Station Casinos became the first gaming company in Vegas to link properties to a single progressive blackjack jackpot.

Station linked Shuffle Master’s Hit and Run $1 side bet at nine of its properties: Boulder Station, Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station and Texas Station.

To become eligible for the progressive, players may make a $1 side bet when they place their main wager. The Hit and Run progressive bet is based solely on the dealer’s hand.

Players win if the dealer hits blackjack or the dealer’s hand consists of five or more cards (including if the last card busts the dealer’s hand).

When the progressive is hit, and multiple players placed the side bet, the pot is split among the players at the winning table.
