A lucky Red Hawk Rewards Club member won $1,033,328 while playing Rocket Gaming Systems’ $1 Imperial Gold slot machine at Red Hawk Casino in the early morning of April 14.

Rosalie Loyola, of Folsom, came to Red Hawk Casino on Friday night for the Fortune’s Treasures Giveaway Lexus Drawing. Loyola is a regular at Red Hawk and comes to the casino at least twice a week. She enjoys coming for the drawings and gambling with her family. She heard that the Gold Series line of progressive slot machines from Rocket was approaching an all-time high and was expected to hit in the next few days, so she found an Imperial Gold slot machine that looked fun to play. It didn’t take long before the symbols lined up for the progressive payout of $1,033,328.

She was in shock when it was confirmed that she won the top jackpot and could not believe her luck. When asked what she planning to do with her winnings Loyola said, “There’s so much I want to do. Buy a new car … help my kids!” She said she’ll be visiting Red Hawk Casino even more now after her big win.

The Imperial Gold slot machine is part of Rocket Gaming’s Gold Series million dollar line of progressive games and provides players with unique and entertaining themes along with a wide range of bonus round displays. Rocket Gaming Systems is a federally recognized trademark of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma Business Development Authority, an economic business enterprise of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma. Rocket has been providing linked interactive electronic gaming systems and player stations for more than 15 years.

Oakland nurse wins over $800,000

A lucky nurse from Oakland was $884,468 richer after hitting the progressive jackpot on a Star Trek Battle Stations penny slot on April 2 at Red Hawk Casino.

Maricel was visiting Red Hawk Casino with her brother-in-law and had just sat down to the Star Trek Battle Stations community slot machine. She had never played the game before and thought she’d give it a try.

After she hit the bet button a mere three times, the machine suddenly stopped. Maricel called her brother-in-law on his cell phone and told him she thought her machine was broken. Her brother-in-law got very excited and explained that she probably won a big progressive jackpot.

Within minutes he joined her at the machine and a Red Hawk slot host confirmed that Maricel had hit the top progressive payout of $884,468.

After learning of her win, Maricel said, “We always like to play at Red Hawk and almost didn’t come up today. But I ended up getting off work early so we decided to have some fun at the casino.”

Maricel planned to go to work the day following her big win, as she enjoys the help she’s able to provide her patients.

When asked what she planned to do with her jackpot winnings, Maricel explained that she will be helping her family and continue in her nursing career. Maricel said she will definitely be back to Red Hawk Casino soon, as it is her favorite place to play.

Table jackpots payout $35,000

Red Hawk Casino offers players Northern California’s lowest side bet for a chance to win a table progressive.  The $1 side bet is available on Fortune Pai Gow Poker, Let It Ride, Four Card Poker, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’ em.  Players can also place an additional side bet on Four Card Poker, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold ‘em to qualify for a bad beat payout. The small side bet resulted in two lucky progressive jackpot winners recently, as well as a Two-Way Bad Beat jackpot.

On March 31, a man named Joseph from San Jose made his monthly visit to Red Hawk Casino. He won $20,000 with a “two-way bad beat” while playing three card poker. A two-way bad beat is won if the player has a pair or better and loses to the dealer or the player beats the dealer’s hand of a pair or better. He had placed $4 on the two-way bad beat bet and he and the dealer both received a straight flush for a payout of $20,000, or 5,000 to 1. Joseph and his wife are expecting a new baby and he plans to save for the baby’s arrival.

Another lucky Rewards Club member was playing fortune pai gow poker on April 1. She placed the small $1 side bet and won $7,201.

Then on April 3, David from Newark was visiting Red Hawk Casino on a tour with his local senior center. He sat down to play “let it ride,” placed the small $1 side bet and was dealt a straight flush for a $9,049 progressive jackpot payout. David said he plans to add to his savings.

One week payouts exceed $40,000

Four winners took home over $40,000 last week playing progressive table games. The $1 side bet is the lowest in the area.

Two winners took home almost $25,000 playing Four-Card Poker. On March 22 a lucky player from Orangevale won $12,971. A few days later, a player from Hayward had just signed up for a Red Hawk Rewards Club the day before and won $11,828. That same day a lucky Elk Grove player won $10,672 while playing Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em.

Four-Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em and Let It Ride all share a progressive jackpot. Players who are dealt a straight flush win 10 percent of the progressive jackpot total. Players with a royal flush win 100 percent of the progressive jackpot.

Another lucky Rewards Club member from Stockton was at Red Hawk Casino playing Fortune Pai Gow Poker. He placed the small $1 side bet and was dealt five aces and won 10 percent of the progressive jackpot, equaling $6,105.
