PLACERVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2012) - Red Hawk Casino's poker room awarded a Bad Beat Jackpot to eight lucky poker room guests on Sunday, Feb. 12. The table shared a $38,406 payout.

A loyal poker room player from Placerville, Calif., had four threes and thought he had a winning hand, but then another Rewards Club member from Stockton, Calif., drew a Straight Flush and beat him. This qualified the table for Red Hawk's Bad Beat jackpot of $38,406. The "losing" hand earned the player from Stockton the top payout of $19,204; the Rewards Club member from Placerville received $9,602, while the six remaining players at the table each walked away with $1,600. A Bad Beat Jackpot is paid when a normally "unbeatable" hand is played, but loses to an even stronger hand.

The 70-seat poker room is located on the non-smoking level at Red Hawk Casino. It features Texas Hold 'em limit and no-limit style games with stakes that accommodate all levels of play. The poker room includes several flat screen TVs and tableside dining.
