Your money your business,



Thank you.

I've often expressed my preference for lower variance options vs theoretically higher RTP. I don't feel this play was out of line with that.

I'm not sure how I'll play it in the future - but I am at least considering the suggested play.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I would have purchased this hand if I was with you, absolutely!!! Especially on 100-play!

And yes, I would love to buy your "high variance" plays in the future, assuming I get an edge from it and the variance isn't massive [and it's in person....or I get security in knowing you're not offering me a hand "after the fact" (idk if you'd do this or not, just saying)].

I know AxelWolf is interested in buying hands off of people (he's tried to buy my hand from me, before!).



I'll keep that in mind.

No, I wouldn't sell a settled hand. In person, or video proof.
May the cards fall in your favor.

One of my $12,000 hits a few years ago on $1 spin poker was a dealt flush/4 to a royal. You just have to buck up and dump the flush!
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

From the "I got a dealt royal" thread...
Quote: Ibeatyouraces

Today, I had 3 chances with 4 to a royal.

#1, Dealt flush, 4 ROY on triple play UTX with the last hand having a 2x. Bricked the first two and hit a pair of jacks on the 2x hand.
#2, 4 ROY on ten play STP BP, no multiplier. Needed the 10 of clubs. Only hit three flushes, no royals, straights or high pairs.
#3, Dealt straight with max bet on Spin Poker TDB. Needed the Queen of clubs. Bricked all 9 lines.

I haven't hit a four to a royal in ages. They've all been while holding 3 or 2.

Add me to the list of people who threw up in their mouth when they saw the flush held over 4 to the royal. Vomit city.

I know AxelWolf is interested in buying hands off of people (he's tried to buy my hand from me, before!).

I have bought many hands over the years.

My fist good buy in the early 90's . @ LVC I bought a dealt flush with a 4 card RF on FPJW for 25 coins.
And many more after. The best are accidental Double ups. I have given people money for VP/slot progressive seats(up to 1k), must hits, cherry pie slots. I'v bought freeplay, watches, gold, jewelry. I even bought a taser for $5 once. I have even sold seats for thousands.

When Djatc first got to town, I really encouraged him to play the FPJW with double Royals @LVC (close to 4% with everything, he eventually crushed that promotion silly).

He came downtown to LVC one evening while me and my GF were playing. I was still Royal-less at that point. I always played the same machine, because it was the fastest there, and it had sound(I hate silent machines). It was also one of the few that locked up on 5oak. They were coin droppers and Dealing with 1k quarters is a pain in the ass, so a HP is worth a $5 tip, IMO

Anyways, all the machines were taken, so I let him have my machine. A few hands later as he's playing a 4 to a spade RF come rolling in. I was going to buy in for half of the one card draw at the fair amount. I was 1 second away from doing it, but I though NVM it's to complicated with the FP, calculating tips etc etc. No deal. Sure enough he pops it for 2k including double. Talk about beginners luck, he went on an incredibly multiple 5k to 20k short series of royal cycles after that. More than 7 I think, but someone will have to ask him.

That promotion started approximately around the same time The Revel 100k LR and it lasted for approximately 7 months give or take a few.

Then why play this in the first place? It's full of Variance and risk just play Video BJ or something.

It's not even THAT high of variance on 100 plays. Even if you completely brick on the royal, which wouldn't be that uncommon but would be about as common as getting 4-5, you still end up with 20+ flushes, around 30 1 pair, and about a half dozen straights.

I hate breaking up the flush in single line the same way I hate splitting 8's against a 10/A or buying insurance on a weak hand when called for but do it anyways. I completely understand and sometimes choose lower variance with a minor difference with something like playing 9/6 Jacks over 9/6 Bonus Deluxe, but giving up that much EV is more analogous to playing $5 6/5 blackjack instead of $10 3:2.

There's a specific machine in a certain casino....every time I've played it, I've hit at least one royal. My record is 3 royals in a night. The MOST I've ever played it was about 20,000 hands (10 hands at a time) in one day. Usually play significantly less (5-10k hands). I've only got 4 or 5 sessions on this puppy, all with a royal. :)

Nice record. Hard to believe you didn't just move in next door and enjoy the full benefits! :)
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
