Default Eeery Shuffle

I randomly shuffled the deck a few times and looked at the cards, they were in a perfect order:

As2s3s4s5s6s....
Ah2h3h4h5h6h....
Ad2d3d4d5d6d....
Ac2c3c4c5c6c....

All the way down to kings. I was wondering what the chances of something like this to happen? Should I go buy a lotto ticket?

Approximately 1 in 80658175170943878571660636856403766975289505440883 277824000000000000

or if suits don't matter, divide the above number by 24.

You probably just shuffled perfectly 8 times in a row.
