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.

Paid in 10 minutes and no mention of a W-2G. Sounds fishy to me.



Yeah, definitely questionable with that time frame, or they are super efficient. :) One time I saw a straight flush (not a royal) on Let it Ride. They took a lot more than 10 minutes on that. I was just a wandering casino patron...iirc, it was closer to the half hour range.

Edit: Given new knowledge of OP's status, this makes a bit more sense now.

There's a HUGE difference on an LIR game vs. BJ. In LIR, the players hold and can manipulate the cards. The reason it takes so long is because there can be a large amount of doubt if that result is accurate. In BJ on a shoe game, the dealer was manipulating the cards the entire time; proof is pretty easy at that point. Any dealer collusion would be VERY difficult, though not impossible. However, the surveillance checks are much faster: 1) Did the dealer pull out new cards of the shuffling machine? 2) Did anybody touch or move the cards other than the dealer? 3) Did a bet get changed or manipulated in the process of the deal?

I'm sure there are other things they have to look for, but it takes much less time than checking a game where players are holding the cards. Further, if you've ever hit the Fire Bet for 6 points on craps, the time it takes to fill out the information at a full-table is relatively short, and they try to keep the action moving. I imagine it's the same thing for the Lucky Ladies. This photo COULD have been doctored, but the OP was suspended for other comments on another thread, not on this one. I have no reason to doubt that it's legit.

Side bets are sucker bets but every now and then its sure is profitable to have been a sucker.
Or as one dealer opined: "Its only a buck and if you don't bet it and it hits, you will never hear the end of it from your wife".

The casino you play in must be slow.I have had many video poker wins over 8000 and they were usually paid in 10 minutes.The only time it seemed to take longer was if i took a check instead of cash.

I do agree though on table games it usually is a 30 minute ordeal.

Just a few weeks ago, I hit a $ royal at MainStreetStation...took them literally THIRTY MINUTES to pay it out! However, when they did, they counted me my 40 $100's and didn't ask for a tip!

The two times I hit 2QH (both without the dealer BJ) for 200:1 with a $100 sidebet wager I got shorted because of a 10K aggregate on the table. Fills were needed both times and they both took less then 15 minutes to get paid. However those were both under the 300:1 threshold for a W2G to be filed. 1000:1 should have required a W2G. Of course just because the OP failed to mention a W2G doesn't mean there wasn't one.

Very nice hit! I was sitting next to an older guy a month ago when he hit. The dealer had a King. So we had to wait until Security was called. Etc.

The guy was guaranteed $3000. Had the dealer had Blackjack, it would’ve been $10,000 cash here at Rivers in Schenectady, NY.

But the dealer had a lower face value card.

Still, $3K is awesome!

I've hit 2QH several times with the dealer BJ, but unfortunately I didn't wage these. I hit several 2QH though.

I would love to hit 2QH! I can usually tell when the high cards come out with a bunch of low cards are dealt. That’s when I will try my luck at the ladies luck.
