However to win the current jackpot as displayed on the jackpot meter you need to be dealt three sevens all in the suit of Diamonds, and this should, on average happen around once every 290,000 hands played.
Playtech also offer a progressive Blackjack game, however the way in which you will win the top prize on the game is by being dealt four Aces all of the same suit, this should happen to players, on average, once every 6,500,000 hands played.
