Progressive Blackjack

Online Progressive Blackjack™ Card Game

This is a variation on standard Blackjack that features a progressive sidebet. We offer six deck Blackjack. If you are not familiar with Blackjack, you may want to look at the Blackjack Rules first.

To play the game:

  • Click on chips to select a value and click on the bet area to place a chip of that value. Every left-click increases your bet amount, every right-click decreases it.
  • Click the Deal button.
  • If the dealer shows an Ace, you are offered insurance. Click the Insurance button to insure against the dealer having Blackjack.
  • Use the Hit, Stand, Double and Split buttons as required.
  • Please note that Insurance, Double and Split require additional bets. If your balance does not have enough money to cover these expenses, the buttons will be disabled.
  • If you want to play another round, press New Game. Then place a bet as described above and click the Deal button, or click Rebet to place the same bet as in the previous round.

Progressive Jackpot Side Bet:
In this game you have the option of making an additional bet to try and win a jackpot. Click on the coin slit above the bet area to place the side bet. The blinking light above the slit will turn green. The cost of the side bet is shown next to the coin slit after placing the side bet. Out of the side bet, a certain percentage goes to the progressive jackpot pool. If you get a winning card combination as described in the Progressive paytable, you get an additional payout. The highest progressive payout is the progressive jackpot and is won upon receiving four consecutive Aces of the same suit and starting from the first card in the hand. Note that all progressive wins require that the card combinations (one to four Aces) are consecutive and starting from the first card in the hand. These wins are awarded at the end of the game round, and if you’ve split your hand, they are calculated separately for each of the new hands.

The Progressive paytable is displayed when you click on Show Paytable on the left side of the screen, just under the ticker that shows the current size of the jackpot.

Jackpot

One of the possible wins in this game is the progressive Jackpot, built up by all the casinos that offer the game. A small percentage of each bet, by every person playing this game in each of many online casinos, is added to a common pot. When a player gets the right result, that player wins the entire Jackpot (in some games you can also win part of it).

After a Jackpot has been won, a new pot is started, with the casinos contributing a base amount of money (called a seed). This ensures that even if you get a Jackpot result in a game right after someone else has won the Jackpot, you will still get a large win.

Please note:

  • In some games you have to make a specific bet to be eligible for the Jackpot.
  • If you get disconnected in the middle of a game round, your game does not change the value of the Jackpot. The state of the game up to that point is remembered by the casino; the next time you log in you can finish your game round with the same odds and without placing a new bet.
  • If a Jackpot is being discontinued (a game is closed and removed from the casino client), you will be notified of it by the casino.

The Jackpot for this game works like this:

Seed (how much money the Jackpot starts out with): 50 000 x your jackpot bet size.
Contribution rate (what percentage of each bet goes into the Jackpot): 3%
Win condition (the result you have to get to win the Jackpot): Four consecutive aces of the same suit, starting from the 1 st card in the hand.
Win requirements (what you need to do to be eligible for the Jackpot): Place the jackpot bet.

Multihand:

You can also play this game in Multihand mode. Select “Multihand” in the casino lobby when starting the game. You can play with up to five hands simultaneously. Place bets by clicking on the different bet areas. You can play one hand only if you wish, or any number of hands up to five. Every hand may have a different bet amount.
