Red Hawk Casino's Pai Gow Poker Pays Out $47,370

Lucky El Dorado Hills Player Takes Home Progressive Jackpot

PLACERVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - Red Hawk Casino's Fortune Pai Gow™ Progressive of $47,370 was awarded to Kevin from El Dorado Hills Friday, Sept. 16.

Kevin has been a member of the Red Hawk Rewards Club since 2009, shortly after the casino's opening. He says he visits frequently since he lives so close. Kevin was at Red Hawk Casino Friday evening with his wife Lora, playing Pai Gow Poker and enjoying a night out. He placed the small $1 progressive bet and was ecstatic to be dealt a seven-card straight flush. This qualified Kevin for the $47,370 progressive jackpot. When asked what they planned to do with their winnings, Kevin said "We're building a house," and they'll use a portion of the jackpot to complete their project.

Red Hawk Casino offers a $1 Pai Gow Progressive wager, the lowest in Northern California. The Fortune Pai Gow Poker Progressive™ allows players to make a $1 progressive bet to be eligible to win a progressive jackpot. The top hand in the game, a seven-card straight flush, pays 100% of the jackpot.
