$95,611 Bad Beat Jackpot Hit at Red Hawk Casino's New Poker Room

60-Seat Poker Room Is Located on the Lower, Non-Smoking Level

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2011) - Red Hawk™ Casino, home to some of the most liberal slots and table games in Northern California, is pleased to announce that it awarded a $95,611 Bad Beat Jackpot to nine lucky players on Thursday, May 19.

The group of nine avid poker players had only been playing for about a half an hour when Jerome M. from Diamond Springs, Calif., drew pocket Aces for an Aces Full hand and thought he had a winning hand. However, Bob S. from Diamond Springs, Calif., drew four kings and beat him. This qualified the table for Red Hawk's Bad Beat Jackpot of $95,611! Jerome's "losing" hand earned him the top cash prize of $47,804, while Bob received $23,902 and the seven remaining players at the table each walked away with $3,415. A Bad Beat Jackpot is paid when a sufficiently strong hand is played, but loses to an even stronger hand held by another player.

The 60-seat poker room is located on the non-smoking level at Red Hawk Casino. It features Texas Hold 'em limit and no-limit style games with stakes that accommodate all levels of play. The poker room includes several flat screen TVs and tableside dining. Red Hawk Casino hosts Texas Hold 'em tournaments daily at 10 a.m. and Sunday through Thursday at 6 p.m.
