A Review of Winners at Table Games Progressive Jackpots

June 6th, 2011  |  Published in Inrodution

Major hits on progressive jackpots at online gaming sites are always a big topic for discussion. However, it is rare to hear about progressive jackpot hits at table games and video poker. This is primarily because the hits are not as large or as glamorous as slot machines. Several table game progressive jackpots were recently hit.

Playtech Progressive Blackjack Jackpot

The most recent win of a progressive jackpot game occurred at an online game of Blackjack through a Playtech-powered casino. The hit occurred on May 22nd, 2011 for a total of $76, 787 and was the largest hit in six months. The player hit the progressive jackpot by being dealt four aces of the same suit. Also, to activate the jackpot, a side bet was required. The Playtech Progressive Blackjack is available at Casino Tropez and Omni Casino.

Vegas Technology Progressive Blackjack

An identical Progressive Blackjack is also provided by Vegas Technology. Similar to Playtech, the jackpot is hit when a player is dealt four aces of the same suit. A hit on this game also recently occurred on May 18th for $160,059. The Vegas Technology Progressive Blackjack is only available at Online Vegas Casino and Go Casino.

Let’em Ride Progressive Jackpot

Bodog online casino is powered by Realtime Gaming but the progressive jackpots are not linked into the Realtime Gaming Network. Instead, the casino has a stand-alone progressive jackpot. On May 20th, the Let’em Ride progressive was hit for the amount of $104, 397. Around the same time, the Realtime Gaming Network Let’em Ride progressive jackpot was hit for $172, 887.

Megajacks Jackpot

Megajacks, a popular video poker online game from Playtech, was also recently hit numerous times. Megajacks utilizes the Jacks or Better payout table which resulted in the jackpot being hit numerous times between $910 and $3,551. The jackpot is activated when a player draws a royal flush with all five coins wagered.

The Growth of the Cryptologic Progressive Blackjack

However, despite the many recent hits during the final weeks of May 2011, there are several jackpots that continue to grow. The Cryptologic Progressive Blackjack is at over $80,910 and is available at InterCasino and VIP Casino. The game holding this wealth is called Triple Sevens.

Progressive jackpots are an excellent method of increasing the amount of traffic at a casino. Although there were recently many hits on these progressives, they tend to build a large sum back up quickly. This proves that table game progressives can be just as profitable as slot game jackpots.

Tips for Blackjack Switch

November 3rd, 2010  |  Published in Gambling Games

Blackjack Switch is a new variant of blackjack invented by Playtech where the player initially places two equal wagers and is, in turn, dealt two hands. At this point the player can utilize the switch option which is to interchange the second dealt cards in their hands. Each hand is then played independently in a regular manner.

Through computer simulation of this game, it has been determined a larger positive value indicates a greater chance of winning while a negative value equals a greater chance of losing. All possible card combinations have been evaluated and assigned an expectation. On the table, the dealer’s face-up card shows within the columns while the player’s two cards are displayed in rows. Hands containing aces and pairs are presented separately.

There are two primary strategies for utilizing blackjack tables for Blackjack Switch including:

  • Deciding upon the switch
  • Playing the hands based on the decision

This table can be used to make the optimal decision in an instance. The player reads the expectation values presented on the chart for each hand and totals them. The player can then find the total in the case the switch is to be made. If the total following the switch is greater than the total prior to the switch, the player should take the switch option. Selecting the switch move is a huge advantage for the player.

To counterbalance the switch option, the rules of blackjack have been slightly modified. For instance, natural blackjack pays even money as opposed to 2 to 1. Also, it is a push if the dealer has 22 but the player will bust on 22. Due to these changes, the regular blackjack strategy card is useless so the player must use the Blackjack Switch card.

Another aspect of Blackjack Switch is the Super Match side bet. This is a bet based on the original four distributed cards and pays even money for a pair, 3-to-1 for three of a kind, 8-to-1 for two pairs and 40-to-1 for four of a kind. This wager is voluntary and offers a higher risk return. This bet is commonly placed for the more aggressive player.

Blackjack Switch drastically decreases the house edge and is therefore a profitable game. It is offered at most Playtech online gaming sites including, Play United Casino, Casino Tropez, Omni Casino and Casino Del Rio. This game combines the fun of blackjack with a low house edge.
