I only seem to hit royals when I am stuck a significant amount..... anyway I'm still at Sam's Town banging away on the machines. I lost a bit on the Palms bingo drawing (5 play 25c, quite a monster) and came back here to lick my wounds and put time in on the trusty FPDW. Got this dealt (my first one!) and was pushing the draw hand so I didn't get to savor the sound of the credit building up, but it might have been a good idea as some guy next to me was salty about me hitting it.



It's hard to beat the seniors on this machine in the morning, so I usually go play somewhere else then come back in the afternoon when it's empty.

Very Nice!

I hit 4 Deuces on those machines during my visit last month.

The locals beat those machines up.
I don't know everything but I know a lot.

I have dealth one dealt royal in my lifetime and it unfortunately was on level 1 of a $.80 (40 x .02) multi-strike machine. Still, $800 was cool. $6,400 would have been much much better.

Still, a Royal is a Royal. I did manage to hit one in January of this year on the 4x level for 64,000 nickels. That was my last royal.

Awesome and welcome to the club.



+1

I hit mine 16 months ago, and I finally noticed someone else in the casino hitting one on Wednesday. Definitely don't come often. And I would have made the grumpy old man listen to the noise. It was dealt, ffs!

May I add a small, shameful secret?

Ok, then. I've hit one royal in my life, and it was at a nickel machine (the Loose Deuces at the Ditz). The secret is I hit it because I missremembered the Wizard's simple strategy. I held, if memory serves, a suited king and ace. But if that was the wrong play, I should get it wrong more often. I did ot mind the $200 payout at all :P

And little things like this is why casinos have offered things like near or above 100%+ VP for years. Many players will go for the Royal unless it's clearly incorrect. And 2 to a Royal Ace high it's definitely not clearly incorrect in deuces, imo. FWIW, that play costs you less than a penny to make per occurrence on that machine as AK suited is the next best play. The most common unclear incorrect play I see is players is breaking two pair with a high pair in DB, DDB, and TDB. More incorrectly break it than actually hold both pairs because 250 credits is significant to them, but 35 to 50 credits isn't. The error costs with that are much more severe too.

I'm happy your penny error won you $200 though! :)
