gave me $34 each. The last bonus was better at $250. But that took me thousands to get. So if you go, don't expect anything but to be poorer when you leave.
A few quick facts. This place manipulates their slots unlike any other seminole casino in Florida. Their inside motto is, "Bring them here then take their money before they leave", as said on live TV by a Tampa Hard Rock Casino advocate. They have a deal with trip advisor to not post any negative comments or reviews. I've tested it, and was also told by a silicon valley buddy of mine. All their 5 star reviews are by paid marketers or employees of the Tampa Hard Rock. Pretty sad. They don't use manufactures chips in their slots. I was told by "a few" people that their payout percentage is below 50%. See someone get a nice win? That wasn't luck. They have state of the art facial recognition software, and know exactly who is going to win something even when there are thousands of people playing. 99% of the slots on the slot floor will take everything you put into a machine, only paying back less than your bet amount.
Do not play slots here
I just finished reading all the reviews. I don't usually comment, but feel the need too. Slot payouts here are bad. I could use a few hundred other adjectives than bad, but will keep it clean. Wife and I went for about 10 years. Started 5 days a week, now we will both never set foot in here again. You won't win on the slots. They are that bad. We both walk in with anywhere from 500 to a grand each every trip, neither of us have left with money since 2008. 100 dollars will last you 5 minutes, a grand will last you 30. We now take trips elsewhere, and both of us have once again experienced what it's like to actually get a win. People talk about their payout percentages. For us, it has been about 1% honestly without exaggerating. I don't know what they use for payouts, but it isn't a manufacturers chip. If it is, the chip has to be below 50%. Last visit there, I rage quit leaving 30 bucks in the machine, and haven't been back since. No desire to go back there, because I already know what the outcome will be, which is doing the "walk of shame" (Leaving pissed and broke).
Alot of fun
I do not go to the casino to win money. I like playing the slots and consider it reasonable entertainment at most casinos. The Tampa Hard rock is a joke. It costs an average of 300-500 per hour to play an average of 2.00 a spin. They used to give special attention to Elite players. Now they are only concerned with x-card players. No freebies here.
Horrible casino and horrible people
Picked up my free t-shirt, on my way out stopped at "Walking Dead" machine, after 50 spins, I win bonus of 12 spins. I won 42 cents on 12 spins. Same Old Shit.
Been 7 times in the 6 months won 3 times lost 4 times 2 trips were over 10 hours of fun - you got to know when to stop playing or go to a smaller domination machine if your not hitting anything
Putting lipstick on a pig !!
Improvements can't hide the fact that anyone in Tampa that is local hates this shit box of a casino..
10 bucks to park
Pay for liquor no free drinks unless you are in the high limit rooms
ATM machines are a ripoff too
High rates to get cash
Slots are the tightest on the planet
You can't win here period !
I don't know how they manage to make even table games impossible to win !!! Why ??
CONTINIOUS SHUFFLERS PROGRAMMED TO RIP YOU OFF. DON'T PLAY A SINGLE ONE OF YOU WILL LOSE.
this is the shittiest casino I've ever been in ...
Before hard rock put their hands on this place it was fun ! Now don't go here. I've warned you
After hard rock spends all this money on renovations it will still be a turd of a casino.
Everyone on here is right, slots are tight as hell. When 200 bucks can't even last you more than 5 minutes on a machine, that's pretty bad. When 20 different machines do the same thing, that's worse. Over 4 days really sucks. Place sucks. Literally.
seminal hard rock casino tampa fl.
I have gambled there over 40 times and averaged about 350.00 per visit in losses. I only get 15 to 20 dollars in free play.
they charge 10 dollars to park. they are crooks and I won't be going there again would recommend finding a different casino.
Tribe must be smoking something
Greediest casino in the us. You have to be crazy to go there!
