Imagine not paying attention and making the mistake of not holding all the cards in this situation?!

When you are dealt a royal, the cards are auto-held for you. No possible way to make that kind of mistake.

The person was obviously playing $25/hand, not $5/hand as Mr Garcia seems to think. Dealt royals are fun, but it's super misleading to suggest that "5 cent" video poker players can win a jackpot like this.

Reminds me of a similar article about someone who got dealt a royal on 10-play 25c UX. It paid something like $36,000 IIRC. The article was all like, "Wow, on a 25c bet he won $36,000!!!!!"

A Royal Flush paid 800-1. I can definitely see why the RJ thinks that is newsworthy

Someone hit a $20,000 jackpot. I'd rather celebrate their good fortune than critique a reporter who appears out of their knowledge zone.

because it is not newsworthy. It is just a dealt royal. He won 800x his bet. Sure that is awesome but not newsworthy. How about the people playing buffalo that win 8k on an .80 bet. 10,000 times their bet is much more impressive, no?

That's not always true. Then again, I probably have the least amount of dealt royals compared to anyone that's played as many hands of VP as I have. Never had a dealt multi line Royal. I had one 1 coin dealt (yes, it was the appropriate strategy to play one coin at the time) I may of had another one, but I can't recall it.

I have connected with a fair amount of double royals holding less than 4 cards on triple play and 5 play. I have had a fair amount of redraw royals, go figured.

I am in the same boat as you. I have never had a dealt multi-hand royal either.
