Red Hawk Casino Pays Out $884,468 Progressive Jackpot

Oakland Nurse Wins Big on Penny Slot

PLACERVILLE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/03/12 -- A lucky nurse from Oakland, Calif., is $884,468 richer after hitting the progressive jackpot on a Star Trek Battle Stations™ penny slot on Monday, 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 plans 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 says she will definitely be back to Red Hawk Casino soon, as it is her favorite place to play.

Red Hawk Casino features 29 community slot machines. Players can enjoy a slot experience with their friends with these group play slots that include exciting bonus rounds for the entire bank of players.

Red Hawk Casino, along with over 300 other Tribal casinos across the nation, belongs to a 17 state Native American progressive gaming network. Any time a coin is played in a linked machine, anywhere in the network, the cumulative jackpot continues to grow until it is won.

In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
While a hybrid cloud can ease that transition, designing and deploy that hybrid cloud still offers challenges for organizations concerned about lack of available cloud skillsets within their organization. Managed service providers offer a unique opportunity to fill those gaps and get organizations of all sizes on a hybrid cloud that meets their comfort level, while delivering enhanced benefits for cost, efficiency, agility, mobility, and elasticity.
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in.

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solutionThe move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will become more and more prevalent At the heart of this technology trend exists a custom solution to meet the needs and concerns of these organizations, including compliance, security, and cost issues Blending Ser...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

When a company wants to develop an application, it must worry about many aspects: selecting the infrastructure, building the technical stack, defining the storage strategy, configuring networks, setting up monitoring and logging, and on top of that, the company needs to worry about high availability, flexibility, scalability, data processing, machine learning, etc. Going to the cloud infrastructure can help you solving these problems to a level, but what if we have a better way to do things. ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
