That sucks to pay the side bet, and the dealer not qualifying killed it. That's why I don't play 3cp. Even if you see a hc, it's still a slow game where you hope to win half a bet on the dealer not qualifying. UTH is better.
I saw someone dealt JD KD QD in AC. That's 3 to a diamond super royal which is worth $1mil since he was playing the side bets.
First dealer card was a 10D. Other two were crap. So close, I'm sure the closest I'll ever see.
The pit boss joked that she was glad the guy didn't hit because it would be too much paperwork. The guy didn't like the joke much and quietly let out an F You under his breath.
Maybe the diamond super royal is worth 1M in AC still, but CET quit that promo most properties last year, and all suits are worth 100k.
Jackpot still unclaimed as of Friday morning. I took my $1K shot at it, but now it is time to say goodbye to... "the wonder of it all".
