A once in a lifetime bet

Hey guys :)

BLACKJACK: 1,654,112,547

I was playing blackjack and I hit this bet. The reason why it is so significant for me me, is because my local casino has "side bets" which you can make. A matching pair, like I got with the two queens, pays 30:1 . The fact that this happened to the dealer as well as me is unbelievably rare. The chances of this happening are: 1/52 ^4 = 0.00001368%. This situation will happen once every 7,311,616 bets. To put that into perspective, you will lose on dice 2x 24 times in a row. How incredible is that?

Hope you guys enjoyed the read, I thought this scenario was super special, as it won't happen again, for a very long time :D

Well looking at the given mathemathics of probability it does seems to be super rare. A much fascinating bet you have manage to achieve. :o

Once in a lifetime bet.

I expected some huge a$$ bet that made you rich or stuff xD But if your local casino sees this bet as super rare then good on you, that you hit it! :)

This bet had happened to me last week so I guess I wont be experiencing another one of these bets ? But how can we be so sure about that ? It's gambling so we can't predict right ?

After I see this, I will clearly said that blackjack has infinite amount of deck. xD It will be shuffled after the game ends. About the game too, it always shows Q with 10 value pair for dealer and if you got a same value card : 20. Happened so often, and always get a tie.

I think I agree that Stake's Blackjack game may very well have infinite amount of deck which is similar to Hi-Lo whereby any amount of cards can actually appear such as 5 or more of the exact same card can possibly appear.

That is some insane odds @williamshennie9 - it's epic to see odds like that, it reminds me of the roulette challenge at Christmas, except this is like a once in a lifetime betting odds. Isn't this less common then the 5 million x on mines or not. I don't know. Still, congrats on this and thanks for showing us!

Mfw U didnt win anything. Still looks neat, too bad you dont get anything for a rare outcome :)

If this happened at my local casino, I would have been walking out the richest man in the world :D They have "side bets" which you can make in addition to your main game of blackjack. One of them includes betting on pairs. Since I had 2 identical cards, which matched the dealers cards, which were also identical, I would have won so much money. Pity it happened on Stake and not at my local casino.

I know, because of that four cards make me thinks about the deck too. It was a pure coincidence to get those same cards for fourth times in a one game. 

Not really a big winning, but it was a rare occasion to see, and may answering my question about infinite deck or shuffled deck per picking one card at Blackjack game.

My wager was so crazy take 2 cards from JQ and the machine wins me with AS K and I thought I had already won but well you always know that the machine will always beat us because I had to lose like 10 times with 19 and the machine took 20 Hahaha
