 (b)  The Super 4 Progressive wager may be played on a Blackjack table that utilizes 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 decks of cards.

 (c)  The layout for a Blackjack table shall be submitted to the Bureau of Gaming Operations and approved in accordance with §  601a.10(a) (relating to approval of table game layouts, signage and equipment) and if the certificate holder offers the Super 4 Progressive wager, in addition to the requirements in §  633a.2 (relating to Blackjack table; card reader device; physical characteristics; inspections) the layout shall contain a separate area for each player designated for the placement of the Super 4 Progressive wager for each player.

 (d)  If the certificate holder is offering the Super 4 Progressive wager, the Blackjack table must have a progressive table game system, in accordance with §  605a.7 (relating to progressive table games), for the placement of the Super 4 Progressive Wager. If the certificate holder is offering a Progressive Payout wager on multiple linked tables or games in the same licensed facility, the progressive table game system must comply with the requirements in §  605a.7 and §  605a.8 (relating to linked progressive table games). The progressive table game system must include:

   (1)  A wagering device at each betting position that acknowledges or accepts the placement of the Progressive wager.

   (2)  A device that controls or monitors the placement of Progressive wagers at the gaming table, including a mechanism, such as a lock-out button, that prevents the recognition of any Progressive wager that a player attempts to place after the dealer has announced ‘‘No more bets.’’

 (e)  If specified in its Rules Submission required under §  601a.2 (relating to table games Rules Submissions), a certificate holder may offer to each player who placed a Blackjack Wager in accordance with §  633a.6(d), the option of placing a Super 4 Progressive wager of $5.

 (f)  After placing a Blackjack wager, as required in §  633a.6(d) (relating to wagers), and any optional wagers including the Super 4 Progressive wager, the dealer shall announce ‘‘No more bets’’ and, if the Super 4 Progressive wager is being offered, use the progressive table game system to prevent the placement of any additional Progressive wagers. If any Progressive wagers have been made, the dealer shall collect the wagers and, on the layout in front of the table inventory container, verify that the number of value chips wagered equals the number of Progressive wagers accepted by the progressive table game system. The dealer shall then place the value chips into the table inventory container.

 (g)  The dealer shall then deal the cards in accordance with §  633a.7(a)—(g) (relating to procedure for dealing the cards; completion of each round of play). Immediately after the second card is dealt to each player and the dealer, but prior to any additional cards being dealt, the dealer shall determine if he has a Blackjack as provided in §  633a.7(h). If the dealer:

   (1)  Does not have an ace showing or have a Blackjack, all Super 4 Progressive wagers shall lose and the dealer shall continue the hand in accordance with §  633a.7(i)—(t).

   (2)  Has an ace showing or a Blackjack, the dealer shall settle each player’s winning Super 4 Progressive wager as provided in subsection (h).

 (h)  If a player has won a Super 4 Progressive payout, the dealer shall:

   (1)  Verify that the hand is a winning hand.

   (2)  Verify that the appropriate light on the progressive table game system has been illuminated.

   (3)  Have a floorperson or above validate the progressive payout in accordance with the certificate holder’s approved internal control procedures.

   (4)  Pay the winning Super 4 Progressive wager in accordance with the payout odds in subsection (i). If a player has won a progressive payout that is a percentage of the jackpot amount on the progressive meter, the progressive payout may not be paid from the table inventory container. If a player has won a progressive payout that is not being paid from the table inventory container, the cards of that player must remain on the table until the necessary documentation has been completed.
