Station offers progressive blackjack over 9 casinos

Station Casinos of Las Vegas this week began the largest multisite progressive blackjack game in the nation, company officials said.

Within days, two jackpots paid more than $10,000.

The group linked a pair of games in Shuffle Master's "Hit and Run" series at nine of its casinos, more than any other previous progressive blackjack pot.

Players making a side bet of $1 against the dealer's hand become eligible for the progressive jackpots. The big jackpot pays if the dealer finishes with eight or more cards, even if the last card busts the hand.

Each of the games scored jackpots in the first two days they were linked. The "Double-Deck Hit and Run" hit at $10,500 at Santa Fe Station and the "Shoe Hit and Run" game paid $15,400 at Sunset Station. The two jackpots currently stand at more than $4,000.

Station Casinos has offered similar blackjack progressives, but the jackpots were limited to the individual sites. The "Hit and Run" game is available at Boulder Station, Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho, Green Valley Ranch resort, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station and Texas Station.
