High risk, high rewards! There’s nothing quite like a big blackjack win to turn a day around! Just ask this player, who managed to rake in an incredible $307,000 with a single bet. Talk about lucky! This might just be the craziest blackjack double-down we’ve ever seen. Keep reading to find out how it all went down.
Diversifying the bets is the early strategy of this player, playing with 7 seats for a total of $80,000 per round. The player immediately shows his frustration after the 1st round as he lost all seats because the dealer hit a blackjack immediately. As the player stated that every single time that he plays, the dealer will always come up with the winner in the first round and he has to start with a loss.
After a few rounds of playing within the $550K – $400K balance, the player decided to play in a single seat with a $50,000 per bet. That’s when the scary part happens as he loses multiple times while betting $50K until his balance dropped to less than $320K.
However, not long after that, he is playing with 2 seats and having 14 and 10 on each seat while the dealer only has a 3 as the up card. He recognized his advantage and decided to double-down his card with a 10, resulting in a massive $100K bet in a single seat. He ends up with an 18 on that seat and stands on the seat with 14. The dealer shows that the first two cards have a total of 14, hit a 2, and then hit an 8, resulting in a bust.
The player won $307K in that single round and his bankroll ballooned to $570K. He tried just one more time. Played 2 seats with a $35K bet on each and put aside the $500K. Surprisingly, he still won on both seats and leave with almost $660K balance,
In gambling, there is more chance to win than to lose. However, feeling the right moment to bet the biggest can change the game. We may lose slowly but a single win can surely make us reach breakeven. If you’re on a losing streak and won a one-time-bigtime bet to break even, it’s best to walk away and come back another day.
Trying to win more when you’re losing more games will make the situation worse. The same can be said for if you’re on a winning streak, eventually, the law of averages will catch up to you and you’ll start losing again. Just remember that gamble responsibly and only gamble when you’re ready to lose.
