DOVER, Del. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The Crown Royal Poker Room at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino had a hit on its “mini” $10,000 Bad Beat Jackpot Friday on a Texas Hold‘em table. The jackpot, the newest guarantee addition to no limit hold’em games in the Poker Room, was divided incrementally among the eight players at the table.
