If they bet $5 per spot at 50-1 that's $250 not $150.so all 3 spots would be a $750 payout. Unless I'm misunderstanding.

No, you're right. Thanks. Brain-o.

[
3) This would concern me more than anything. Combine this with the fact that THREE royals hit in only a 2 day span. I'd say you have better odds that something external was going on than 3 RF's hitting in a 2 day span of about what, 4-5 hours each day?



I had the same thought too (collusion). 3 $450 payouts will make a few car payments. That's why, at our event, we arbitrarily rotate dealers out every 30 minutes or so. Plus, the supervisors are taught to watch if players follow dealers to a new table. And, with the exception of craps and roulette, it is rare for a BJ dealer to have more than $100 in his/her tray. In that manner, if a dealer is colluding with a player, the most they can payout is the $100. Finally, if we have to fill a tray, which we sometimes do, it comes with a new dealer.

I know it's a sad indictment when a volunteer (dealer) would do something like that. I would say with the controls that we have in place, it's really hard to pull off. Not so with a local Knights of Columbus group in my home town. They recently sponsored a "Vegas Night" and a member there to me that they LOST over $50,000 for the 5 hour event. To me, that says that there were absolutely no controls and/or everybody was in on the action: players, dealers and supervisors.

Edit: the Chamber's LIR game had a 30:1 payout on a Royal. My bad.

Same here. Sat next to one in 1993 at Grand Biloxi. Never seen it again.


I used to pay a ton of LiR in the mid to late 90's before I "wised up" and I never hit as much as a four of a kind. Best I've gotten was a FH.

I had 1 SF, ever. In clubs. Had the JT8 in hand, caught the Q, then the 9. Ridiculous. Fun.

Clubs seems to be the suit for me, FWIW. Closest I ever got to the top PGP hand was 6 card SF, 7 card Flush, off by 1 card. 6-J, and the 4.
