$25,000 three-card poker bad beat jackpot at Red Hawk

By November 10, 2012

A lucky Rewards Club member hit a $25,000 Bad Beat jackpot while playing Three Card Poker at Red Hawk Casino on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Red Hawk offers Northern California’s lowest side bet for a chance to win a progressive or Bad Beat jackpot.

Scott, from Elk Grove, had been enjoying his evening at Red Hawk playing Three Card Poker.  He had been playing for just a short time when he was dealt a queen, jack and ten of hearts.  The dealer’s hand was an ace, king and queen of clubs, beating Scott’s hand.  Because Scott placed the small $1 Bad Beat side bet, and received a pair or better, but was beaten by the dealer’s hand, he won the $25,000 Three Card Poker Bad Beat jackpot. Scott says it was his children that made him lucky and he plans to spend his winnings on them.
