PLACERVILLE, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- A lucky winner placed the small side bet that resulted in a $101,765 Fortune Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot this week.
The lucky Rewards Club member from San Francisco, Calif., visits Red Hawk Casino often and was enjoying his day playing Pai Gow Poker. He had been playing for less than an hour and was thrilled when he was dealt a seven card, straight flush of hearts. He won the top progressive jackpot of $94,765, plus the $7,000 Pai Gow bonus, for a total jackpot win of $101,765. The lucky player says he'll use some of his winnings for traveling and save the rest.
"It's always exciting to see so many players, winning even more jackpots," says Bryan deLugo, general manager. "Red Hawk offers a large variety of table games and slots, along with first-class customer service proving once again why we were voted Sacramento's 'Best Casino'."
Red Hawk Casino offers a $1 Pai Gow Progressive side bet, 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. A player who places the progressive bet, and is dealt five aces, wins 10% of the progressive jackpot. The top hand in the game, a seven-card straight flush, pays 100% of the jackpot.