Very, very, tight machines
I spent a lot of time here the past year being new to Tampa. Payouts here suck. Literally. 90% of the slots are dead, meaning 0% payback. If you are lucky, you will get on a "hot slot" that will pay back, but take you to 0. I went in with a grand a few times and left 30 minutes later. The only thing you get out of Elite status is free parking. 15$ free play twice a month while losing thousands is just wrong. Stingy, stingy, stingy. Not one hand pay, never saw a hand pay here. Slots seemed to be programmed to not pay over a certain amount, so a jackpot here is equivalent to about 200$ after pumping a few hundred into a machine. Place is packed too. You would think while people are pumping millions into slots, they would pay a little back, but nope, never, ever.
gone way down hill
My sister lived in Tampa area over 30 years. She had been going there since it opened. Over the past five or six years, we have made it a sisters trip, four of us in all, sometimes all together or one, two or three of us. When the casino first opened, my sister said she won there all the time. Pretty good payouts. However, over the past few years, you cannot win. The payouts are few and far between and amount to nothing compared to what you've lost. Yes, I understand these are games of chance, but when you can truly see the change in times and amounts of payouts, they've changed the machines to not pay. We love to go, but know we are never going to win. We'd rather save up and go to Biloxi or Vegas. Even the casino boat pays more! The Gaming Commission should look into this. I know where the money is going, their pockets, and the fancy new parking that no one will use because so many people are tired of the meager to no winnings. Wise up, Hard Rock.
Same Old shit
Don't play slots here
Read all the other reviews and you all are 150% correct. Payouts at this place are atrocious. Hundreds of trips dropping a grand each time, and never won. Not once. Lost elite status not because I'm not there multiple times a week spending thousands on slots, but because not one machine will keep you playing at all. Wish all of Tampa would boycott this place. 100 bucks anywhere else, I could play for hours. 500 bucks here will get you about 20 minutes play time. Won't be returning here. Without elite I will have to pay 10 bucks to park. What a fucking joke. Times are hard these days, and people go support this place still. 2.2 billion profit last year. Wonder who is getting rich.
now since you are the only casino in the U.S.A that charges to park, I will no more be visiting your casino. I see you like to pray on the little people but you are making billions of dollars a year. It is called greed and that is what hard rock has become it is sad but we must take my business else wear. It was great knowing you hard rock peace .
You will not win
Just throwing my two cents in... This place sucks. The slots are so rigged against you, you will not win, ever, never, ever, ever... I say this with confidence since I had 100s of trips this year alone with my wife and lost over 30k. Neither of us have left with money, not once. It's insane. We take trips to South Florida once a month now and one of us always comes out ahead, like hand pay's, thousands ahead. There are no such things as "hot machines" at the Tampa Hard Rock. You pump hundreds, and in my case with a few machines thousands, and you will get no return. Maybe 1% and a 10 dollar win here and there. Bonus pay less than you bet. No matter what day you go, what time, what holiday, early, late, lunch, dinner, they do not up their payouts ever unlike every other casino. Go here at your own risk if you are a slot fanatic and do not go in with any credit or debit cards. The ATM's are the only machine to pay out at this establishment.
Nobody is happy with the Hard Rock anymore!
I have read all the reviews on here and agree with everyone 100%! This casino sucks on so many levels!! I have been going since they first opened their doors. I am a platinum member but only due to losing, losing, losing on their slots because they are so tight and hardly ever payout. You put in $100 within 10 minutes you have lost all your money - it happens over and over! I am sad because I love gambling and have money to spend but it is no fun when you never win. Also the drink service is terrible and now you have to pay for parking? Are they kidding? So greedy - I am done with them!
DONT GIVE THEM ANYMORE
What a joke my once favorite place has become. For over 20 years I have come here. Since it was a dirt hole bingo hall. I have always been an elite player. You would think after 20 years of helping contribute to building this place, someone would at least know your name. Your VIP status is just a number in their payroll. Otherwise you are a nobody. After reading all of these horrible reviews I'm not sure if it's more comforting to know that I'm not the only one that has lost so much through the years. No one wins a damn thing anymore. NOTHING. I drop 500 walking in the door. Within 30 min you find yourself back at the ATM. Hoping to maybe recoup SOMETHING. YES!! I hit a bonus of 50 spins....and its 10 dollars. WTF is going on here. The fun is completely gone. If you hear anyone screaming it's not because they won. They probably fell out of their chair from holding their breath so long just to hit a bonus round. This is how you treat your regular customers that have built this place. The once fun atmosphere has turned into everyone leaving Pissed off and angry. And how can you keep any VIP status when you can't build any points to keep it. This will be the 1st time I will lose my VIP and now u want to charge me to park after I leave. Like you haven't drained me enough while I was here. If you like pushing buttons, you may find more enjoyment pushing you car alarm button, at least it makes some kind noise. Because you hear no bells going off here. I don't mind losing. I'm not trying to hit it big. I go to have fun. I have met many of friends through the years here, who have also spent tons of money, and I don't even see them anymore, The JOY IS COMPLETELY GONE !!!! You can keep your $10 bonus plays. You can keep your nasty coffee and sodas.. I'm done with this shithole. Another loyal customer Gone!!!
