Just hit the 2 Queen of Hearts in Lucky Ladies at Harrah's Atlantic City last night with a $25 bet and the dealer had Blackjack!

Paid out 1000 to 1, for a score $25,000, minus the $100 lost on the hand(lol)





Gonna suck when I have to do taxes next year!

Great hit! How long did it take to pay you? She doesn't have enough purple trips in her tray to pay out $25K, so I'm guessing they had to do a fill. How much did you tip, and did you give the other players anything?

You're gonna get berated for playing sidebets and inferior rules, but don't take it the wrong way. It comes with the territory on the board here. Like I always say, "It doesn't matter whether you had a good or bad bet, it's whether or not you win!" (Wait...)

If you stop playing the bet now, then you're probably way ahead on it, which to you makes it a great bet.

It looks like there's precisely 24,000 in purple and black, but there could be a couple more. However, I guess they still would get a fill.

I noticed there's lammers on the empty spots. It must've been late at night, and were getting ready to close the table.

Took them roughly 10 mins for them to approve the hand aka Check the cameras to make sure I didn't cheat, and bring in the extra checks to pay me.

I gave everyone at the table $100, and the dealer $125. Basically because I was screaming for the dealer to have Blackjack at their expense!

As for why no insurance, I didn't see the need to as I was getting $3000 in the worst case scenario and was on a pretty good run at that point. The Lucky Ladies was pretty much the insurance bet and I'd never seen 2 Queen of Hearts hit with a Dealer BJ, so i didn't really count on it.

In AC, pretty much all the casinos are H17 and on a Saturday night you really can't find much elbow room at a table that isn't.

I was also with some friends who wanted to go to Harrah's and Borgata instead of my usual stomping grounds of Taj and Resorts. So I went along for the ride and found some good return at Harrah's. We played the rest of the shoe and then hit up a strip club. So yea, I did give SOME of the money back, but all for a good cause!!!

Amazing win! How'd they pay that out....I've been to Harrah's AC and I know they keep $1000 and $5000 chips around, and 50 purples seems like a lot to dish out. 10 mins is actually pretty quick. At Showboat AC, a guy hit all 6 points on the Fire Bet and that closed the table for about 30 min while they got the tax forms and drivers licenses verified.
