Barona Player Rings in the New Year Hitting Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive Jackpot

Player Gets Lucky Break Scoring $52,600 Jackpot

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2011) - A recent guest of Barona Resort & Casino scored a $52,600 jackpot at a Blackjack table while playing Barona's Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive after the dealer beat his 20 with a seven card 21. The winner is thanking his New Year's lucky stars.

"It is very exciting to start the New Year off with another big jackpot win," said Mike Patterson, vice president of table games at Barona Resort & Casino. "This blackjack progressive was installed just a few weeks ago and we've already paid out more than $137,000 to several lucky winners. Not to mention the $100,000 Ginormous Bad Beat Poker Jackpot hit last week and the nearly $600,000 Marilyn Monroe slot machine jackpot a couple of weeks ago!"

Barona's Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive invites players to cash in on a side bet when the dealer beats their 20 with a 21. The progressive uses the G3™ table game bonusing jackpot system manufactured by DEQ Systems Corp. All players have to do is place a $1-$5 side bet while playing blackjack.

The bonus is paid out based on how much the player bets and the number of cards in the dealer's hand. Not only does the Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive reward players for getting beat by the dealer, but also offers better payouts depending on how many cards the dealer draws to get 21. If the dealer draws seven or more cards to get 21, the player takes home 100 percent of the jackpot.