This Casino Will Steal Your Money
This so called Casino (Hard Rock Tampa) should be illegal to run. They have a way to make you lose all your money deceiving you with their extremely LOW Payout return programing in all the slots. Slots have a card that the owner can insert in the machine which determines how much the casino wants to pay us (players) I have seen 98% payback in Harrah's Las Vegas. But I believe the payout on all the (Hard Rock Tampa) slots is 1% if you go on a good night, otherwise it is more likely 0%. If anyone else does this it would be a crime by their own standards.
If you just want to give your money to this (Hard Rock Tampa) casino, then this is the place to go to get mugged by the casino. It is a very deceiving casino. The gaming is not a fair game. This casino is the worst I have ever seen. It will suck your money like a vacuum cleaner, and quick! You will never see or hear someone jumping with joy with a jackpot here. To make things worse, now there is a $10 parking fee, Their steal is not enough, they need to get you with a $10 parking too!!!! The Casino makes 2.2 Billion a year, (Poor players)!!!
Payouts 1% and that's being generous
I have been playing slots and gambling for 20+ years. I'd like to thank this place for not only destroying my slot enthusiasm, but payouts are so bad at this place, I lost all interest in playing slots ever again. 100s of trips here, mainly because it's the only casino in a 200 mile radius, and I now live so close. I'm done. My last visit: I wasn't going to go, but had 60$ in free play and enough comp dollars to buy cigs because I lose so much. Got there at 11 am. Went to the smoke shop, it was closed until 2:30 for some reason. I sat at 3 different machines, 20 in each, straight to 0 in each. I had 300 on me and was like, why not? 11:30 I was at the ATM and stupidly took out another 300. Noon. Was in my car and broke. 600 bucks with my highest payout being 7 dollars on a 4 dollar bet. Trip after trip after trip. You would think ONE TRIP you would hit something, or leave with money in your pocket. The slots just suck your money with no payback at all. I feel like when I go, they watch me, and turn off the payouts on any machine I'm at, and I'm being serious. They don't release their payout information because so many people are getting kickbacks while they supply less than a 10% payout on their slots. They are building more casino, and the player's, especially us poor locals, are paying for it. I lost over the past 6 months over 10k, and never, not once, left with money in my pocket. Once I did, that was because I had the wheelpower to storm the hell out of there before I lost it all. This place is so criminal, but people are getting mega rich and it's not the loyal locals or slot players. This place is sickening and disgusting.
Stop at Rock to pick up my free bottle of Tequila. I didn't waste any money on slot machines. The place was packed. I stopped at the service desk to pay my $10 parking fee with comp money, had to wait 15 mins. then had to wait another 15 mins. waiting to hand the parking attendant my comp. Finally left that place ahead.
$10 to park? Are they Crazy?
Not that it's going to break them but $10 to park I'll never go again.
The shitiest place on the planet
You will NOT NEVER EVER EVER win here
I just read all the previous comments, and they are all very accurate. I am a local and now avoid this place like the black plague. I now travel to South Florida and Biloxi because there are casino's where you can actually win. If you are a slot fanatic like I am, avoid this place at all costs. The only machine to pay out is the ATM. I probably lost, along with my wife, in the 40k range over a few years. You will never leave with money in your pocket, and I have heard from "sources" that the slot payout percentages here are kept under 30%, where anywhere else is between 85%-94%. Slots suck your money like a black hole and never give anything back. If you do win on a slot, it's because you already pumped in over 500$ into a single machine, and you will only win back under 100$. I went there for my last time this past Labor Day Monday and lost a grand in 30 minutes. Place was packed, everyone complaining nothing was paying, and people machine hog up to 5 machines at a time betting minimum and one line. Free play also majorly sucks. You need to lost a few grand to get even 20 bucks back, whereas, I get free play offers for up to 500$ at other casino's.
