Red Hawk Casino Announces the Addition of New Progressive Jackpots and Table Games - Monday 27th of July 2009

Red Hawk Casino is pleased to announce that Beat the Field(TM), a new progressive jackpot game, will make its world debut at Red Hawk Casino on Friday, July 17. Additionally, Red Hawk Casino has added a new table game, World Poker Tour All-In Hold Em(TM), becoming the only casino in Northern California to offer the game. Red Hawk Casino also added several table games to its non-smoking floor, located on the lower-level of the casino.

Beat the Field is an exciting horse-racing themed, community-style mystery progressive game. Players are allotted horses based on bet level, and compete to win the progressive jackpot. If players advance, they can play the "Run for the Roses" horse race for an additional jackpot. The bigger the bet, the more chances players have of earning additional horses, which increases their chance to hit a jackpot. Beat the Field is manufactured by Konami. More information is available at: www.beatthefieldredhawk.com.

"We are very excited to host the world debut for Beat the Field at Red Hawk Casino. Our players have had terrific luck with our progressive jackpot games, and we are looking for that luck to continue with Beat the Field," said Peter Fordham, General Manager of Red Hawk Casino. "We are also excited to add World Poker Tour All-In Hold Em to our gaming mix."

World Poker Tour All-In Hold Em is a live action poker-based table game that provides players an opportunity to play heads up against the dealer, rather than against other players seated around a table. It is among the easiest table games to play at Red Hawk Casino.

World Poker Tour All-In Hold Em is developed by famed poker author and pro player David Sklansky. The game is licensed to Lakes Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:LACO - News), for distribution. Lakes Entertainment has a license agreement with the World Poker Tour� (NASDAQ:WPTE - News) to use the World Poker Tour name in conjunction with the game.

Red Hawk Casino also added six table games to its non-smoking floor, located on the lower-level of the casino. Games on the non-smoking level include Single Deck Blackjack, Double Deck Blackjack, Six-Deck Shoe Blackjack, and Three-Card Poker.
