PLACERVILLE, Calif.  (Wednesday, June 27, 2018)  Table game progressives are heating up this summer at Red Hawk Casino.  Red Hawk offers a $1 Pai Gow Progressive side bet, the lowest in Northern California.    A lucky winner placed the small side bet that resulted in a $351,212 Fortune Pai Gow Poker progressive jackpot this week, the largest in the casino’s history.

Dung T., the lucky Rewards Club Member from Sacramento, Calif., has been visiting Red Hawk since the casino opened in 2008.  On his most recent visit, he decided to try his luck at Pai Gow, and was playing for just a few minutes when he was dealt a seven card, straight flush with a joker.  By placing the small $1 side-bet, he won 100% of the progressive payout, $351,212.  When asked what he planned to do with the winnings Dung stated that he was going to use it to travel.

“Red Hawk continues to provide guests with a large variety of table games and slots, along with first-class customer service, proving once again why we are voted Sacramento’s ‘Best Casino’,” says Bryan deLugo, general manager.

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.
