PLACERVILLE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2013) - The Red Hawk Casino Card Room awarded a Bad Beat Jackpot to nine lucky poker players on Monday, April 22. The table shared a $50,483 payout. Located on the non-smoking floor, the Card Room offers both poker and low limit blackjack games.
A regular Red Hawk Card Room player from Brentwood, Calif., had quad nines and thought he had a winning hand, but then a Rewards Club member from Placerville, Calif., drew a queen high, straight flush and beat him. This qualified the table for Red Hawk's Bad Beat jackpot of $50,483. The "losing" hand earned the player from Brentwood the top payout of $25,241; the Rewards Club member from Placerville received $12,621, while the seven remaining players at the table each walked away with $1,803. A Red Hawk Casino Card Room Bad Beat Jackpot is paid when a hand of aces full of kings or better is beaten. Both hole cards must play with no more than two aces on the board, and at least five players have been dealt into the hand. Additionally, a four of a kind must have a pocket pair, and the hand must go to a showdown.
