Playing Bonus Poker at the Meadows Racetrack and Casino located near Pittsburgh,PA I was DEALT 4 of a kind in 2 consecutive hands. Am I correct in determining the odds of doing this are 1 in 17,347,225?

Yep. Congratulations.

There are 624 ways to be dealt a 4 of a kind (52 x 3 x 2 x 48) / (4 x 3 x 2 x 1) over 2,598,960 combinations (52 x 51 x 50 x 49 x 48) / (5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1) for odds of 4,165:1. Square it to get 17,347,225 to one.
