Red Hawk Casino, voted Best Casino in the 2012 Strictly Slots Magazine’s “Best of Slots” awards, paid two jackpots, in two days, for more than $50,000 to two lucky locals.

Alice, from Sacramento, visits Red Hawk Casino often and enjoys playing slots with her friends.  She and a friend had been enjoying their visit on Sunday, Nov. 4, and were getting ready to head home. Her friend talked her into stopping at a Quick Hit Black and Gold Wild slot for just a few minutes. Alice was glad she had listened, because after just minutes the video reels stopped on all Quick Hit symbols. Alice knew she won something, but was not quite sure how much, until a Red Hawk slot host let her know she won the machine’s progressive jackpot of $23,805. Alice just completed some home improvements and says she will be using her winnings to pay for them.

The next day a lucky Rewards Club member from Placerville, had just arrived at Red Hawk and was playing a Super Ruins Gold slot. He had been playing for less than 30 minutes when the progressive symbols lined up for a $30,120 payout.

    Yeah well now locals are getting killed at the casino. 19 years old is way too young to die. That place is a cesspool. Lowlifes and thugs galore. That place should have never been opened in our county.

    "Alice" and "lucky Rewards Club member from Placerville" were too shy to have their pics taken. Come to Red Hawk and get rich.
