video blackjack help

I posted this on steam too since I play on PC and PS4.

I am wondering how many decks are in video blackjack.  I need to get four blackjacks  in one hand to unlock the silver earrings.  If there is only one deck like most video blackjack machines the odds of getting four in one go seem infitisimally small.  Has anyone done this and how long did it take you?  Most I've gotten is 2 in over 100 hands and I need 4. 

Anyone know the odds?  I presume there is no strategy for this?

Thanks!

Actually if the blackjack machine uses 1 deck the odds of 4 blackjacks are 1 in 1.8 million (4 hands, unsure about 7 but surely also small).  Seems harder than the RF.  Also no big jackpot.  Can anyone comment?

Anyone able to confirm that these are the odds for 4 blackjacks?

I think about 1 in 60,000.  If I did the math right, this is roughly 10 fold more common than being dealt a royal flush in poker.


((4/52)(16/51)x2) Probability of first blackjack
((3/50)(15/49)x2) Second BJ
((2/48)(14/47)x2) Third BJ
((1/46)(13/45)x2) Fourth BJ in a row

Now multiply by 35 to account for 7 hands is what I did.  7!/(3!4!)

Has anyone hit the jackpot?  How many tries did you need?

I know there are at LEAST 3 decks in the machine as I've gotten 3 Ace of Clubs in one deal before.
