58 Pa. Code § 633b.9. Blazing 7’s Progressive wager.

§ 633b.9. Blazing 7’s Progressive wager.

 (a)  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 Blazing 7’s Progressive wager authorized under subsection (c), the layout shall contain a separate area designated for the placement of the Blazing 7’s Progressive wager for each player. The Blackjack table must have a progressive table game system in accordance with §  605a.7 (relating to progressive table games), for the placement of Blazing 7’s Progressive wagers. The progressive table game system must include:

   (1)  A wagering device at each betting position that acknowledges or accepts the placement of the Blazing 7’s Progressive wager.

   (2)  A device that controls or monitors the placement of Progressive Payout wagers at the gaming table including a mechanism, such as a lock-out button, that prevents the placement of any Blazing 7’s Progressive wagers that a player attempts to place after the dealer has begun dealing the cards.

 (b)  If specified in its Rules Submission 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) (relating to wagers), the option of placing a Blazing 7’s Progressive wager which shall win if either of the player’s initial two cards is a seven.

 (c)  After placing a Blackjack wager, as required in §  633a.6(d), and any optional wagers including the Blazing 7’s Progressive wager, the dealer shall deal the cards in accordance with §  633a.7(a)—(f) (relating to procedure for dealing the cards; completion of each round of play).

 (d)  The dealer shall settle any optional wagers in accordance with §  633a.7(g) and complete the dealing procedures in §  633a.7(h)—(o). After settling all other optional wagers, if a player placed a Blazing 7’s Progressive wager:

   (1)  And the player chose to split, the Blazing 7’s Progressive wager shall be based on the two sevens and the third card dealt to the player.

   (2)  And the player busts, the bust card shall not count toward the player’s Blazing 7’s Progressive wager.

   (3)  The player’s hand shall win if either of the player’s first two cards is a seven. If a player has only one seven in the first two cards, hits and receives another seven, the player shall be paid out in accordance with subsections (e) and (f) for only the seven contained in the initial two cards dealt to the player.

   (4)  And if the first two cards of the player are sevens and the player hits and receives another seven, the player shall be paid out for three sevens in accordance with subsections (e) and (f). If a dealer has Blackjack and the first two cards of the player are sevens, the player shall be dealt an additional card to determine if the player receives an additional seven.

 (e)  If a player has won the Blazing 7’s Progressive wager, the dealer shall:

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

   (2)  Have a floorperson or above verify any Blazing 7’s Progressive Payout with odds greater than 200 for 1 in accordance with approved internal control procedures submitted under §  465a.2 (relating to internal control systems and audit protocols).

   (3)  Pay the player the winning Blazing 7’s Progressive wager in accordance with subsection (f). If a player has won a progressive payout that is 10% or more 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 the player must remain on the table until the necessary documentation has been completed. If more than one player at the table has won a progressive payout that is 100% of the jackpot amount on the progressive meter, each player shall share the maximum amount equally.

 (f)  The certificate holder shall pay out winning Blazing 7’s Progressive wagers at the odds in one of the following paytables selected by the certificate holder in its Rules Submission filed in accordance with §  601a.2:

Hand Paytable A Paytable B
Three 7’s Same Suit 100% of meter N/A
Three 7’s Diamonds N/A 100% of meter
Three 7’s—Clubs, Spades, Hearts N/A 10% of meter
Three 7’s Same Color 10% of meter 500 to 1
Three 7’s 200 to 1 200 to 1
First two cards (two 7’s) 25 to 1 25 to 1
Either of first two cards (one 7) 2 to 1 2 to 1

 (g)  The rate of progression for the meter used for the Blazing 7’s Progressive wager must be specified in the certificate holder’s Rules Submission filed in accordance with §  601a.2. The initial and reset amounts must also be in the Rules Submission and shall be at least $2,000 if the required Blazing 7’s Progressive wager is $1 and $10,000 if the required Blazing 7’s Progressive wager is $5.

 (h)  Notwithstanding the requirements in subsection (d)(4), if the first two cards of the player are sevens, the certificate holder may utilize a dealing procedure wherein the dealer’s up card rather than a player’s drawn card, shall be used to determine whether the player receives a payout for three sevens in accordance with subsections (e) and (f). The certificate holder shall specify in its Rules Submission required under §  601a.2 if this dealing procedure is being utilized.
