Blacjack millionnaire

Blackjack can turn you into a millionaire

A player has just won a progressive blackjack jackpot.

It is indeed possible to win a large amount of money in a casino with a simple bet. We often talk about it in our news section, but these are usually slot machine winnings or video poker. It is not, however, just these games that you can win with. Recently, a player named Manuel Ortiz proved that you can also win with a blackjack bet.

A high progressive jackpot

On March 3rd 2018, this player visited the Live! Casino & Hotel in the US state of Maryland and left the casino with a fortune in the bag. He played for about two hours at the Blackjack Super 4 table, when he made what turned out to be the best bet of his life. With a bet of only $5, he won a progressive jackpot worth $1,075,710.

A special bet

With a bet of only $5, he managed to transform it into a $1,075,710 win.

Such a prize is not ordinarily possible with normal blackjack. The table where Manuel Ortiz played offers a special additional bet where players have the chance to win a progressive jackpot. In order to win the jackpot, two conditions have to be fulfilled:

  • The dealer must get a natural blackjack,
  • You must be able to make a royal flush with all dealt cards.

The player was very lucky and many to fulfil both conditions which allowed him to go home with a huge check!
