SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) - Red Hawk Casino is pleased to announce that six of its guests shared a Bad Beat Jackpot in the amount of $107,522 by playing No Limit Texas Hold'em on Friday, April 30, 2010. 

Sam M. of Shingle Springs, Calif., had a hand of four fives while playing Texas Hold'em in Red Hawk Casino's new poker room on Friday, April 30. Sam thought he had a winning hand, but was beat by Joseph N. of Placerville, Calif., who had a hand of four sevens. This qualified for Red Hawks' Bad Beat Jackpot for $107,522. Sam won half the jackpot, valued at $53,761 and Joseph won $26,880. The four remaining players at the table split the rest of the prize money, each walking away with $6,720. A Bad Beat Jackpot is paid when a sufficiently strong hand is played, but loses to an even stronger hand held by another player.
