Progressive jackpot history
Progressive Blackjack is like putting two things you love together, the excitement and brainwork of your traditional Blackjack game and pairing it up with a chance to surprise yourself with a progressive jackpot. There is not a lot you need to do to qualify for the jackpot, so this means it will not distract you from your regular game. You need to place a side bet of just $1 and you can win the side bet if you are dealt 1 or more aces.
The entire progressive jackpot is won when you are dealt four aces of the same suit. The side bet pays based on the table below, with the highest matching hand paying:
- 4 suited aces: Progressive Jackpot
- 3 suited aces: 5000x the side bet
- 4 aces: 2500x
- 3 aces: 250x
- 2 suited aces: 100x
- 2 aces: 50x
- 1 ace: 5x
You also have the option to just play regular Blackjack, without placing the progressive jackpot side bet, as you might not be a fan of progressive bets, find them distracting or feel they affect your Blackjack game strategy. Then again it is only a dollar and it can bring you a really nice amount of money if that progressive jackpot pays out and it will in no way interfere with your regular play. Keep in mind that the break-even value for the jackpot is £/€/$ 285,951. If you see the jackpot above this level, then the side bet becomes one in which you as the player has an advantage over the casino.
