Ramona Player Scores Jackpot After Getting 'Beat' by Dealer at Barona Resort & Casino

New Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive Proves Lucky for Player, Winning $32,060

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - In less than a week, two San Diego players have won big while playing Barona Resort & Casino's new Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive. Most recently, Club Barona player Mark F. from Ramona scored $32,060 after the dealer beat his 20 with a seven-card 21.

Last week, Danilo M. from National City also got lucky while playing the Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive, winning a $53,151 jackpot. Barona is the first casino in the nation to offer this new side bet option at several blackjack tables on its casino floor.

"We've had two big winners within days of each other win significant jackpots after playing our new Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive," said Mike Patterson, vice president table games at Barona. "This progressive is an exciting way for our players to 'win without winning,' and cash-in at Barona."

The Bad Beat Blackjack Progressive at Barona allows players to cash in on a side bet when 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 on their G3™ device 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.
