SAN DIEGO, CA–(Marketwire – July 7, 2010) – The new progressive at Barona Resort & Casino works like magic for lucky table players looking to win more and win more often. With Barona’s new Magic Progressive, players can place a side wager on their hand or the dealer’s hand for a chance to win the growing progressive in addition to the main table bet.
The G3 Progressive Jackpot and Bonusing System, supplied by DEQ Systems Corp., links table games including Let It Ride, Caribbean Stud, Mississippi Stud, three-card poker and four-card poker. The G3 is a linked table game bonusing system that offers progressive and random bonusing, multiple credit betting, random generated prizes and other cutting edge technology that is focused on increasing table game fun.
“With more than seven ways to win from drawing a royal flush to a magic card, our players have more chances to win from our giant accumulating jackpot,” said Mike Patterson, vice president of table games. “The Magic Progressive is unique because its high-tech bonusing technology allows us to link several different kinds of table games together so that the jackpot climbs higher, faster and increases the frequency of winning.”
Guests can cash in if they participate in the Magic Progressive by drawing a royal flush, straight flush, four-of-a-kind, full house, flush, straight or magic card. Players can win odds on 500 times their original wager ranging from $1 to $5 based on the hand. If the progressive wagered hand is a royal flush, the player wins 100 percent of the progressive jackpot.
“It hasn’t been possible before this new progressive for our players to bet on the dealer’s hand,” continued Patterson. “Already, we’ve had a number of winners including two guests that placed a wager on the dealer’s hand and split the progressive jackpot, over $296,000. We anticipate that we’ll continue to have frequent jackpot hits because this progressive offers these new side wager options and is available on so many different types of games.”
Known as San Diego’s loosest casino, Barona has more than 2,000 slots, including progressive slots and video poker machines. Additionally, the casino features 80 conventional table games including blackjack, Pai Gow poker, Caribbean Stud, Barona Craps, three-card poker, four-card poker, Mississippi Stud, Let It Ride, as well as chipless table games including Barona Roulette, Rapid Baccarat and Barona Blackjack.
