Blackjack Progressive Jackpots

Most of the leading online gaming software providers offer blackjack games with progressive jackpots to give their blackjack players a chance of winning huge payouts. Some of these jackpots are at attractive levels and are beginning to draw traffic in larger numbers.

The largest blackjack progressive jackpot today is attached to the Vegas Technology game called Progressive Blackjack. The current value of the jackpot is $140,575, which is slightly below the average hit size of $187,328. The jackpot hits on an average once a month. The maximum hit on this progressive jackpot from Vegas Technology was $259,342 about 18 months ago and since then hits are showing a decreasing trend. This is however only a statistical observation and not too much should be read into it. Vegas Technology Progressive Jackpot has paid over $2 million in the last 365 days. Vegas Technology Progressive Blackjack can be played in online casinos like Millionaire Casino, Go Casino and Online Vegas Casino.

At about half the value of the Vegas Technology game is the Cryptologic Progressive Blackjack. The current value is $77,128. This is a very slow moving progressive jackpot that hits on an average for $135,062 but only about once a year. Since it is so far below its average value it is currently growing very slowly. Actually the Cryptologic Progressive Blackjack should be more popular than the Vegas Technology game because it hits when the player is dealt four aces of the same color whereas the Vegas Technology game requires four aces of the same suit. But where the Vegas Technology Progressive Jackpot scores is that it offers 10% of the jackpot amount to players who are dealt four aces of any suit. This smaller but more frequently paying outcome is an attraction. Cryptologic Progressive Blackjack can be played at online casinos like InterCasino and VIP Casino.

The third progressive jackpot blackjack game is from Playtech. Like the games of the other software providers this is also called Progressive Blackjack. The progressive jackpot currently stands at $69,007. This is just more than the average hit of $63,971. It hits on an average every 10 days but was last hit 15 days ago. Another favorable indicator is that the last ten hits have all been in the $60Ks. Hence Playtech Progressive Blackjack is due for a hit. Whether it will be hit soon or not only time will tell, but the time is ripe to get into the game. The jackpot is hit when the player is dealt four suited aces. Playtech Progressive Blackjack can be played at online casinos like Omni Casino, Casino Tropez and Casino Del Rio.
