I had the itch to play blackjack last night that my casino in Schenectady, New York. Rivers.

Wasnít doing so well in the beginning, but I kept going. I even switched tables.

Next thing you know, Iím on a roll. And then a new dealer arrived. I just kept winning.

Itís a three person table, so I sit in the second seat.

And then, I get one queen of heart. I thought, hmmm.

She dealt the cards to the other players, and then I said out loud, come on, Queen of hearts! There it is!!

She had to call over the floor manager, and then he called security to make sure everything was legit.

The dealer had a king.

I was told if she had a Blackjack, It wouldíve been $2500.

But instead, she had an eight. I walked away with $500!

Surprisingly, I was very calm. The guy next to me was going crazy for me! The best session Iíve ever had!

Congrats on your first big score. Hopefully, it becomes routine.

So, you wagered $2.50 on Lucky Ladies? I didn't know that was possible.

Queen of Hearts with no dealer BJ usually pays 125-1. You had a good pay table there to get 200-1.

I mostly wagered either $25 or $50 for each hand, but sometimes I did three hands at once.

No it isn't. It's an option. The sales reps I've known at Galaxy Gaming generally pitch it at 125-1 for 5 and 6 deck shoe games.

Maybe in your area 125 is the most common.
Some of us travel to many different areas and 200-1 is very common.

I came close to the blazing sevens two weeks ago. I had two matching suits of sevens, the dealer had a seven. had she had another seven, I wouldíve won the jackpot of $63,000.

I have had at least one occasion of having three 7s of diamonds but unfortunately I didnít bet on them. I have seen other people hitting on both the 100% pot and the 10% pot. This is all luck though.
