If he's dumb enough to walk away from a multiplier, that's his problem. As the old sayiung goes, if it wasn't for poor players in casinos financing our activities, there would be no advantage plays. Are you an AP? You don't sound like one.



Yes, I did say it jokingly, but some people have no sense of humor.



It is one thing if he just walked away, it is another thing if he left because of you...which you sound so happy about causing. And I get the joke, hence, the even if said jokingly, but you try to say there is much worse things to scare people off and that is what you weren't trying to do, but you say that...quite contradicting.

you dont want to wise up the people that are playing the game. look to see whose playing at what machines. then circle back later when the players are gone. or at most only one other player in that bank of machines.

Sorry, but I disagree. I didn't run anyone off. The guy wanted some space and decided to move where there were empty chairs on both sides of him.

I've seen some nasty ploys to get rid of players from key seats, etc., but this certainly wasn't one of them.

21forme "I told my friend we need to hang around until he hits another good hand then scare him away again :-)" I'm not sure how I could interpret this any other way, You knew he was annoyed with you and you wanted to hang around and SCARE him away when he got a 12x.

Hanging around hoping he will leave is one thing. Annoying, bothering, upsetting people looks bad. Anyways I'm over it, I probably should have said nothing. Good Luck

I made a significant effort to vulture Ultimate X tonight while at the casino, and it paid off better for me than it ever has. Found lots of opportunities, and got lucky when it counted. I was hitting at the higher denominations that is. All these within 25 minutes of each other. :)





This last one, I waited awhile because some other guy was on the machine who unfortunately looked like he wasn't all there. He wasn't generally playing max bet though. When he left I scoped out what was left, saw a 10-play quarter with 2X on line 8, and decided to pass for the moment since that's only a little above 100%. But also saw 2X on 5-play, and then decided to play it. Also forgot to put in my card. But I don't mind since these choices helped lead to this...



Once I hit this, I went back to the ten-play with the sole 2X I skipped and totally bricked it. Oh well.

I'm also surprised I hit Aces again since I hit 4 Aces on 1-play nickel bonus poker about 10 hands in tonight. I only had one other 4 of a kind on a non-deuces game all night (5's at nickel DDB).

so I started playing vp again because my local casino stopped allowing freeplay on their e-Craps machine.
(Great Happy New Year to your customers Maryland Live.)

they dont have anything better than 8/5 JoB (97.3%) at low demoninations ($.50).

but I saw ultimate X.
so I assume vulturing ultimate X means sitting at every machine and going thru every game type for a 'next hand' multiplier?

or is it not worth it since I only get $30/week in freeplay?
ie: stick to $0.50 8/5 JoB?



The ult x at Maryland live cannot be vultured. I tried it a couple months ago. When there is not enough credits in the machine to play at least one hand at full coin in I was losing all multipliers I had on the machine. I discovered I needed to keep at least enough credits in the machine so I wouldn't lose the multipliers. I think it has to do with the kind of machine it is. When choosing a game the screen says "loading". These machines are the newer looking ones.

However, I think the ones they have at the bar tops might be like the more traditional ult x machines which can be vultured.

I can't confirm this about the bartops but I know for a fact the newer free standing ones cannot be vultured.

Maybe only a rumor, but I heard some people were tresspassed or arrested for playing Ultimate X in Connecticut
Can anyone substantiate that rumor?

Was back in Casinoland today and saw the same guy at Ult X. I sat down at the machine next to him, ran through the games and played a few rounds. Guess what? He got up and moved to another machine, leaving a few lines with 2x - 4x mults on it. I guess he just doesn't like having someone at the adjacent machine, or maybe it's me. I did take a shower just a few hours earlier...

I would be careful about following this guy around. If he complains, it will take them about 10 seconds to realize which one of you is the sucker, and the casinos love suckers, so you know whose side they will take.

Do you really want to get banned over this? It's not like you've found some play worth several thousand dollars and it's worthwhile to risk exposure in order to get your bets in. Pick your battles...
