Ok so the video is titled vulturing Scarab

Those guys don't know what vulturing is. It's a term they probably heard and think they are doing.

Seeing 3 scarabs after the first spin in the cycle is not vulturing

The bonus rounds are immaterial and just luck on their part. There are edits so it would not surprise me if they were recorded on different days.

So is vulturing Scarab real? Yes

Is the video an example of vulturing? No



Depends on whom you ask what vulturing is. I distinctly remember Phoebe on an episode of friends calling someone a vulture who was just waiting to play directly after someone with no EV, but both Phoebe and the vulture did believe somehow there was value in doing so.

The first sequence could be an example of a "-EV vulture" as there were scarabs left behind, but I doubt it was correct to play off. The rest of the video was editing to make the video look more successful.

The ideal vulture is to play when many scarabs are left behind.

That's just an ideal because after a few moments of game play even a total novice ploppie gets the concept and will play through the cycle if there are valuable scarabs on the board.

The true vulture becomes then not to search for left behind scarabs (that's a bonus if you find any but rare) but rather abandoned CYCLES.

I.E. even with few scarabs, the cycle is on its 6th plus spin. Thereby you take your shot without having to pay for 9 spins to get your shot at a +ev spin.

And hopefully you get the scarabs on your end that deliver the profit.

Because any amount of numerous scarabs are gonna always be played by the ploppies, this makes it so very low AP move imo.

I am referring to waiting around patiently for people to abandon scarabs or traversing casino floors in search of abandoned scarabs. Very low level AP
