Progressive jackpot history
WGS Technology's Progressive Blackjack Jackpot is a game of four deck Blackjack with an added betting twist. To be in with a chance of winning the progressive jackpot, you need to place a side bet of $1 along with your regular blackjack wager. In this game the progressive jackpot is won if the first four cards dealt to you are aces. If the aces are all the same suit you win 100% of the amount in the jackpot pool. If you get four aces of different suits then the jackpot payout is 10%. This Progressive Blackjack game offers some fixed payouts as well dependent on the cards you are dealt:
- 4 Aces, same suit: 100% of jackpot
- 4 Aces, any suit: 10% of jackpot
- 3 Aces, same suit: $2500
- 3 Aces, any suit: $250
- 2 Aces, same suit: $50
- 2 Aces, any suit: $25
The side bet is not mandatory so you can choose to play regular Blackjack without placing the side bet if you are not a fan of progressive bets, or don't feel lucky. On the other hand it is only a dollar that can bring you at times huge amounts of money if that progressive jackpot pays out. The beauty of the four Aces payout is that you do not have to modify your basic blackjack strategy - simply split Aces like you always would and hope that you are dealt another two. As always with side bets at the casino the odds are against you, but you never know your luck.
